About 1/2 way through our "short cut", came across a road sign "Billy Jiles Memorial Highway". That's my cousin!!! I knew it was a big to do for his funeral (10 years ago) but I didn't know they dedicated the highway in front of the sheriff's department for him.

Kind of cool and sad at the same time.



No highways are named after any cousins of mine (to my knowledge), but there is a skate park named after a first cousin twice removed. It's located in Columbus, Indiana and is called the Jolie Crider Memorial Skate Park. Jolie was my cousin Jo's granddaughter and died from meningitis back in 1998 at the tender age of 14. I never met her and wasn't even aware of her existence until a few years ago.
