Are You My Cousin?: Granddaddy and the CCC Part 2

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Granddaddy and the CCC Part 2

Lester Howard recovering from pneumonia

Not long after arriving at the CCC camp in Old Fort, NC, Granddaddy became ill.  Quite ill, actually.  Here are his words:

...I did not get out of bed.  When I did not report the C.O. and the company Dr., a Captain Kerr, came to check.  After examining me I was sent to the hospital with pneumonia for five weeks.  I was very sick.  High fever and packed in ice for several days.  The doctors did not give me much chance.  After the hospital I did not have any duties for some time......

There is more to come.......
