The Fifth Day - Puckett Cabin and surrounding area

The fifth day dawned nice and clear.

What you can't tell here is how hard the wind was blowing and just how cold it really was. I didn't spend too much time outside the car for this photo.

This is the Puckett homestead. None of Mrs. Puckett's 24 children survived infancy. In her 50s she began being a midwife and delivered over 1000 babies, the last being in 1939 at the age of 102. She died later that year. At the homestead the informational sign bears a picture of her with the last child she delivered.

The Cabin Mrs. Puckett lived in the later part of her life.

The only other building on the homestead.

Driving along, I came across this church. I don't know the denomination.
