Last weekend, my youngest and I got out and drove around Sage, once known as Nubbin Ridge. We've featured one church in the area on a couple of occasions at EIC, the Caney Springs Church. The David Bradshaw home was just down the road from Caney Springs and can be seen in the top photograph. By studying a map provided by De Emmett Bradshaw, son of David, in his autobiography and finding the splendid array of spring jonquils at the very spot noted on the map, my son and I were able to easily spot what must surely be the site of that homeplace. The assertion is supported by another plot of spring flowers blooming exactly where another homeplace now resides and the actual standing building of yet another, the Rush Place, which is pictured in the post below the photo of the old store building (help with name would be appreciated).
We also stopped at what we are told is the old Jennings Place near the Bethlehem Cemetery (house with fallen tree) and another old house along the lane between the Bradshaw Homeplace and the old highway to Sage.
We were told the old Church-building pictured was once the Church of Christ.
