GENEALOGY My mother was Louisa Etta (Marshall) Poore, daughter of William Jefferson and Cary Ann (Mabry) Marshall. The family lived near Laurel Fork, VA in Carroll County and she was the youngest of their six children, born April 15, 1899. She died in Mt. Airy, NC in 1939. Her three sisters were Belle, Cora and Susan. Etta and Cora both attended Normal School (I believe in Galax, VA) and both taught school at least two to four terms. I'd sure like to find out more about that Normal School and any schools they, especially Etta, taught at. Mrs. Judith D.

PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL OCTOBER, 1986 REMEMBERING THE GOOD OLD DAYS BY; HOBART ANDERSON I was born July 19, 1915 and the second oldest of five children. We grew up in the foot hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Patrick County Virginia and lived there through the Depression years of the 30's. As young boys and girls, we didn't know it was hard times, because we had plenty to eat. In the summer we would pick blackberries to sell or swap for food items and in the fall we would dry apples to sell to buy our school clothes. Of course we rasied tobacco too, but in those days tobacco didn't bring very much. I have seen it sell for as little as 10 and 1/20 a pound. I have also seen a lot of tobacco just passed over by the buyers with no bid at all. Then the farmers would have to bring it back home and try to sell it at another time. One year my Dad didn't get enough out of his crop to pay for his fertilizer. But even that didn't matter to us kids, because as I said we had plenty to eat an...

MEMORIES OF MRS. WENGER Mrs. Wenger was probably seventyfive years my senior in 1949. I was five years old; somewhat of a loner even back then. Mrs. Wenger lived two doors up and she used to sit on her front porch sofa quite often. This was a real sofa, heavy and black; not the porch furniture of today. I would walk up the four gigantic steps leading to her porch and sit beside her to talk. I remember very little of our conversations. But I do remember her telling me of her younger days and riding with her husband in a horse and buggy in Highwater. Some days I would find Mrs. Wenger inside. She always invited me in to sit and visit. She had a mantle filled with all sorts of treasures, none of which I remember specifically. I remember only looking up at them. I do remember the little houseshaped wall hanging. It was probably plastic. It had a girl in one door and a boy in the second door. They were attached by some sort of pivot. When it was supposed to rain, one came out; when it wa...

Enjoy clean air and water, low cost of living, a mild but four-season climate. This part of Virginia, close to North Carolina and Tennessee borders, enjoys cool summers yet mild winters.

GENERATION FOUND I'd never seen a porch quite like it. Wide slabs of concrete mounted on concrete risers and flanked by pedestals just made for my thirteen year old musing site. Two sets of steps...one at the side making access from the road with groceries or mail or the apple orchard easy...one in th center, for the seventy foot long porch needed more than one means of egress. The center steps ended in grass and placed morning dew close so my bare feet could caress if not corral it. From these steps I often wandered through the croquet court to the flower garden. The garden was my aunt's special touch of civilization in an otherwise natural setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Fields of brown-eyed Susans and those miraculous orange and yellow day lilies on daylight schedule gave way to iris and flox and special flowers coaxed to bloom. Here is Virginia the morning glory I so carefully nurtured at home was a weed threatening the more desirable Canterbury bells. Sweet peas just grew;...

BACKROADS (Continued from page 22) present day store. Alum Ridge got its name from a nearby cave where alum could be found. Once the cave was a very large room, but a rock, perhaps 20 feet thick, fell from the roof many years ago and blocked a large portion of it. Foxhounds have been known to chase a fox into the cave and fox and hounds all later emerged on the other side of the mountain, but no one has been able to explore the full length of the cave due to the blocked passageway. The visitor to Alum Ridge today won't see the old steam shingle mill or a mailman on horse back and even the old store stands silent, its doors locked for over a year now. One looking through the windows with squinted eyes today can still see the oak post office bins and the worn smooth wooden floors where a community once gathered. The sign out front indicates that the old store and house are for lease and a recent inquiry revealed that for only $400.00 per month, some enterprising individual or couple c...

For those who have not met them settle back and get to know The Mountain Laurel's resident antagonist and friends. "Caleb you cantankerous old cuss, you'd disagree with me if I said your Ma was a fine honorable woman." "Now, now Henry. You know I don't disagree with you just because it's you. Just so happens you're wrong most of the time." "Wrong! Caleb I can't believe I'm hearing you say this. You know as well as I do that every time we turn around anymore somebody is telling us we're obligated to buy something and give it away." "Where is your spirit of sharing Henry?

PACE 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL NOVEMBER, 1986 THE CARTER FAMILY FOLD How many of you remember listening to the Carter Family reeords on an old wind up Victrola? I dare say there's quite a few out there. My Grannie Dollie had lots of the Carter Family records and I was allowed to play them on Sunday afternoons in the parlor. Back in August, I had the opportunity to attend the Carter Family Memorial Festival at Mace Springs, Virginia. It was just the sort of thing that I enjoy, so I was all excited about going. Now I don't like a lot of traffic whizzing by me, so I was really glad to get off the busy interstate and head to Hilton, Virginia where Mace Springs is located. Then I caught my breath once again and began to feel at home. I could see beautiful mountains and narrow country roads. Trees full of grapevines were hanging over the road. Small neat farm houses settled in at the foot of rolling hills. As I rode along, my thoughts turned to the people who settled here long ago. How proud they...

PAGE 4 MOUNTAIN LAUREL NOVEMBER, 1986 The Green River in Wester Kentucky is 360 miles long from its origin in Lincoln County to where it empties into the Ohio River at Henderson. The Green River Basin covers 9,222 square miles, almost 1/4 of the area of Kentucky. The Green River Country encompasses some of the finest farm land in the world. I grew up in this area during the Great Depression of the 1930'5. Although life was a struggle, we still had our happy time. There were play parties, church socials, ice cream suppers and sporting events to make us forget our miseries, if only for a little while. One of my greatest pleasures, however, was listening to my elders relate stories from the past. Many of these stories related to the glory days of steamboating on the Green. Steamboats continued to carry freight along the Green as late as the mid-30's, but the halcyon days of steamboating on this river was in the era just before World War I. Green River has had its quota of rogues, as we...

" GALLIWHOPPER EGGS" (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 4) Africa. There, I discovered a large colony of the rare galliwhopper turkey. These birds stand over 10 feet tall and when dressed and properly cured, will provide meat for an average family of five for one month. As you can see, I was able to secure a few of their eggs. One of these eggs will make an omelet as big as a wagon wheel. I brought back a limited number of these eggs to America since the Museum of Natural Wonders in Cincinnati had expressed an interest in them. There I'm afraid my good fortune ended." Muckridge choked up. He pulled out a handkerchief and dabbed at his eyes. "I apologize for my weakness. My health is shattered as well as my finances." "I'm sorry sir," the woman said, obviously affected. "Didn't you sell the eggs?" "Ah, therein lies the sad story," he lamented, regaining his composure after some effort. "You see, during my absence the curator, and unscrupulous man, absconded with the museum's funds and the museum w...
