Lisa and David, Private Eyes Inc.

I got the following email from Lisa a couple days ago with some great pictures to share. Thanks for all the work Lisa and Dave, these are great! As always, click on the photos to see them larger.
Hi Jesse,
Lena had a basketball tournament in Elizabeth PA. Dave and I went exploring for some Turnbull History there. Some of these photo's may already be on the Turnbull Clan Blog.
We spoke to Uncle Paul before we went "hunting". We are pretty sure we found the original house in this picture from his description. He also sent us to Round Hill Cemetery for the grave site. Dave thought the white painted building on the corner below the house in town would have been your Grandma Ruth Martin's family Funeral Home. You may have to ask your Dad or Uncle Hugh about this (Hugh confirmed this). I thought it interesting that if it is the old Martin Funeral Home , now it is called Ella's Boutique.
Hope everyone is well in your family. The Walton Clan Members are all doing well.

Site of Martin Funeral
John Cox was an employee of your Great Grandfather J. Will Martin.
The website said that after your grandfather died , John became the owner of the funeral home. Now it is Ella's Boutique.

Dave and I think that the church in the middle is the UP Church
that your Great Grandfather may have preached in Elizabeth Pa.

These two collages were very cleverly pieced together by Lisa to create a really interesting effect. Well done!
