THE LONG WAY HOME HISTORIC OUTDOOR DRAMA In the summer of 1755, a young pioneer mother by the name of Mary Draper Ingles was captured by a band of Shawnee Indians and taken back with them to their village in what is now the state of Ohio. She managed to escape and walked SSO miles, folowing rivers, all the way home, months of a torturous journey. But, she made it - through freezing water, snow - and, was at the point of starvation when she arrived. From June 20 to September 1, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at 8:30 pm, you can watch the recreation of this incredible true story in the outdoor historical drama, THE LONG WAY HOME at Radford, Virginia.

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1985 On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I drove up to the peaceful little community of Mine Creek in Carroll County to visit with a nice gentleman by the name of Moody. Yes, that's his real name. I have known Moody Dalton over four years and have always been amazed at his boundless energy. Upon my arrival, Moody came in from the field and invited me into his home. Sitting at the table in an old fashioned kitchen, the following is what Moody Dalton related to me on that Sunday afternoon. "I was born February 27, 1913 in the Mine Creek Community. My father was George Washington Dalton and my mother was Fair Ellender. (Isn't the name Fair Ellender pretty?) There were six children in the family. I always called my daddy, "Poppa". By trade, Poppa was a farmer and carpenter. He built houses, barns, and any other buildings people might need. On the farm wheat and corn were grown along with a big garden. Every year we would grow a couple "cribs of corn". There wa...

MOODY DALTON Continued from page 16. In 1941 I went to Dublin. Later I was transferred to Radford doing carpenter work learned from my father. Then I bought a farm and ten milk cows so I could sell milk. My oldest son was helping take care of the cows. The milking was all done by hand. Guess I didn't have enough to do, so I just went out and bought myself a sawmill. Now we were working from daylight to dark. That still wasn't enough, so in 1944 I bought my first two ton truck and begin hauling produce ouut of the South to the West Virginia coal fields. Mostly I hauled produce like watermelons, cantlopes, tomatoes, bananas and eggs. Later I added a pickup truck and did the produce bit for six years. I continued with the sawmill and cows until about 12 years ago. Then I sold the farm that the cows were on and came down to 20 acres. That's where I'm living now. Let's see, there's something I forgot about the taxes on my first three acres of land. They were only 75#. Can you beat that? ...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1985 ENTERTAINING THE PREACHERS By: Larry Andrews Mountain people are unique. They are the same wherever they live, and unlike people who live in the flatlands. Now you take city folks and suddenly transplant them into the mountains, or even low lying hills between the mountains and the plains, and unless they are quickly accepted by their neighbors, they would starve to death. Only mountain people know what real vittles are like. They and their forebears have always had to scrabble for a living. Family fare mostly is very simple. About the only store bought food is limited to condiments, such as salt, pepper, baking soda and powder and maybe cane sugar. I said "maybe" deliberately, because cane sugar cannot be compared favorably with home made maple sugar. Breakfast consists of ham, or bacon, and eggs, pan gravy, homemade bread, or pancakes, milk for the youngsters and coffee from the big pot that is rarely dry. Coffee being the only other store bought...

HISTORY OF A MOUNTAIN CHURCH Concord Primitive Baptist Church was established somewhere around 1535-1340 in a log house across the road from where the present day Concord Church is located. At first, the Missionary Baptist in this area went there, having no church building of their own. This was around 1845-Isso when the Langhornes, Harrells, Rutledges, Chaplins and others moved into the community. They had attended a missionary church where they had moved from, and the closest one to them here was Scycmore, at Buffalo Ridge, some eight or nine miles away. They attended it some, but as horse back and buggies were the only means of travel in those days, it was a long way to go. In April, 1855 i when they thought there were enough of the Missionary Baptist faith to have their own church, an arm of the Sycamore Baptist Church came to Meadows of Dan to organize it. Steptoe Langhorne had been teaching Sunday School in his home for some time before this. The Meadows of Dan Baptist Church ...

PAGE 22 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1985 "TAKE IT UP CLEAN AS YE GO" I have to say that when I finally figured out what was happening to my Granddaddy's way of talking, I got kind of mad. In some ways I'm still mad. You get a hillbilly good and riled up, he's liable to stay that way. And then again he might not - depending. Of course, my father was a lawyer in Galax and he had to talk so that everbody he had business with could understand him - judge, jury, rich poor, white, black, town, country. But Granddaddy came straight down off the mountain from Fishers Peak and never changed his way of talking a lick. It was his "dialect" I liked best of all, and I lernt to speak it as a child, and I lernt it right. I like to think I already knew how to speak two languages even then. When I was at Chaper Hill, I hitch-hiked back to Galax on the weekends, and if I talked to Granddaddy the way I was supposed to talk at some too-fancy college, he wouldn't have understood a blessed word I said. You'd h...

A CIVIL WAR STORY My great grandfather, James Morris came from the Blue Ridge mountains about the middle of the Civil War (1861-1865). He, along with a number of young men of the Southern Army, while along the borderline between Rockingham and Hardy Counties (now West Virginia), decided they had had enough of the War. They deserted and came over to what is now Grant County, Jordan Run, West Virginia. These young men went to a couple of different homes. It was in the middle of winter, a bitter cold evening with snow on the ground. The most of them came to the home of my great-g-g-grandfather Michael Goldizen (1795-1878), where they asked for something to eat. They were cold, hungry and their clothes were torn to bits. They said that they had endured such hardships and wanted to get away from it all if they had to go to Canada. Michael Goldizen consented for them to stay all night, if they promised to leave before daybreak. A while after they had bedded down for the night there came a...

PAGE 24 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JUNE, 1985 "TAKE IT UP CLEAN" Continued from page 22. hear a whole lot of really bad words about how one bunch of people's way of government, or economics, or way of life, is so much better than everybody else's. Or about how one bunch of people are so downright "superior" they have the "right" to move in on some other people and eat 'um up alive. I also have a very fine Blue Ridge word, that also begins with b and ends with t, to summarize my opinion of all these fancy bad words around the world, but there's no need for me to write it down here, so I'll save it for the right occasion (there's bound to be one!) Near the end of my too-fancy education, I was staying at Granddaddy's house out at Fairview (there was always a bed ready for me) when one evenin' troy ' llowed as how the fire in the fireplace could use a mite of coal on it. I was 20 years old and I immediately got up to fetch it. That' s how it was with Troy Goodson: whenever he 'llowed as how someth...
