In addition to his visit to the Coffee Mill, Franklin Heatwole will continue the conversation with a slide show at Park View Mennonite Church fellowship hall at 1600 College Avenue in Harrisonburg on Wednesday, June 26th at 1 pm. His presentation will include a number of sites (Pleasant View Church, Sparkling Springs, Brunk, Funk, Lincoln, Suter) and cemeteries (Brunk, Shank, Blosser, Lincoln, Trissel), with many references to DAVID and MAGDALENE H. and their Virginia Children.

Viewers are encouraged to help identify some of the sites that I took photos of and can’t remember their significance.
