E. Ray Austin's Vietnam - Album #5 - HHC, 12th Combat Aviation Group - “Blackjack Pad” and “LZ Plantation”
A small collection of Vietnam Photos I took while assigned to the 12th Combat Aviation Group located at LZ Plantation also known as Blackjack Pad, outside of Long Binh, from January 1971 until January 1972.

“Blackjack Pad” and “LZ Plantation” was located just across the fence from 90th Replacement at Long Binh and pretty close to the Bien Hoa Air Base.

#18 - Ova Lowe House at Norma
From the John Ward and Jodi Briggs photo collection. Visit them on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/ExploringForgottenPlaces/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums

The house is located between the Norma Church and the Norma School, and back in 1960's and 1970's was occupied by a Mr. Ova Low (10 Jun 1889-18 Sep 1973), a brother to Holly Lowe, from Smokey Junction area. Ova's wife, Ada Pearl (ADKINS) Low, was born on 27 Mar 1899 and passed away 16 Nov 1937. Ova's sister, Teshie (LOWE) Kagley, used to live in a small building next to the house or maybe in the same house, I can't remember.

(Note from Walter Williams: Nov 07, 2014)
What we all call the Ova Lowe House, was really the “Office Building” for the Band Mill that was located in back of the Office Building (Ova Lowe House). Ova Lowe bought the Pond and the old Mill that was in back of the office building, and some land back of the Mill toward the Church, up the Creek too, including the barn which belonged to the Lumber Company. Some of the Old Mill Building was still standing and had a lot of the old casting (Iron) in it. Before WWII, Japan was buying “scrap iron” in the U.S. and times was really bad and everybody was selling all the “scrap iron” they could find. Trucks was going around the county hunting junk. Ova Lowe had a lot of buyers come visit him wanting to buy what he had in the old Mill. He would not sell it. He would tell them that all of it is going to Japan and they will be shooting it back at us someday. When the War started he sold all of it (for our use) and tore down what was standing of the old Mill building.

Dean & Roach Creek Mining Pictures
A collection of photographs pertaining to Coal and Coal Mining. Some taken by me, but most of them was given to me. People and places in and around the coal mining business at the Dean and Roach Creek mining camps and other places. Dean and Roach Creek was booming with activity for many years until its final closing sometime around 1959.

A large number of miners worked at these coal mines and lived with their families in the camps where almost everything was provided by the coal company; houses, school, church, and even a store for their grocery and hardware needs. We have a lot to be thankful for because of their hard work and meager living conditions that existed for the miner and his family.

If you can identify any of these pictures, please, contact me and I will make the changes. ERayAustin@outlook.com
