    If you come back around again, let us know. I've been wanting to sneak into the abandoned Old Taylor distillery in Millville and take some photos. I have some old photos of the place in it's prime, so I'd love to see it now. Another person interested would be about all of the reason I'd need to trespass. (I'm sure several have done it already, I'd just like to see it for myself)
    I think it was actually the Montgomery Inn on the ave. of the same name. Great place with a great innkeeper at a good price. The only complaint was that, (perhaps due to being a former New Englander), she hadn't quite figured out biscuits and gravy yet.

    Knowing the quality of modern-day Old Crow, he most certainly would've understood. But I have to ask, you didn't at least have some ND Crow for the occasion?

    Great photo of the headstone, by the way.

    Cowdery,
    Thanks very much! I'm not sure how easy it's going to be to find once I get there, but you solved that riddle for me. I'll see if I can find it today.

    It wasn't planned and EC just happened to be on hand. We did give him some too.

    The photo is interesting. I was trying to get it and was complaining about how worn down the stone was, as it was barely legible. I had a video crew with me, the lighting guy grabbed a reflector, placed it just so, and voila.

    That is a great photo. Thanks for sharing it. A few more ppl & places:

    George Garvin Brown (1846-1917)- Cave Hill Cemetery, Louisville
    T.W. Samuels I? (1821-1898)- New Salem Baptist Church, Bardstown
    George Dickel (1818-1894)- Mt Olivet Cemetery, Nashville, TN
