Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

The Burying Ground of the Presbyterian Church in Morristown, NJ

Morristown just reeks of history. It was often the headquarters for George Washington. My fifth great grandfather, Solomon Munson, moved here from New Haven, Connecticut before the Revolutionary War and served in the Army. He passed away here in 1803. He was buried in the Burying Ground of the Presbyterian Church. I could not identify his gravestone. There were many unreadable stones. Perhaps one the stones in these pictures is his. I like to think so.

You can see how close the city is.

This picture shows the back of the church.

The next four of my great grandfathers are buried in Kentucky. That is where I am going tomorrow.
