A look at the grounds surrounding Susan and Eaton's home in Carrollton. If my eyes aren't deceiving me, that's the lake in the background.
just to set the record straight, that was no. 3
I just thought I would let everyone know that these photos were actually taken on what would have been Susan's 89th Birthday - 30th June, 2006.
That is the lake Susan and Eaton built in the background. There was such a lovely serene atmosphere in the area - probably due to the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and the cemetery nearby.
I will never forget that day - I had spent 31 years of wishing I could travel to Carrollton and now I was actually there!
Thank you, ladies for the photos.
i may have some other photos somewhere. i'll really have to search. Eaton was my uncle although he died before I was born. I was given Eaton as my middle name. My grandfather was buried right near Eaton and Susan and my grandmother, Eaton's sister, still lives in Carrolton. I seem to remember my dad saying he watched Susan get her Oscar from her and Eaton's house. They lived with them for a while, in the guest house until my grandparents could get settled.
Thanks for sharing this neat photo. It is also nice to hear from TJ and his comments/memories.Really nice.
i know my grandmother has a photo of eaton and susan sitting next to the lake. i'd love to get down there to scan it.
TJ - rest assured, a LOT of us would LOVE it if you were able to scan it next time you visit down there - lol.
