Harry Lawler

The post you see directly below this one was my feeble attempt to learn how to use and I have a photo of Harry Lawler, who was a rural mail carrier for Scipio since the Scipio Post Office was opened on May 1, 1934.
I wanted to sharpen this photo a bit, then post it to this blog. Easy, right?
Each website on its own is fine, but somehow I missed a beat when transferring the photo to this blog. So what you see below is one page of the Special 1890 census of Civil War Survivors for Scipio.
Click on this census page, and it will lead you to the other 3 census pages - 2 more for Scipio and one for Venice. And you will also see there, finally, the photo of Harry Lawler!

Sandie, note how muddy the road appears in the picture of Harry Lawler. Scipio roads have come a long way since horse and buggy days.

I think we may have one or two roads left to pave, but all the rest have transitioned from dirt road to pavement in the last 40 or so years.
I will have to write about our dirt roads!
