Barn Destroyed Near Leesburg

On November 14, 1922 at 11:00 p.m. firemen were sent to the Carrie Railing farm, tenanted by William Neff on the Walnut Bottom Road in the area of Leesburg for a barn fire. A fire of unknown origin destroyed a large barn, wagon shed and hog pen. Lost in the buildings were two calves, some machinery, all the corn crop, hay, fodder and straw. A damage estimate was not available. When the local fire companies arrived they were of little help because of the lack of water. The Vigilant Hose and Cumberland Valley Hose companies responded to the scene.

This was, more than likely, my Great Grandfather.

Because of the location and name I thought it might be a relation Kevin. The only part that made me wonder was the spelling of the name. I did post the name on today's post just in case it was a relative.
