So you're Sue's son?!? Wow...
I got to know Eugene when I moved to Richmond to go to college. He helped me find a place to live as at that time there wasn't a lot of student housing at VCU. At that time he preferred to be called Bob, for reasons I don't completely understand.
I went to design school in Michigan and moved to Martinsville in 1975 to work for a free-lance designer there. I went free-lance myself shortly afterwards and lived there until 1979 until I moved to Lexington, NC, where my family lived.
I started researching our family history about the time my father passed away (nine years ago). My dad and his family were never close to his father and it took some time to make the connections. His grandfather is buried off of Doe Run Road in Rocky Mount in the old homestead.
Do you still live in the Collinsville?
