About Me

Carlisle is a major crossroad in my ancestry. Even though I've never lived in Carlisle,

I feel as though I'm home whenever I visit. My ancestors, whether they knew it or not,

 were a part of the town's history. They worked on the railroad, owned a couple of

grocery stores, ran the funeral parlor, and helped in the establishment of the town's

Methodist church. They now rest in the town's cemetery, but I think their memories

are imprinted in the buildings that still stand.

I live in northern Iowa, but glad I can be connected to Carlisle through the web! Can't

wait to see future updates. Excited to see old pics!
