GENEALOGY I just this morning read of your paper in the El Paso Times Geneology Column. I have been doing research on the Dalton family of Carroll County, Virginia using the local Latter Day Saints library. I would appreciate knowing if any of your readers are researching the same family. I have John Alderman's first book on Carroll County with his reference to William Dalton and his decendents (of whom my husband is one). Now I am trying to go backward from William Dalton and trying to do it from the "Great Southwest" gets complicated. Any assistance you could give me would be appreciated. Mrs. Margret B.

PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH, 1987 A WINNING PAIR : FAITH AND GRIT Ben Foley, half asleep, sucked in a swallow of raw smoke and choked. Coughing violently, he grabbed his robe and slippers and dashed into the hallway. His ears picked up the crackling sound of burning wood and a red glow at the front of the house shone through the dense smoke. "My God!" he gasped, groping his way to a rear door. He bolted into the dark, chilly night just as the front wall collapsed. He stood dazed and stared blankly at the hot, red ashes. The inferno marked the spot where earlier that spring night the ancestral Foley homestead had stood, so near the majestic Smokies that on a clear day one could almost reach out and touch the swaying pines. Sally, his crippled, motherless daughter, was the fifth generation to call it home. Now the cycle had abruptly ended. "Thank you, Father," he murmured, "that she wasn't here." His mouth tasted salty and he realized that he was crying. Sympathetic neighbors huddle...

A WINNING PAIR Continued from page 14 Smoky -- after I finish my main job." "You'll be gone all day, Daddy." she lamented. "Sorry, honey, but this'll just be 'til we get settled in a house again. You want that too." "I understand," she said. "I'll try to be patient, like you said." She forced a little smile. "Good, girl." He kissed her upturned face. "We'll both keep askin' God's help." Two months later, he said, "Sam has orders to get rid of a nice bungalow that stands in the path of an approach to the new highway. Says he'll swap it to me for couple weeks of road work. Then we got to move it." "Oh, Daddy," she squealed, "I'll pray about it every day." She reached out her arms to embrace him and her rocker tilted slightly. Her left foot slid sideways on the floor and righted the chair. Ben's heart leaped for joy at the sight of the wasted muscles responding. Praise the Lord! The unspoken words resounded through his whole body and his lips trembled. He quickly decided against callin...

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH, 1987 OZARK DREAMS AND MOUNTAIN MEMORIES This is a true story of a poor Ozark family in the 1930's through the eyes of one of their children. Experience their hardship and heart warming togetherness as they struggle through and celebrate life in the Ozark Mountains. This month we are proud to begin a serialized story by Lillie Emory, a frandmother residing in Troy, Missouri, he story is her personal memories of her childhood. Most people taking a look at Lillie's background and limited education wouldn't have given her a very good prospect for success, but then most people would underestimate the power of Lillie's hopes, dreams and determination. Today Lillie is a successful wife, with successful children and well on her way to becoming a successful writer. She doesn't attribute this success to overcoming the poverty of her youth, but the good use of the valuable lessons for survival it taught her. From her youth she learned the true importance of love ...

OZARK DREAMS Continued from page 16 Many people were there. The preacher said a prayer for the departed one's soul and asked for strength to be given so that the others might overcome the terrible epidemic. The doctor was there, he had used every bit of scientific knowledge that he knew; then he knelt with the others to say a prayer. The photographer was there; he took a picture of the beloved boy lest his image should dim in future years. But alas, it was all in vain for his parents never lived to see the picture. A few times during the years when we were growing up and looked at the family pictures in her big trunk, Mama told us about the tragedy. They had barely said good-bye to her older brother when Mama herself took sick abed. She recalled how at times she was aware during her feverish deliriums that she was being cared for by neighbors, that her Mama and Papa and another of her big brothers were also sick abed. Bits of conversation drifted to her, things she couldn't and woul...

PAGE 18 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH 1987 NEW PREACHER IN TOWN BY: ERNEST MARKWOOD We children were always glad to have Enoch home and regarded his business failures as our profit. He was always involved in many projects to make our lives more enjoyable, such as making a merry-go-round. Taking a big plank about twelve to sixteen feet long, Enoch drilled a hole through the middle for a thick, round, iron rod which he drove into a big post sunk firmly into the ground. This allowed the plank to rotate at speeds which two children about ten to twelve years of age could produce by standing near the supporting post. Boards were placed at each end of the plank to prevent riders from flying off. Once these precautions were taken I discovered that we did not need to worry about a speed limit. Children came from all around Wallace to ride on our merry-go-round. Although we did not think about it at the time, I now know that we were very fortunate in having no accidents at such speeds as we traveled....

NEW PREACHER IN TOWN Continued from page 18 went out of their way in the greeting and attention to all of us, as if to atone for their deception. In relating the story of their elopement, Helen pointed out that her age had been the only point of difference with Father and Mother because she knew that they both liked Seth. She was also careful to remiind Mother that she had been even younger when she married Father. Still, she remembered Mother's frequent lectures while she was growing up on the benefits of marrying at an older age, so she decided to avoid family controversy by heading for the nearby state of Maryland, where a girl Helen's age could marry without her parents consent. The town of Oakland was the first Maryland county seat they could reach by train, so that is where they stopped and asked directions to the Methodist pastor in that locality. To Helen's amazement - and chagrin - the preacher turned out to be Reverend J. B. Workman, whom Father knew well. Having met him b...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH 1987 MR. MATT CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1. custodian of the Meadows of Dan School. His interest in each small and growing child was something many will always remember. Every once in a while I would meet up with Matt and we would reminisce about those school days. Still later Matt came one day to ask if I would haul his horse to Danville. He had sold it to a man down there. He always had a horse till then. Matt was good at auctioneering. I know from experience because I bought a pie one night at a box supper in a little valley school for $45.00 to keep my future brother in law from getting it. During the last several years Matt became a quite a sling shot maker. We sold many of them for him at Mayberry Trading Post. Matt was a good man and I will miss him very much for we shared many of the same paths and joys. 9HHHGP Wt£* '' : '^Plr«l Concord Primitive Baptist Church STRAND, SKEES, JONES & COMPANY CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS SERVING THE BLUE RID...

THE LAUREL FOUNDATION In some respects it hardly seems possible that we've been printing The Mountain Laurel for three years. In others it seems as if it has been a part of our lives forever. One thing certain, however, the four years since the first issue rolled off the presses have been years of learning for us. In the beginning Charlotte kept tract of subscribers names and addresses on index cards and each month retyped a mailing label for each subscriber each month. As the number of subscribers increased it consumed more and more of her time until finally it was a headlong race to get all the names and addresses typed in time for the next issue. As the first year ended it was becoming more and more apparent that some other method would have to be found. We couldn't afford a computer and were at a loss as to how we could continue to operate with our antiquated index card system. Then Freeman Cockram, owner of Floyd Farm Service, told me one day that he'd won a Commodore computer ...
