I do and he was another sweet man. Yes he did drink a lot but he hurt himself more than anyone else. I really liked that man.
I heard he was a highly decorated Military man. Anyone know about that?

I realize that this is an old post, but can anyone tell me more about him? He was my grandfather. I never got to meet him and my father doesn't remember him. Thanks.

I just purchased a military group photo at a garage sale today in Oklahoma. It is not dated. There are some handwritten names on the back... The first of which says, "Pvt. Earl Adams Barbourville, Ky."

Although I currently live in Oklahoma, I am from Indiana. My grandma is from Harrogate/Tazwell so I have driven through Barbourville several times. I bought the picture because it was flag day.. and it seemed special. I will send the picture this week.

I remember Earl very well, He was one of the happiest person you would ever meet . I remember one time when he would ride in old Hearst and he would lay in the back and wave at people. Man that was so funny, he looked so real. I thought the world of him.
