PAGE 14 - THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL - AUGUST 1986 She was the proverbial bane of their existance. Stubborn and prone to kicking, her brown eyes often held a sneaking look that meant she was contemplating her next escape. With long scrawny legs and one horn that pointed north and one south, the old cow was the embodiment of all that was contrary to the two little girls and she was their responsibility. It was during the summer of 1908, while their brothers were busy helping tend the tobacco, that Ollie and Elvie Wilson spent much of their time pushing, prodding, dodging and retrieving Old Moll. This day was no different except that the cow had chosen to start late in the afternoon up the path that led to the flats above the small mountain farm. Their mother, standing in the kitchen door, yelled for them to hurry as they started up the narrow mountain path. The foliage was lush and green and it was already starting to get dark under the thick canopy of trees. Both girls were barefoot and ea...

THE GHOST AT THE WEANING HOUSE (continued from page 14) saucers and her mouth was hanging open. She was staring past Ollie at the little cabin. Ollie slowly shifted her gaze and then she saw it - a luminous white figure as tall as a man was standing by the porch. "Oh Lord, Ollie - it's him!" cried Elvie and she promptly shut her eyes. Ollie's mouth became suddenly dry and she could hear her heart beating wildly in her ears. She wanted to run and scream, but her bare feet were rooted to the spot. Only Old Moll, who had stopped again, stood between them and the pale apparition. Moments passed and when the figure in the distance had not moved or made any sounds Ollie decided they should try to make a run for it. She started to move, but Elvie had dug her heels into the ground and would have sat down if Ollie hadn't had such a hold on her. "Come on El vie," ordered Ollie, trying to sound brave. "We've got to get home and besides we're not Indians." Not real Indians anyway, she thought t...

PAGE 16 - THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL - AUGUST 1986 A row of cabins formerly occupied by slaves but long since vacant lined the garden. At one end of the acre was a grape arbor that produced large, sweet juicy purple grapes from which Grandma made jelly, preserves, juice and wine. The east corner belonged to a grand old gnarled crabapple tree. Grandma would send all the grandchildren up the tree to pick the tiny tart-tasting bitesized fruit for crabapple jelly like only my grandma could make. Just a few feet from the back porch with the swing and the north end of the garden was the smokehouse where all the meat was preserved and kept until it was needed each day. The smokehouse was also where all the kids could go for a piece of sweet smoked ham (if Grandma didn't catch you). The equivalent to a city block from the house was a garage (for Grandad's Model T) and connected to it, in fact, the 11/2 cups sifted flour 2 tbsp. baking powder 1/4 cup sugar 1 tbsp. salt 3 cups yellow cornmeal 2 eggs...

PAGE 18 - THE MOUNTAIN LAUREL - AUGUST 1986 April 18, 1899, was the brightest of days. The shining of the sun was ideal - birds were singing, flowers were blooming; orchards were beginning to send forth their fragrance, making the farmers appreciate their efforts in growing orchards, as they could enjoy the sweet odors wafted to them in adjoining fields, where they were plowing to raise more corn, to fatten more hogs, to get more money to invest in more fruit trees. On this memorable day, all nature seemed to be enjoying more life; and two prospective farmers, my husband to be and I, on that lovely spring day began a new life by making it our wedding day. Happy in our choice, we started from Montgomery County, Virginia to the rugged picturesque County of Giles, arriving at our destination with the paltry sum of eighty-five cents. On investigation, we found a fifty-cent piece dated 1833, which I have to this day, so we had only thirty-five cents as a beginning. Previous to this event...

Margaret Jane Simmons Jessup was born April 25, 1863. She was the oldest child of Jack Simmons. The Simmons family lived in the Westfield community of Surry County, North Carolina. When Margaret was a small child, she was bitten by a copperhead snake. Her leg where the snake had bitten her soon turned black and was swollen quite large. A traveler came by and told her frantic parents to kill a chicken and cut it in half and cap it over her leg. As the chicken died, it would pull the poison out. The family did this and it worked. However, each year as the date of the snake bite drew near, her leg would swell and turn dark. When Margaret was sixteen, she met Yancey H. Jessup. They were engaged during the Christmas of 1878 and married May 8, 1879. To Margaret and Yancey were born six children - Laura Jessup Love, Elijah Jessup, Samuel Jessup, Sara Jane Jessup Banks, Ezra A SLEEPWALKER'S DREAM - A TRUE STORY BY: GENE HENDERSON ©1986 Once when I was a small boy about ten years old, I drea...

Late of evening when the water reflects each lightning bug in star-like clarity, the breeze barely ripples the water, but it sends goose bumps racing up your sleeves. The river offers an escape to anyone who needs to cool off. When city folks get hot, they go to the mountains. When mountain folks get hot, they head for the river. After this BACKROAD tour, you'll see why. We will begin at the intersection of I--81 and Route 100 South at exit 29A on I--81. If you're headed south on 1-81, you can intersect the tour at Exit 35, which is mile 41.3 on our tour. Traveling north on 1-81, you would start at the beginning of the tour, Exit 29A. All of our BACKROAD tours make a complete loop and end at the point of beginning. For this reason, you can begin at any mileage marker on BACKROADS, whether it's the beginning, end or middle, and the tour will deliver you back to where you starte...

BACKROADS (continued from page 22) is a huge white two story home. It once belonged to the Snow family who were early settlers in this area. We are now entering the community of Snowville, Virginia. 34.2 (0.2) As we enter the small community of Snowville, Virginia it is hard to imagine that at one time it was a bustling industrial center. During it's heyday, prior to the Civil War, it was described as the largest industrial center between Lynchburg and Bristol. The beautiful old two story home we can see to our left here was once the home of Dr. Chester Bullard. Dr. Bullard died in 1893 and the home was sold to farmer George Summers by Dr. Bullards' son around 1896. Mr. Summers' grandaughter, Mrs. Eloise Summers Lucas, was born here in 1901 and she was kind enough to share her memories of early Snowville with us. Her father Glen Summers ran the grain mill and hauled freight by wagons throughout this area. Mrs. Lucas recalls the 20 room house was often filled with school teachers, dr...

MOUNTAIN MEMORIES LAUREL LIBRARY COLLECTION # 2 ' ' 1 N w f i•' • (A. Monthly Journal of Mountain Life A SPECIAL TIME FOR MEMORIES In everyone's life there is a special time to be remembered and cherished, the individual event or circumstance that evokes a memory so perfect that reflection gives it an aura of enchantment. The time often has no special importance in the shaping or making of destinies, but in memory, it is a special time. Perhaps it is a moment of clarity from childhood and the recollection is of a dusty country road in the cool of a summer evening when whippoorwills and crickets are serenading a sunset. Perhaps the special memory is an inner city sidewalk on a bright spring morning when neighbors are venturing forth to face another day. The settings of these special times and places are printed ihdelibly into each of our minds. Often we don't know why that particular moment stands out so perfect, but the beauty to such moments is that they require no analysis. They w...
