PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 Editor's Note... The following is an excerpt from the book, "Up Cabin Creek". You can order the book for SIO.OO plus .75 tax and mailing charge from: Mrs. Ellen St John Box 319 D Big Island, VA 24526 This book is rich in detail of how mountain families lived day to day in isolated pockets in the mountains, and the way they related to life outside of the hollows. We think you will enjoy it very much as you take a mental tour of Ellen St John's childhood home in this story. It was taken from chapter one of her book. It was always my favorite hollow house. It was here I was born, my mother before me, and my grandfather and grandmother spent most of their married life here. If we had lived in the west, we would have said, "The Canyon", but here everyone called it "The Hollow". We only referred to it as Gruggis Hollow when talking to strangers. We explained that it was the valley that ran along Cabin Creek. It was tucked into the Blue Ridge Mountains o...

RUNNING THE CORN BY: MARION J. DARRACOTT @ 19!7 Sitting by the fireside near - Recalling his days of yesteryear, Is Grandfather in his rocking chair For us, the grandsons, a story to share "Now in my day..." with his voice so loud "I've done some things of which your granny is not too proud" "But as a young man where I was born - It was custom to help run the corn." Such a puzzled look in our eyes he'd never seen For what in the world did "run the corn" mean? "Well it's easy to see by the looks on your brow That your school learnings have fallen short somehow. Now settle down and let my story begin About the taste of sweet corn and the wages of sin. In leaner days when the going was rough - The amount of government liquor around just wasn't enough Even for those who could afford the stuff - But mountain folks in hard times survive For that's when their ingenuities thrive - And for the taste of that sweet corn a game was born, A game throughout the county known as "running the corn."...

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL APRIL, 1987 You hear of sweet and loving people. Well, we sure have them here in the Blue Ridge. Today I'm going to take you on a visit with two very special people, Hammie and Arlie Cockram. They live in the Meadows of Dan area in the community know as Mountain View. Arlie Cockram is a quiet, soft-spoken woman with a lovely smile. As she talked with me from time to time that smile caused her face to light up. "I was born and raised in Floyd County, Virginia in the section that is known as Black Ridge. My parents were Romanus and Lurinda Salmons Pratt. I had one brother and four sisters." "All of us girls were older than brother and we had to help in the fields. We hoed the corn and got up hay. Back then the hay was cut with a mowing blade, then raked up with a pitchfork. We picked up Chestnuts to buy our things for school. But we had to get out early to beat the turkeys to the Chestnuts." "I attended the Toncray School, walking two miles through the snow and...

QUICKER WITH AGE BY: W. BRUCE WILLIS While reading the February issue of The Mountain Laurel, I was reminded of an amusing incident which happened about 1925 when I was a young boy. My mother's family immigrated to the USA in the mid 1700's. An entry in the records of the New York Port Authority shows a Kimple arriving in 1734. This is thought to be her ancestor. Information on her family is quite sketchy prior to 1809. The family eventually settled in the hill country south of Wheeling, West Virginia. Some of the family were on the Ohio side of the Ohio River. Regardless of the side, it is steep hill country. So steep that the cattle were required to rotate the pasture in the same direction because the legs on the uphill side were much shorter than on the downhill side. This incident involves her Uncle Sam who was a spry 80+ at the time this happened. He lived on a farm which would qualify as an "existence farm", but there was always plenty to eat. Uncle Sam's house was 8 or 10 fee...

EMORY ©1987 This is a serialized, 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 1933-MY OWN CHILDHOOD I'll always remember the day I got my first close up look at the Martin family or as Widow Pollard called them, "That bunch of unwashed, unschooled, and unchurched hillbillies." Mama must have let me tag along to town that day with Papa because she knew I was out in the smokehouse pouting about not getting to go with the boys down on the creek to fish. I heard Papa walk across the back porch and go into the kitchen and tell Mama he had to go to town to the blacksmith shop to get a new plow point for the double shovel so he could finish laying the cotton by. When I heard that, I scurried out of the smokehouse into the kitchen as fast...

OZARK DREAMS AND MOUNTAIN MEMORIES seems I's jest plum wore out. Must b' th' hot sun an' this new youn'un I'm 'spectin'." Mr. Reed looked more than a little nervous, meekly he asked her when she was expecting her new baby. She gave a tired sigh, then sort of peered up the street toward the blacksmith shop then answered, "Well, at first I figured 'bout turnip plantin' time, but here of late I'm figgerin' hit'll b' jest a short spell after the cotton's layed by so's hit'll be jest about any time." I perked up real fast and said, "Mrs. Martin, If you want a new born baby, Dr. Gilbert will take one out to your house in his buggy, for he carries all new born babies in his black bag with his pills and his castor oil." Mrs. Martin said, "Youn'un I wished hit twas that away." Just then there was a loud commotion up the street. It was Mr. Martin's wagon. He was sitting on the edge of the wagon bed with his dusty feet resting on the double tree that held the tongue of the wagon in place. Joe ...

MOUNTAIN RECIPES This month our recipes come from a new cookbook, "Second Dinner Bell". It was published by the Brushy Mountain Volunteer Fire Department in Moravian Falls, North Carolina. It says it is the "Official Cookbook of the Brushy Mountain Apple Festival". It's called "Second Dinner Bell" because it is the second volume in the collection of mountain recipes. Along with the recipes, you get short stories about the residents around Brushy Mountain. My copy of the book was given to me by Ha/el Hedrick, who grew up there and some of her relatives and friends are featured in the book in story and by recipes. You'll find a lot of old time recipes in this book, like how to make mush and hominy. You'll also find recipes for delicious cakes, pies, pickles and wild game meats. You'll find tips on things like how to singe a chicken, make pine tar and what "Dry Land Fish" are. There's a lot of good cooking in this one book and we hope you enjoy a few of the recipes we picked to print t...
