Roy Skaggs of Hodgenville shares this photo of his grandparents, Luke and Bessie (Skaggs) Skaggs, taken in the early 1900s. The couple was “courting” at the time the photo was taken. Luke was from Green County and they eventually moved to Hodgenville. Working on his family tree has been difficult since Bessie’s maiden name was also Skaggs, according to Roy.
