Summerville House Perhaps 1950s

This is an undated photograph of the John D. Taylor, Sr.-Jr., house in Summerville, Georgia.  It seems to come from the 1960s.  The car is a 1959 Mercury which my grandfather, John Dodson Taylor, Jr. (1905-1976), bought in 1962 or 1963.  The Volkswagen belonged to Eugene Stoddard Taylor, Jr. (1928-2012).  The context seems to be a family reunion.

This was the house into which my grandfather, John D. Taylor, Jr., entered the world in 1905.  My grandmother, Nell Barrett Taylor spent most her life there also.  My father and uncle grew up there, and my mother, sister, and I lived there for a time.

My mother’s family visited my father’s family at Summerville, Georgia, in 1969.

These images might also interest those involved in the restoration of that structure during the next few days.

These are photographs of the dining room at the old family house in better days.  The table is no more, for example.  But it was a nice piece of furniture.

The text in honor of my grandmother:

…to Mrs. Nell Taylor for her many years of hard work and loyalty to Chattooga High School.

It was an appropriate dedication.
