Mt. Lookout Family Record Book 1938

Here is a copy of  "Mt. Lookout Family Record" by C.A. McClung in Adobe pdf. It was printed in 1938 by Legg's Press in Mt. Lookout. Ronnie scanned this from an original that he found. I compressed it and used OCR software on it so that you could search the document making it a little more convenient. I have other documents that I plan to post in the near future. Please let me know what you think. Enjoy

Mt Lookout String Band

This is my very first blog post. Well, I guess I should say second. I decided to move this from Blogger to WordPress due to additional options.  I still plan to push photos to Facebook.  However, I have don't know what might happen with Facebook and their changes. I would hate to lose any of the information we have been sharing.

It is interesting to know that Mt Lookout had there very own string band. It is even more interesting when you find your grandfather in one of those pictures! I wasn't even aware that he played an instrument. As a kid I never saw him with an instrument. I really know very little about the band or these pictures. Is there anyone out there who can provide any stories or maybe identify anyone in these photos? I would love to know more about them.
