was saddened to discover an old house my family lived in for a few
years has been demolished as the developments continue to grow along
Social Row Road in southwestern Ohio. We were there for my 2-5th grade
years after leaving NC for a work opportunity for my dad - we had over
60 acres and a farmhouse with streams and fields. I grew up thinking
every kid shot guns and rode four wheelers, camped out, and explored old
forests. The home was built in 1803 and as a verified stop on the
Underground Railroad no doubt had a formative effect on my interest in
stealth/evasion, mistrust of various controlling entities, and sympathy
for any person held in oppression. Many years ago I wrote a song about
that house and have sold quite a few copies - here it is, complete with
an aerial photo of the farm we took on a plane ride once. There are some
great people up in that area, hope to visit again soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojYlFNtgy9k
