WAVELAND

NOW I CAN BORE YOU WITH OLD PICTURES AND HISTORY.

This picture was taken in 1942 of the homeplace of John R. Wilson and Eliza Pitts Black Wilson. They had two daughters and two sons to survive. The two daughters married brothers.

One son was a Captain in the Confereate Army. He is Prince's Great Grandfather.

Before the war, Waveland was nestled in a grove of Red Oaks. However, the timber was cut by the occupying forces.

Cousin Will and Cousin Mary Lu never married and they lived at Waveland. Cousin Conn said they would fill up one room, lock the door and begin filling up another room.

Cousin Conn had only a couple of weeks to move the older cousins from Waveland and salvage any furniture and documents, before the Nashville Airport bull dozed it down so they could build a runway.

The Kitty Justice is that there was a family graveyard and no one seems to know where it went of if it stayed.
