BACKROAD tours always make a complete loop back to the point where we started. The underlined numbers at the beginning of each paragraph indicate the total number of miles we've traveled from our point of beginning. The numbers in parenthesis () indicate the distance from the last point of interest that we passed. o "Never take the main roads, they're the future with their stores, offices and service stations. Always travel the backroads. You can see the future tomorrow but backroads are the past and someday they may be gone. On backroads you can see old weathered barns with wagons and horse drawn hayrakes. There are meadows fenced with old chestnut rails and creeks that bubble and cascade over rocks that have never known polution. There's a part of our heritage on our backroads that no pe...

Everybody called him Newton. He was raised in the mountains near Green Mountain Church at a place called Turkey Nest Knob. In March, 1897, he married Sallie Agee. They lived with her parents for awhile. In January of 1900, they had a son named Albert. After awhile, they moved to the head waters of Howell' s Creek in Floyd County, Virginia. There Newton built and ran a small grist mill. He made a pond on Howell Creek so he could power the mill with a water wheel that he made. Newton ran the mill til about 1912, then moved to. Glace, West Virginia. He moved there in a wagon pulled by a yoke of oxen. He lived out there for about two years then moved back and bought a farm on Laurel Fork Creek near Meadows of Dan, Virginia.

Page 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL Years ago I came across a metal mark- er nailed to a tree in Busted Rock. It was barely readable, but close inspection revealed it to be a marker for the Appalachian Trail. Through the rust and in spite of a bullet hole, the words, "Appalachian Trail Maine To Georgia," could be read. I questioned Mr. Will Barnard, an elderly friend, about the sign and he informed me that the A.T. once came through here. As a matter of fact, at one time he helped to maintain the trail through this area. However, the Trail had been relocated far to the west many years before so that it would be on federally owned rather than private lands. In the years that followed, I pointed out the Trail marker to only those people I felt would not disturb it. For some reason, it seemed to represent something of tremendous importance to our area and I felt it should remain where it was rather than become a souvenir over someone's mantle. Over the years the Tra...

HOMECALL i A Dear Susan, Charlotte and Robert, Congratulations on the fine job of publishing 'The Mountain Laurel". Yours is the first "good news" newspaper that I have ever read very refreshing! Being a full-blooded Floyd Countian, I find many of the stories are so familiar to me - even if they are based on other areas of the mountain. We were a family of 10 with many of the same hardships and good tines pointed out by others. Nowadays we wuld have agencies trying to help us because we would be considered poor we didn't know that, we thought we were just "hard up". However, we were just like 99% of our neighbors. Back then we all worked hard, helped each other —if someone was sick all the neighbors came forward to help, sat with the sick, cried together, etc. Things have changed so much, it seems that everyone is just too busy to help even their families sometimes. Three years ago, after seeing older people being put into nursing homes, who with just a little assistance could remai...

Page 4 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 WALKING WITH SPRING I was following the Parkway now because it had taken over the Trail route. Flame azeleas were in full bloom along roadside, along with dogwood and many species of ground flowers. Visible to the east was Pilot Mountain, a massive pinnacle jutting from the Piedmont. By now I was weary of road walking-. Abruptly came an interuption. Veering eastward, the Trail came to a wild deep gorge. Jutting from the bottom of that steep walled canyon was a peak as pointed as a pyramid, its top reaching the level of the canyon walls. Did the trail actuallv cross that incredible peak? It did, descending through a sag, then up and- r -over the pinpoint summit, ilt was rock work pure and simple, with precipice oil either side. Yet Rhododendron grew crannies and was fragrant with their blooms. Any pack at all, much less the fourty pounds I was carrying, was a handicap and even a hazard. The view from topside was astounding, with the Dan River so clos...

Page 6 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 "MINNIE" COMPTON The Widow That Won't Give Up The year of 1936 was a year of change for the tiny mountain cormiunity of Tuggles Gap, Virginia, especially for William Ward Compton. This was the year that he met Minnalee Breeden on Groundhog Day and they were married in June. It was April of that year that he opened the small store on his farm in Tuggles Gap with hope and $75.00 worth of stock. It was also the year that Route 8 (between Stuart and Floyd, Virginia) which bordered his farm was being paved for the first time. Between the store and the farm, he and his new bride, "Minnie',' had their hands full. Ward worked the fields and Minnie did the canning, gardening, milking, housework and still managed to spend most of her time at the store. It was hard work for both of them but they pulled together and managed. Along about then, the state of Virginia was busy acquiring the right of way for a new road that would cross their property. A highway that...

Page 8 FOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 THE REAL THING BY JOHN HASSEL YEATTS It all began one exceptionally warm spring afternoon when the boy, returning from school, decided to look for sprouted chestnuts in the big orchard across from Mayberry Store. He wandered upon four men who were home from the mines and celebrating life and fresh air. All of them were wearing shiny black shoes, dark pants, held by wide colorful suspenders, striped shirts and fancy arm bands just above their elbows. One of them was drinking a clear liquid from a half gallon fruit jar, and the others were laughing and jabbering like an excited bunch of school boys. One called, "Come here boy," and handing him a shiny quarter said, "How about you going down to the store and getting us a couple of bottles of strawberry pop to put out the fire in this here jar. You can keep the change." Even though the lad didn't know what pop was, nor how much it cost, the prospect of receiving change inspired him into a fast trot towa...

THE REAL THING fence and into the woods. To his relief, upon dropping his knickers, he discovered that only one egg was broken, and that at 10 each he still had the price of a "dope". He placed the eggs in his visored cap and mopped and cleaned his leg and pants as best he could with some young and tender chestnut leaves. He arrived at the store with one wet and smeared sock, pieces of green leaves extending from the leg band of his knickers and some yellow yolk vi sable on his blue knickers. Furthermore he wore the expression of a drifter who had just been caught red-handed robbing the hen house. The merchant smiled with amusement and insight as he counted the eggs from the boy's cap and heard his, almost, whisper, "I wanta dope." Someone was calling for a poke of stud and some snuff, so the merchant handed the boy a room-temperature bottle and pointed to the opener attached to the counter. The lad had seen it done, but it was a new experience for him. He pulled and tugged, finally...

Page 10 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 MY FIRST SCHOOL By: Miss Addie Wood The first year I went to school was around 1908. The building was a two room school with an enrollment of about 60. It sat on a bank of the Danville and Wytheville Turnpike in Meadows of Dan, Virginia between where the white brick building and the red Craft House on highway 5$ are now. Two teachers taught from the first to the seventh grades. When it became too small to house the children, they moved the building up to where Parkway Car Care Center is now. The ground there was level with the Meadows of Dan Baptist Church then. Two roans were built on one end. The origional two roans were made into one roan, making three rooms in all. The photograph that was in the January issue of The Mountain Laurel was made by the side of the old school house showing the new one built on to it. Then the cornnunity out grew the three room school. The old building was sold to Elroy (Teet) Shelor. He was selling goods on the corne...

The steeple of this old church needs repair and they have been told the sad news that it will have to be replaced, not repaired.

I had called Dudley Williams for an interview and I was eager to get on with it, because I had been told he was a man of many skills. Dudley greeted me with a hearty laugh and said, "Ah, just come on in the back door. We use it most of the time." This suited me just fine and before I could say "scat", I was comfortablely seated and made to feel right at home. In this homey atmosphere, I gathered pages of notes about this man and I would like to share them with you. Here goes Dudley Williams father, J.P Williams was married three times and fathered 21 children in all. By his third wife, Tecoa, he had 16 children. This is the family Dudley grew up in.

MONROE'S MEMOIRS I want to tell you about a man I knew back some time ago. He is deceased now. His name was Robert, of whom we will call Bob. Now- as far as I know, Bob had never been out of Carroll County, Virginia but once in his life and that was in the edge of West Virginia for a few days. Bob was never married but he had a terrible crush on a lady by the name of Mabel. Mable was the wife of Bob's nephew, Jack. Jack has been dead for a long time. Let me point out that from his early life, Bob was troubled with asthma. At times he could not get his breath hardly at all. Now Bob never owned anything at all. He would stay with some of his sisters, taking turns. I could tell exactly when Mabel was coming for Bob would get his hair cut, shave, take a bath and put on clean clothes. Sure enough, in a little while Mabel would come. (She lived in Pulaski .) Everytime she came, Bob would have and attack of asthma and couldn't get his breath hardly for 2 or 3 weeks. I always thought it was...

Page 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1984 The Mail Box Dear Ms. Thigpen, About 6 weeks ago, my husband and I were riding through Bassett, Va. and I picked up a copy of The Mountain Laurel. I didn't get to read it for 3 or 4 days. My goodness, what a surprise. This is a terrific paper. Most "hometown" papers are full of gossip but your writers really have done some very interesting articles. I feel like I know "Uncle Wallace Hall", "Tomny Cockram" and many others just from the stories. I would really love to meet them. We are looking for a place to buy somewhere in the mountains. We are both from the coast of North Carolina but we have traveled all over the United States. We have seen most of the mountain ranges and the Canadian Rockies. There is none to compare with the Blue Ridge Mountains. In the spring and fall there is nothing so beautiful. Hopefully we will find a place soon so we can spend scane time there. Two really terrific ladies have spent many hours showing us around Henry, Pat...
