Tell It Like It Was - Part 2 of the Dismal Trade

Gentle readers, Friends of Historic Augusta has posted part 2 of my Dismal Trade story. In this episode, you’ll learn about Olie Thilking, whose name still appears on the Pitman-Thilking Funeral Home in Augusta. 

You might also be interested in knowing about the connection between the funeral home and the Bank of Augusta. 

I will share more conversation between me and funeral director, Jim Pitman, and digging deeper, the Grim Reaper interviews the best Gravedigger in southwestern St. Charles County.

P.S. Curiosity did NOT kill the cat. Nurture your inquisitive being.
