My = "Sentimental journey"

Dedicated to my parents: Edward Morton Duvall Jr. and Della Lee Henderson

If I, as a about to be born child, could search the earth to select my about to be parents,
I would have chosen them!
They taught me compassion, trust, guided me, and most of all, gave me love!
I will miss them until the day I go to meet them, again!

Part of a poem, written, by Mable Duvall:

Now the last of the litter, a red headed boy, Ed Duvall, Jr. Pa's pride and joy.
He didn't like schools and he didn't like teachers, He didn't like church and he didn't like preachers
But although these traits are very alarming, He turned out O.K. and rates the word CHARMING.

Of all my memories of Frankfort, Ky., this is my fondest!
When I heard that ole bridge singing, we're close to our grandparents at Forks of Elkhorn!
Some history of this bridge?  
Built in 1893, about 407 feet long, carries on average 6,000 vehicles @ day.

A few miles East of Frankfort, KY!
 Franklin County's only covered bridge spans North Elkhorn Creek and is 120 ft. long and 11 ' 6" wide, 12' high.
The bridge is a Howe truss design. It was built in 1855 by George Hockensmith.
Each entrance has a sawtooth edge, the lattice is pinned with trunnels (treenails). Restored in 1906 by Louis Bower.
Closed to traffic in 1954. This bridge is/was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, 1974.

It was almost destroyed in Mar 1997, by the heavy rains and flooding.
Again restored to its present state by local concerned citizens, with the help of some State funding.
