about 1927

Below is a picture of my father Alfred Damon born in 1900 and was printed in the Lakeland Ledger many years back.  I'm sure you knew what that ice was all about because I sure do.  Alfred's mother was Esther Lewis, born 1874 in Montbrook and raised there by her father Brunson Lewis and mother Sarah Wiggins Lewis and six brothers and sisters.  I love the picture because it says so much about the past.  Brunson and Sarah are buried in Montbrook (Williston) and some of their grown children are buried there also.  I believe they are buried in the Plummer Cemetery in Montbrook.
