Searching for Gonny’s Head, Finding the Ruins

Click below for the full story:

I was joking when I told her I wanted to find the old man’s bearded head. She’d watched me for a moment, sly-smiled, and called me a resurrectionist.

When Gonny lived here, harvested his home, and built his house, small wild horses still roamed these coastal marsh islands.

    Love your work. Follow all. Marcus Jones was my brother’s father in law. I remember wonderful trips to visit Willie Brown & his brother. They had an old, rounded trailer packed full of books, I have always wondered what happened to those books. Mr Jones worked as a maintenance man at St Vincent Hospital. He was of Minorcan descent. His 97 year old wife is still allive. Still drives.

    You make Jax history so interesting. What I was taught in 3rd grade was Cow ford and the Great Fire. That was it. Keep up your work. I look forward to it.
