"Mom" She was born right after the turn of the century and raised on a farm. Her "schooling" ended with the fourth grade when she was twelve years old. Those days spent in a one room school still bring a smile to her wrinkled face as, she recalls them. They were days of fun, spent listening to stories of far away places and learning the three "R'sV Those days were over too soon but you'll never hear her say they were. By the time she was thirteen, she was working twelve hours a day in a factory and her spare time, except for Sunday's was spent working on the farm. She was born the fourth of seven daughters to Irish and Dutch parents. They were hard working farmers and the values they instilled about God and right and wrong are still with her today. The changes she has witnessed, over more than three-quarters of a century, have not been easy for her to accept and many of them, she never will. She was married at eighteen and by the time of the "Great Depression" had two small daughter...

Do You Remember? The "flybush" made of crumpled strips of Sears catalog? The "broomstraw broom", homemade "lye soap", cleaning and filling the "kerosene lamps". "Crackling bread" baking in an iron skillet on the hearth. Racing to the cupboard after school for a cold baked sweet tater or pickled pigs feet. These recollections were sent in by Mrs. Hazel Hedrick who also adds, "I was born and reared in a place called "The John Hayes Holler" in the mountains of North Carolina, 63 years ago. This sample copy of the Mountain Laurel has brought back many memories of a happy, healthy childhood. Keep up the good work and find my check enclosed for myself one year and my brother, one year subscription. Congratulations to the Editor and the writters. The stories and descriptions are so real and true to life. We went right there with them. You can't believe how welcome and refreshing this Mountain Laurel is to a world filled with fear and sadness. God bless you all." Dear Mrs. Hedrick, Thank yo...

"In the past, when mountain folk gathered, whether at a barn raising or a corn husking, music always had a place. The straightforward style and clarity of mountain music perhaps reflects the character of the American spirit more than any other dorm of music. It was the crisp, clear notes of mountain music that rang through the hollows and ridges of the Blue Ridge, bringing relaxation and recreation to the lives of the hardworking mountain people and provided the focal point for mountain social gatherings." The Blue Ridge mountains are rich in music and musicians. Every musician I interviewed got their interest, appreciation and musical instruction from their families. They, in turn, are passing this musical heritage on to their children. These people have a real understanding of music in the truest definition of the word. Many make the very instruments they play. Some, like Buddy Pendleton, enter contests and usually win. He is an acknowledged World Champion Fiddler. Others may only...

Crafts There are many people in Floyd, Patrick and Carroll Counties who "make music". Many of than make more than music, they make the very instruments they play. Some are professional craftsmen who do this as a trade but the ones interviewed here are ones who do this mainly for a hobby but occasionally sell their instruments. One, Billy Weeks, from Willis Virginia is interesting to me because he makes fiddles but does not know how to play them. Let's meet him first. I was told of Billy Weeks by Carlton Harmon, one of the musicians interviewed this month. Mr. Weeks makes the fiddles and carries them to Mr. Harmon to test than, to see how they sound. My curiosity got the better of me and I called him to see just why someone who doesn't play an instrument would want to make them. Mr. Weeks said that so far, he has made three fiddles and that he loves to hear than played but he is a mechani c by trade and his fingers aren't nimble enough to "work right". He said Lane Via helped him mak...

MOUNTAIN MEMORIES IBdHHIR' HT' ** ' |^K »V>.-- r - 111111 # Jli i Mrs. Ella Boyd, leaving home in 1918 heading to nursing school in Nebraska. Mrs. Ella Hughes Boyd was born in 1897 in a sod house in Naper, Nebraska. Her parents had moved there in 1&80 from lowa in a covered wagon. She remembers that sod house of her childhood and can tell you today how to construct one. "The plains in Nebraska were covered with buffalo grass. It has a thick root system and they would plow long strips side by side, the width for building blocks and then just cut between those strips for squares and lift them out. These were stacked to make the house, roof and all. Lots of times the grass would still grow on the outside of the house and it would be green. Inside the house, we would white wash the walls. It was a warm house." On those praries, the worst thing to fear was fires. With the big open praries, there was nothing to stop them. "My earliest memory is of seeing a fire in t...

Page 24 May, 1983 MOUNTAIN LAUREL BACKROADS 3 "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 pollution. There's a part of our heritage on our backroads that no pen or camera will ever capture. There are cows wading in a creek, sharing a "deep hole" with native trout. You may have to stop occasionally to let a mother grouse herd her little ones across the road or a deer might stop grazing in a roadside meadow long enough to watch you go by. The old timer you'll pass will throw up his hand and if you've got time, he' 11 stop and talk ' a spell 1 . You'll not get anywhere in a hurry on a backroad but only the future's in a h...

Page 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1983 John Wheeler Helms This is a tribute to a father. John Wheeler Helms was bom in 1898. At the age of 19, he married 20 year old Dolly Susan Radford. They started a family. By the time he was 34 and she was 35, they had 13 children. She died giving birth to the last two, who were twins. Upon her death, many friends, neighbors and kinfolks offered to take the children to raise but it would split then up into different homes. John Wheeler wouldn't hear of it. He said, "No! They're rrry kids and they won't be split up." So, at 34 years old and with 13 children (three less than 16 months old), he became both father and mother to his family. His oldest child was 16 years old. Lillie Agnew of Patrick Springs, Virginia, was his middle child. There were six older and six younger than her. She was nine when her mother died. She recalls that her father, if he ever dated another woman after her mother died, she never knew it. "He likes his toddy but he kept his ...
