Overton Hill, Mississippi

Yesterday, Sunday November 29, 2015, I found something on the Internet about a community in Mississippi that has ties to my family. The website asked for those with information to contact them, so I did. I have yet to receive a reply, but since this has to do with my family history, I’m going to post here on my website the same information I sent them. Hello, my name is Larry Gene Overton. I was searching today to see if anything…

Guitar Playing Heritage

For me, playing guitar has always been a family thing. Both my father and grandfather before me played guitar. I’ve known this for a long time, but I wasn’t familiar with the instruments they played when they were young. Going through some old photographs recently, I found two pictures of them playing guitars I’d never seen before. The first picture is of my grandfather, Richard McKinley Roosevelt Overton (how’s that for a name?!?), posed with his brother Jesse. Great uncle…
