Fantastic site. After seeing, reading and attending the event on June 19th, I am most proud to be apart of this family. Jacob and Winna were my 4th great grandparents. I am also very proud to call Jan Hensley a cousin. What a wonderful, fact finding, dedication Jan put together for Jacob and Winna. Thank you Jan and all the other's who spent countless hours to make this "the event of the summer" in the Shenandoah Valley to have been apart of.

I am a local resident that attended Jacob Smith ceremony today. Just thought you may be interested in seeing the pictures I took of the event. Photography is a hobby of mine and I am not looking to sell photographs. Here is a link where the pictures are located: http://cid-a8bf750578679507.photos.live.com/browse.aspx/Jacob%20Smith%20Ceremony?link=1&groupUpsell=0 Website is nice and the ceremony was great!
