Waitress Discovers Ancestors’ Photo on Wall of Restaurant

Cracker Barrel waitress
Dave Spencer, WBKR

The biscuits are warm at Cracker Barrel, but the fuzzy feelings you can get are even warmer.

A woman who works at one of the chain’s restaurants in Owensboro, Kentucky recently discovered a long lost photo of her great-great-great grandmother on the wall of the eatery, according to a report from area radio station WBKR.

While sweeping one day, the woman, identified as Sandra, noticed a photo of a young woman and a baby. Thinking the woman looked like her late niece, she snapped a photo of the picture and sent it to her niece’s mother — Sandra’s mother-in-law. A quick search revealed the baby was Sandra’s great-great-great grandmother. In fact, Sandra’s great-grandmother used to keep the picture in her house.

The eerie coincidence comes with a happy ending: Plans have been put into motion to return the photo to Sandra’s family.
