Jenrou_My Great Grandparents-Jumpstart 2nd week

My inspiration is (one of) is April's http://scrapgirls.net/forum/gallery/image/139250-duffey-family-1910/

Journaling:
William G. R. and Mary Belle F. R.

Uncle Billy, (as he was called) as a young boy walked with his family's wagon train from Alabama to Texas. All of the family farmed, and he sold vegetables from a horse and small cart. He married Mary Belle and had a large family. As you can see from the derringer stuck in his waist-band, it was a hard life, protecting family property.

As they got older, they lived with my grandparents in the house in the photo. It was called the Old Place, and where eventually I was born.

    Wowie! I have been looking through the JJ Gallery and this jumps out! I love reading about other people's heritage and you have provided such wonderful detail here... terrific choices in colour and style to work with heritage photos too, and you used Antiquity which I find so adaptable... This is a beautiful beautiful page.
