Quickie Puzzle: Not much of a mystery picture

2016-02-06 - ??? - Photo by Linda Waggener, CM photo.
This is a Quickie Mystery, should be answered by Breakfast O'Clock, and no later than the noon lunch/dinner today. Everybody will recognize one of the most familiar travel marking places, even in the rear-view mirror. But how many know the names of the streets or roads which intersect here, and more importantly, what the roads used to be. Just send your comments using the "Comments" button with the picture. One may think it not important, but this question could be on a future Adair Assimilation Academy final quiz to become a born again, just moved in, in from off, newbie with full rights. You never know. - EW

Query: Looking for information on Landrum family

Maggie Landrum Murphy was the First Lady of Columbia when her husband, Dr. W.R. Murphy, was Mayor of Columbia

By Andre' Landrum

While going through some of my late mother's files, I found a large brown envelope with a note from Maggie Murphy (wife of Dr. W.R. Murphy of Columbia) to my father Edward Landrum of Lumberton, MS. Mrs. Murphy was a Landrum by birth and apparently had tried to do some kind of history of the Landrum family that she came from, going back into the early 1700's when two Landrum brothers, James and John, came to America from Scotland.
