Shine a light down on me

Not far from my home is a tiny little road called Church Street. It's only about 1 mile long and it's quite far out in the country. Even though there isn't actually a church along this road (I suspect that maybe there was at some time) there is a little graveyard tucked up into the woods. Most of the graves are very old, but there are a few recent ones... It's interesting to see the names... they're all family members of people who still live in this area. And many of the roads around here are named after these families... There's Mahan Road... Reeves Road... Lindenmayer Road (Mr. Lindenmayer still has a farm near here and guess what he raises?.... goats of course!) I think it must be kind of neat to know that your family, for many generations, has lived in the same town, and drove along the same roads you do, and even knew the relatives of your neighbors...
