The Farm of My Ancestors
This is the home I spent most of my formative years in. My Grandma Ames lived there with my Aunt Donna, my Uncles and Great Grandfather Motimer Managan. The home was built by Mortimer’s wealthy brother in New Orleans, founder and co-owner of Krause Managan Lumber Co. in New Orleans…still in existence today as K and M Lumber.(This is another story I will talk about later.)As a little girl I had freedom to run those hills and make all kinds of fanciful discoveries, including An old cellar from an ancient log home to wild May Flowers to a huge mud turtle in the pond.
