    Bassojjb,

    I look forward to your future postings here and in many of the forums here. We're finding; is that some names are shared by other states, same with roads. So, if you will - when you are talking about Arlington, please denote which one-- Arlington, Virginia, Arlington, Texas, etc. Columbia Pike, is another common road term; so it would help to know where this road is--Virginia or elsewhere. That way, we're able to follow your topic/words/comments and observations.

    Please know there are no quotas but, certainly want to hear from you, in this case--more often :wink:

    Post when you feel comfortable in doing so and at your own speed.

    No limits on how much you post.

    References are wonderful if you have them. It is great to go to the same book, page and read as another poster has; to read all of what that page has to offer. I like official records myself. So, I post all the information I can as to share.

    Personal opinions and comments are welcomed also. So, don't feel this forum requires only references as to post comments about. However, I must mention that it does help when it is expressed when a post is a personal opinion or a statement of facts.

    I look forward to your posts. Forums are habit forming, especially when there are new discoveries and pictures.

    Respectfully,
    M. E. Wolf
