Becky Went To Sturgis On Saturday

The picture to the right is of Becky(far right) and her family on the Spread Eagle Tavern tour. Becky had a busy day touring places in Columbiana County! She also went to Sturgis Funeral Home for the Pretty Boy Floyd event held from 3 to 7pm. She said it took two hours to tour the house and garage. The following images really caught her eye.

The first pic is of Glendon Floyd, who is now 85 years old. Becky said he is quite the ladies man and enjoyed telling stories and signing autographs. The next one is the death bed of Mr. Floyd that his body was displayed on.

The hearse is like the one used in the 1930's. It comes from Roberts Funeral home in Wellsville. Nice people, Roberts Funeral Home, by the way. In my research for The Fairview Schools, they were very helpful to me and I greatly appreciated it.

The family portraits are the original owners of the Funeral Home. And the final pic is what caught the eyes of many. People dressed the way they did in the 30's. It made the whole experience that much better to see them walking about. It gave the visitors a real feel for the place.

Thank you Becky for sending me these great pics. Becky is also interested in the history of the area and is fast becoming a great ghost hunter. Research is 80% of what makes ghost hunting successful and she is very good at it. Keep up the good work Becky!!
