Cracker Barrel Server Finds Ancestors on Wall at Restaurant

Photo link

Most of the time when you go to Cracker Barrel, you expect to find chicken fried steak and giant games of checkers… not your great-great-great grandmother. Sandra, a server at the Owensboro, Kentucky, store, was working and thinking about her recently deceased niece, Cammi Jo. She happened to glance up at one of the old-timey pictures decorating the wall and found Cammi Jo looking back at her. Struck by the uncanny resemblance, Sandra took a picture of the photo and sent it to her sister-in-law, Cammi Jo’s mom. After some research, they discovered that Cammi Jo’s lookalike – the woman holding the baby in the picture – was actually Sandra’s great-great-great-great grandmother, and the baby was Sandra’s great-great-great grandmother.

Cracker Barrel is working on getting the photo back to Sandra’s family.
