PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MAY, 1987 RIVERBOATING BY: W. BRUCE WRIGHT ©1987 Editor's Note... Last month we printed a story called "Quicker With Age" by Mr. Wright, and mistakenly got the name Willis instead of Wright on it. We apologize, Mr. Wright. Those of you who read The Mountain Laurel regularly, may recall the story about Uncle Sam who in his eighties was becoming quicker with because when he slipped it did not take him so long to fall. Well, Uncle Sam had a son, Carl, who was about my mother's age and he also was a farmer in the hill country south of Wheeling, West Virginia. As a lad of about age 10, we visited Cousin Carl. The trip to his home was made by river steamboat, down the Ohio River from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to the small town of Clarington about 30 miles down the river from Wheeling. As the Eagle, (Eagle, not crow because I live on Eagle Lake Drive) flies, Clarington is about 60 miles from Pittsburgh, but by river it is about 100 miles. At the time my mother, her s...

How do children survive their childhood? The fact that they do is attested to by there being so many adults in the world. However, there are many children that do not survive the many perils that they encounter. This story is not about them, but it is about an event that causes one to wonder how some of them survived. Life for children in a Coal Camp, along the New River, in the Blue Ridge Mountains is not all dull and dark. There are so many interesting things to do, like riding a flat piece of tin, pulled up in front, off a tail slate pile. The sound is of thunder as you rumble down the slide and strike the ground, then you rally from a stunned condition to check and see if any bones are broken. There are abandoned mines that never paid off. To slide and pull yourself deep into these holes and to poke your fingers through the rotted props that are supposed to hold up the roof. Yes, this is entertainment supreme. However, not quite up to the adventures related below. The weekends w...

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MAY, 1987 CHILD OF THE 1920'5: LIVING AT PAPA'S PLACE Editor's Note... The following is one of a series of articles written by Grace Cash. She lives in Flowery Branch, Georgia. Watch for more of her stories in future issues. In the 1920's we lived several years at Papa's Place. He owned the land, fourty-four acres of red hills and hollows and pine woodland. He built a new three room house with a front porch, and he dug a well on the kitchen side of the house. I was born at the "new house", and the two younger sisters were also born while we lived there. Papa's Place was the beginning of many fascinating things in our lives. It was there that Mama taught me, at age four, to read the Bible. Actually she ran my index finger under the words while she read a passage from Ezekiel, warning the Jewish people of their sins. That was the beginning of my knowledge of what my elders meant when they talked about "no count" people. While living at Papa's Place, Mama wore o...

The following is an excerpt from the book, "Uncle Esom's Grist Mill". Ui.de Esom (1838-1910) operated a grist mill and a general store in the Pigg River Turner's Creek neighborhood of Western Franklin County during the 1800's and 1890's. The family consisted of Esom, his wife, Eliza Jones Sloan, sons, Tom, Dorman and Lee, and daughter's, Lillie and Laura. Esom was thrifty (some said he was stingy), but the fact that he provided well for his family and even indulged his children in their hobbies, would appear to contradict that notion. Tom took pictures of everyone in the neighborhood with his big box camera, which Esom bankrolled, and became a sort of Matthew Brady of the time. Some of pictures still remain and are priceless to members of the family. Dorman learned to play the banjo, clawhammer style, and was in demand at parties, dances and corn shuckings To tease his father he made up a song about the mill. Since the mill was sort of a social center and gathering place, sometimes ...

PAGE 18 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MAY, 1987 THE LUMBAGO MACHINE The Ford Model T was surely a magnificent machine. Henry Ford's dream introduced the mass production concept to American industry and literally put America on wheels. Up to the time of the model T, cars were a novelty plaything of the idle rich. When the Model T became available in 1908, it changed the mode of transportation for thousands of working people in this country. As a boy growing up in Kentucky, I developed a close affinity for the Model T. Even though, we never owned one, I gained extensive knowledge of its versatility from our neighbor, Mr. Herschel Mayberry. Herschel ran a blacksmith shop in our town where he shoed horses, ground plow points, repaired farm machinery, and did general fix it work. Herschel was also the town miller. This is where the Model T played an integral part in his work. If you needed a bushel of corn ground into meal, he would simply jack up the tin lizzy, remove the back wheel and attach a belt...

THE HOME FRONT, 1918 For most Americans the summer of 1918 was not a happy time. Near the French-German border, the Hindenburg line still held. General Lundendorff, leader of the enemy high command, had been unable to convince. Kaiser Wilhelm II that the war was already lost as young men from both sides fell like grain before the sickle. In Mayberry and Meadows of Dan, Va. sadness and the fear of bad news, undoubtedly, was reflected in the faces of the folks at home. Already, Ruffin Lynch, Edwin Pendleton, and "Little Frank" Spangler had been slain in battle. Cecil Wood lay wounded in a hospital somewhere in France. Alvin and Justin Barnard, Elroy and Posey Shelor; Major Boyd, Emmet Howell, Carl Spence, Lewis Vipperman and others were fighting somewhere in France or Germany. There was hardly a family who didn't have sons preparing to go: Guy Barnard, Burton and Forrest Scott; Lawrence Cox; Allen and Coy Yeatts' classification numbers were up or soon to come.
