Class ring and return

December 28, 2021 06:04PM
The 1964 class ring from a military academy that was closed in 1970. St Emma in Powhaton Virginia. Only all black military academy in US. Founded by Catholic order on old Plantation. Building gone, house preserved. Returned to owner. Nice fellow, also like me retired cop, but i still work. However it got away from him, in 66, it made it to Macon. He visited Macon in 2006. And probably walked over it during the Cherry Blossom rip off festival. Strange thing. He was from Detroit Michigan and moved to Ga breifly 3 to 4 hrs from Macon. Thats when he visited, 30 plus yrs after loosing ring. Think it was lifted by army guy since he was also a veteran. But thought he was in Honduras when it dissappeared. Fellow soldier maybe passed thru or from our area. Had big train depot and bus stations. Who knows but its home. Big historical thing at old site now, news story on it. Preserved property now.2000 acres. New owner leaving it as is with old house museum. Large slave cemetary.tv documentary too. Cockney plantation. The journalist contacted alumni association who gave me his name, Mr Frank, who now resides in Vancouver Washington state! One of you NW folks now!

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
