A few years ago I made a group site on Facebook called Memories of Grover, Colorado. In it I placed all the photos my mother, Mary Jackson DeGraw had of her home town. My grandparents, Myrtle Jackson and James Jackson lived their most of their lives. If you had family from there, you might find photos of them in this group site. If you would like to become a member, please let me know. Also, please feel to share any photos from Grover that you think people might enjoy.
