Cracker Barrel waitress reunited with dead ancestor through photo hanging on Cracker Barrel wall


Sandra, a server at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Owensboro Kentucky, shared a chilling tale with a local country music and news radio station. This waitress found a photo of her ancestor on the wall of the restaurant where she works. Stephen Lenz, who shared the article with us, says: "CREEPY PHOTO ALERT because the portrait looks like an old-timey version of her." Snip from the news story, which I have no way of fact-checking:

[W]hat happened one day while she was working at Cracker Barrel must have felt like a huge ray of hope straight through her soul. Sandra was having a bad day and thinking about her niece, Cammi Jo, who had recently passed away. They were very close. She was sweeping an aisle in the back dining room when she looked up and said, "Oh my lands, it's Cammi Jo." Hanging on the wall above a large round table was an old framed photograph of a young woman and her daughter. Sandra took a picture of that photo and sent it to her sister-in-law, Cammi Jo's mother. As it turns out, the baby in the photograph is Sandra's great-great-great grandmother, and the baby's mother is the one who is identical to Cammi Jo. This picture is the picture that hung above the piano in Sandra's great-grandmother's home. Sandra's mother has since called the folks at Cracker Barrel and arrangements are being made to get the photo back to the family.
