Grandpa was a farmer.  He farmed land at Flintville, Tennessee, later at Mountain Fork Creek near New Market, Alabama, then near Vann Town, Tennessee.  His money crop was, of course, cotton.  To the right is a picture of the mules that he and son Andy (in picture) worked on the farm.

Jim was also a carpenter, making furniture with simple handtools.  He would cut white oak splits to bottom chairs with.  I have a small rocking chair that he made for my mother for her (I believe) second birthday.
