All My Troubles Seemed So Far Away


Oct 19, 2019

It’s been a good day so far! Been getting things done outside…it’s supposed to rain tomorrow.

I figured since I shared some of my memories with you earlier today, I’d share some of the photos I have from way back when. Some of the photos aren’t perfect, but they’re good enough. I kinda like the “old” feeling. Most of the pictures are from my dad’s side of the family.

Hope you enjoy!

I haven’t been able to identify this man yet

I have no idea who this man is, but the photo was in with my grandfather’s stuff.

Benjamin Morris
my great grandfather

Benjamin was born in 1879 in Pennsylvania, died in 1953 in Pennsylvania. His wife was Margaret “Lovey” Divelbiss. Her mother’s name was also Margaret, which is how we believe she got the nickname.

Joe and Martha Divelbiss
my great grandmother’s step brother

Joe was born in 1866. I don’t know when he died, but it was after my dad was born (1937) – we have pictures of my dad with Joe. His great great great great grandfather settled in Frederick. I found it very interesting that my fifth great grandfather settled in Frederick and my dad ended up moving here in the 60’s – not knowing any of this. (We didn’t know much of anything about the Morris’ until a couple of years ago.)

Frederick County Farm
circa 1920’s

My grandfather on my mom’s side – I believe – took this photo. I was told, growing up, that my grandfather and his family would come up to Frederick/Braddock Heights during the summer. Braddock Heights was originally founded as a summer resort, which included several hotels, a community pool, a roller/skating rink, amusement park, scenic overlooks, nature trails and until 1890 a small ski resort. There was a trolly that ran from Frederick to Braddock Heights, it ran right in front of our house. I’ll be sure to post more about Braddock at a future date (Braddock Heights was named after British General Edward Braddock), as it is basically in my back yard and I used to go roller skating up there all the time.

I have yet to determine exactly where the photo was taken – I know it was along 340 somewhere (it is written on the back).

my dad
7 years old

I have a photo of my dad where he looks like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals. I will find it for you.

Tomorrow is National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day, National Brandied Fruit Day, and National Youth Confidence Day.

That’s about all I have for you at this time.

I hope you enjoyed!!

Have a great day, night or evening – where ever you may be!!

Thanks for stopping by!
