On a recent Saturday afternoon, Nannie Garrett was watching TV and flipping through the day’s edition of The Winchester Sun. Normally, Garrett’s attention would have been focused on the Kentucky Derby being shown on TV, but when she looked down and saw an unidentified picture in the paper, her heart skipped a beat. “I said, ‘What’s Daddy’s picture doing in my lap?’” Garrett said. “There was nobody here but me, so I thought I might be having an out of body experience.” A few days earlier, Ruby Jacobs stumbled across two pictures at the Old Rock Barn on Boonesboro Road.
