In Which I Fail to Find Eliza Allen Houston Douglass Again, Even though I Know She’s in that Cemetery
This is the old Bellemont Mansion up in Gallatin. The name was later changed to Foxhall. It’s now being transformed into the clubhouse for Foxland Harbor. They let me take pictures of the outside. I hear construction workers belief it’s haunted.
Here’s a better shot of the side.
I like the replacement windows they’re using.
Here’s the view it has.
The front of the house.
Weird side of the building.
This is Adelicia Acklen’s first house with Franklin–Fairvue
Here’s a building I thought might be an old out building.
Another building I thought might be an old Fairvue outbuilding.
Lining the drive in they had these weird outbuildings, whose purpose I couldn’t decide on.
Here’s one up closer.
And then, off I went to the cemetery to fail to find Eliza Allen, yet again. Here’s here mom, Letitia.
Here’s a new marker for Eliza’s parents.
Here’s a Letitia Allen, who I believe is the daughter of J.A. Blackmore and Martha Allen, so Eliza’s niece and the first Letitia’s grand-daughter.
Here’s John Allen, Eliza’s dad.
Here’s William Douglas, Eliza’s son.
Here’s Harriet Douglas, Eliza’s daughter.
It’s hard to make out, but i think this could be another Letitia Allen, probably Eliza’s sister.
This is either Martha Allen (wife of J.A. Blackmore)’s grave or one of their kids.
Here’s what appears to be the whole old Allen plot (there are a shit ton of Allens in the cemetery, though. This is just the oldest plot.)
Here’s an unrelated headstone the font of which I liked.
A better shot of it.
And another awesome font.
Busted up tomb
Headstone behind an Allen grave. I was trying to see if there was any writing on it.
