Do you know the history of your house? and your ancestors
I was thinking do you guys know the history behind your house.
The home i live in was built some where way back. I think 18hundreds are something. It used to be a hotel back in the civil war era. It was aslo a slave plantation. Later on they separate the hotel into two homes. One was one time on the church propriety <....spelt wrong? but then was taking down are something as this was before i was born into this world. any ways my house. while having some modern things added to it like a bath room and electricity and a few modern windows and a siding is to old. We have to run most things off a drop cord. Any ways. A little family history as well. Where i live my ancestors owned everything the farms the lands and so on in this area. I know sounds crazy. So really i should be rich are something. But somehow the money was lost are something i dont know as i never ask my grandmum. While she was but a child here parents the bobit side owned a gold mine and some things. Again i dont know all my history but some how are something went wrong and money was lost. I enjoy asking my grandmother about my past family she has millions of storys. But sadly by the time i was born all of them was dead. Thank god my grandmum is alive.
My house is around half my age. I think it hit 10 years last summer. It has always been ours. I really don't know what was there before my house was built. I think it was just a random strip of open land surrounded by older houses, or something. I'm sure my parents probably know what was there before. Maybe I'll ask one of them some time.
My current house was built in the '50s. It's got that super American feel to it. It's real small but comfortable, screen door, separate garage in the back, old orange tree, etc. 50-60 years ago, it probably had an apple pie cooling on the porch, a father in a white shirt and black suspenders going to work, a mother in a dress getting the kids ready for school where they'll go practice bomb drills for when the Russians attack, and what not.
I don't know anything about my ancestors, I just know one of my super great grandfathers supposedly robbed a train or two with Frank and Jesse James. I don't know if that's true or not though.
Well I checked with a pair of aces, got a third ace on the turn, and the river put a pair of sevens on the table. I figured nobody was holding onto anything stronger, so I went all in with my three aces and the sevens' pair - a full house.

wtf alternative reality did I wake up to where duby makes an interesting thread...
Anyway, my ancestors are apparently some French nobles that hitched a ride over to England with some random beret wearing, baguette eating twat named William somewhere around the year 1066. That's as far back as I can find anything.
As for this house, dunno, probably made by some fat northern bricklayer about 40 years back.
