PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL FEBRUARY, 1987 To Editor Susan Thigpen, The story is enclosed from my great aunt Myrtle (grandfather Papa John's sister). I've kept it as original as possible, the edits minimal. Aunt Myrtle was born Myrtle Tee Jane Lockhart on May 18, 1890 in Buncombe County, North Carolina (Asheville), the first child of Kenion Rufus Lockhart (born September 15, 1862 in Greenville, South Carolina) and Effie Emma Peace (born July 31 1873 in Buncombe County, North Carolina). Father Kenion Rufus worked on the construction of the gigantic Biltmore House in Asheville. He proved to be a top notch mechanic, supervising the steam generating plant that hoisted materials to the upper levels of the mansion. Soon after he was offered a job as superintendent of a water pumping station on the Yadkin River, pumping water to cool the steam locomotives on the Southern Railway Lines. A good paying job at $40.00 a month, it included railroad housing and use of a velicopede (Myrtle pronounced ...

MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH A MOUNTAIN LION BY: CATHY FERGUSON © 1987 We were very young when we first met. The morning was cold, rainy and the forest # was still except for an occasional rifle shot heard in the distance from hunters. Neither of us knew exactly what to expect from one another, but I suppose that didn't matter as our naivete brought us standing in front of each other. Thus began my love affair with a mountain lion whom I later called "Mush Puss". I remember those yellow eyes pulsating with a warm glow bf affection, vibrating with a yearning almost unappeasable, with a reaching; for things unseen. Those tawny brown kitten spots and most of all, that silly little growl followed by an enormous yawn. I scooped this bundle of fur injo my arms and began to search for my father whom I was certain wasn't far as he liked to camouflage himself in the blackberry bushes among the trees s<i the deer wouldn't see him. I was supposed to be by his side but I had an urge to explor...

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL FEBRUARY, 1987 During my genealogical search of the Pangle family I discovered a distant cousin living in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is Mary Evelyn Forrest, the greatgranddaughter of Isaac Newton Pangle of Frederick County, Virginia (1824- ). Isaac Newton Pangle was the older brother of Richard Strother Pangle, my great-grandfather. Mary was a grandmother for the first time in November 1986 and she is confined to her bed with progressive multiple sclerosis. When I contacted Mary she was delighted that someone was researching her Pangle family roots. She has fond memories of her childhood in the hills of Northern Virginia. Lying there in her bed day after day she mentally retraces the long walks she took along the wooded paths of the low lying hills near Marlboro Virginia with her "grandpap" Randolph Jackson Pangle (1862 - ). Mary had no information on her Pangle family roots beyond her "grandpap" and she was convinced that there was some great mystery surro...

* Mazie and Ben had been married for three whole years now. She considered herself to be the luckiest woman in the world. Ben was good looking, a hard worker and a romantic. They had got married on Valentines Day and for a wedding present, Ben had given her a little porcelain music box in the shape of a heart. "You know you have my heart for always. This will keep reminding you," Ben had said as she unwrapped the present. Mazie had wound it up and listened as the heart played, "I'll Be Loving You Always". Mazie and Ben courted for two years before they were married. Even then Ben was every woman's romantic dream. Every time he came to see her, he brought her something - A bouquet of flowers he had picked, a small bag of candy - always something to let her know he thought about her in everything he did. He never made a big deal out of it. He liked to surprise her. And Mazie looked forward very much to those surprises. They weren't wealthy, by far. But when Ben went to the store and r...

The old home place is located about two miles east of Groundhog Mountain. Wilcher married Rhoda Marshall when he was 21. She was the daughter of John S. and Nancy Brancome Marshall. Wilcher and Rhoda spent the entire 72 years of married life on the same farm which is about one mile north of Laurel Fork, Virginia. The house they built is still standing. The hundred acre farm cost $400.00 and they paid the lien in full in 1881. Wilcher and Rhoda raised 12 children of their own plus three of their grandchildren who were left without a mother at an early age. I have heard Wilcher speak much of his early married life. He told once of walking many miles to borrow a sifter. They sifted all the corn meal and wheat flour (and they used a lot in those days), then Wilcher walked the mile back ...

We were literally in the clouds. Great billows of dense fog blew across the road, limiting visibility to only a few feet. Rain hissed against the windshield as we sat waiting for it to let up. It never did. We had come to the top of Roan Mountain to see the famous rhododendron gardens but the front lashing the ridge forced us to turn around and go back. Half way down the Tennessee side we dropped below the level of the clouds. It got lighter but the rain never ceased. Then, at the state park near the bottom, we saw a sign to "the farmstead". It was apparently one of those living history exhibits. Since we had missed out on the rhododendrons and had plenty of time, we decided to take a look. The entrance road climbed steeply and eventually ended in a large gravel parking lot. Before us in a once-secluded hollow with its red roof glistening, was a trim white farmhouse. A few outbuildings and a small barn of roughhewn timber stood nearby. An old Chevy was parked under some trees near t...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL FEBRUARY, 1987 WORK AND PLAY DOWN ON THE FARM As we grew to school age, we were given more chores inside and out. The two older girls, Jessie and Lenora helped with the milking before and after school and the older boy, Richard helped Papa with outside chores. Edna, my sister two years my junior, and I filled the wood boxes with wood in the kitchen and on the back porch. In the winter we built a fire in the dining room, set the table for supper, tended the small children or baby while Mama prepared supper. In the mornings before breakfast, we made our beds, built a fire in the dining room, set the table and packed lunches for the school age children, which consisted of ham or bacon and apple butter on biscuits, and most mornings Mama made an extra treat for the lunch boxes; tart shells filled with chocolate or vanilla pie filling; or a large skillet of sweet buns, which we called stickies. These were biscuit dough rolled thinly and covered with a mixture of b...

WORK AND PLAY DOWN ON THE FARM Continued From Page 20. time, but that is another story. It was not all work and no play, but we had to supply our own forms of amusement. There was no money for store bought games or toys, with one exception. I recall another one of Papa r s surprises. He had told our Uncle Tom who lived in Galax, to bring us a croquet set the next time he came for a visit. This was indeed a welcome surprise. We enjoyed this game for several summers and wore most of the grass off the front yard in the meantime. Most of the time we improvised. Jack rocks were small smooth stones. Bubble blowers were wooden thread spools, rubbed on a cake of Mama's home made soap. Jump ropes were lengths of rope cut from Papa's supply of worn rope. Our basketball goal was a large unusable bucket with the bottom knocked out and nailed to a tree or outside shed. The basket ball was a large rubber ball, a Christmas present to one of the younger boys which we had to grab on the sly when the...

BACKROADS (Continued From Page 22) source of this information. Mrs. Smith also told an interesting story about the house next to theirs. The house was built by her great-grandfather, Eli Williams, in the 1830's. He was the son of Roger Williams and came to Floyd, Virginia from Maryland. He was business partners with a Mr. Tousey from New York. Mr. Tousey, being a bachelor, lived with the Williams. day Mr. Tousey asked Mrs. Williams if he could have a crock. She found one for him, but her curiosity got the better of her, as she wondered what he wanted it for. Mr. Tousey's room was a little room on the porch that has long since been torn off. Mrs. Williams peeped through the keyhole of his room and saw Mr. Tousey sitting on the bed with piles of money, stuffing money in that crock. He took the crock and headed off down the creek. No one to this day knows what happened to that crock or the money inside. Mrs. Smith said that many people have hunted, but it was never found. 13.2 (0.1) He...

It is dedicated to Mr. Matt Burnett of Meadows of Dan, Virginia who passed away as we were preparing this issue for the presses. Mr. Matt's memories of Meadows of Dan during the first quarter of this century were featured in the very first issue of The Mountain Laurel. It was February of 1983 when we both happened to be at Parkway Car Care Center on US 58 in Meadows of i)£n. He was as usual carrying one of the walking canes which he had hand fashioned out of an oddly shaped sapling he had found in the woods or someone had found and brought to him. He stood Wafting out the window across US 58 toward The Craft House and shared his memories of Meadows of Dan. That conversation became "page 2" of the first issue of The Mountain Laurel.

PAGE 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH, 1987 MY GRANDMOTHER, SARAH CHRISTINA STOWERS 1855 -1936 Monday morning as I hung my clothes on the line to dry I thought of Christena. She was my Grandmother. Come Hell or High Water she always washed on Monday, washing on the board all day long. Before she did this she made her own soap. First a hole was bored in the bottom of a wooden barrel; then the barrel was set on a bench. Some straw was placed in the barrel with fresh wood ashes on top of the straw. When the barrel was nearly full of ashes water was over the ashes. A brown liquid would drip out the hole. This was the lye she needed to make the family's soap. She would test it to see if it was strong enough by dipping a feather in it. If it ate the feather it was strong enough. When a mother came visiting her with a baby or small child the mother would usually visit at our house and bathe the child. Grandmother never guessed what was going on. Hollyhocks, lilacs, snowballs and day-lilies surround...

WAR GARDEN One fine spring day during World War I Mr. Meek, our county agricultural agent, came to school and made a talk on "Victory Gardens". His speech fired us kids with patriotism. We boiled with enthusiasm to till the soil and help win the war. I volunteered; and after school ran home, full of energy and determination to get the project under way. Mother gave me some change to buy seeds. Soon I was back from the seed store and hard at work in our backyard. I had chosen the minimum specification which the county agent had set forth for a victory garden. My garden was the size of a small rug. So it didn't take too long to get the job done. When it was completed I looked over the project with the pride of accomplishment. The rows were laid out reasonably straight; and at the end of each row there was a stake on which was impaled an empty seed packet. In this way I would know what type of produce to expect come harvest time. The job well done, I turned my attention to other activi...

I only wish I had more time to talk with them. This month I'm introducing you to two of my neighbors, Benton and Claudine Wood. "I think I'll start with you Benton. Tell me about your life from a child on up to now." "I was born in Patrick County at the Tabb Webb place the year of 1911. My parents were Rufus and Bertha Wood. 1 have three brothers and two sisters." "The first thing I remember as a child was living in a log-bodied house in the hollow below the Gaston Anderson place. I remember Dad getting hold of an old buggy someplace. Me and my brothers made us a wagon from it. We would get in it and down the hill we would go just a flying" "Our house was two storied.

BENTON AND CLAUDINE WOOD Continued from page 4 just to get to go to school." "School lunch in my day was carried in a Karo syrup bucket. I carried milk and bread a lot. It would freeze where I had set it in the cloak room, then I would have to set the bucket on the stove to thaw my milk and bread. Sometimes I carried pancakes with fatback between them. They would be frozen and I could hardly bite them. But they were good." "Recess and lunch was always fun. We played hopscotch in the old dirt road in front of the school house. Sometimes we played Drop The Handkerchief. I love to play the guitar, so my friend Geneva Pendleton and I played together. We would go into the woods and set on a log and play our guitars. The other children would gather around us and listen." "I remember the Christmas tree and programs at the school. My first doll was given to me by Santa at the Christmas tree when I was in the first grade. She had on a white dress and bonnet and was wearing little shoes. It w...
