GROWING UP ON TOGGLES CREEK BY Y.K.W. © COPYRIGHT 1985 SUGAR BILL The perennial bachelor of our neighborhood was called "Little Will" (to distinguish him from "Big Will" of the same last name). He was more familiarly known as "Sugar Bill". Although he must have been close to 40 years old when I knew him, he preferred the company of the younger set and almost any gathering would find Sugar Bill in its midst. The girls liked to tease each other about him. A girl might be heard to say, in answer to the question, "Did you catch a feller today?" "No, I didn't catch no feller, but I did get a great big grin from Sugar Bill!"

PAGE 10 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1985 THE SHIRLEY TEMPLE CHRISTMAS DOLL By: Alice J. Kinder dr%. * <•» f" % iv € a*'/1 r. gT / < < : JT / I ;• *JP -f | ;{* Shirley Temple was the golden-haired idol of the 1930'5. More than anything else I'd ever longed for, I had yearned for a Shirley Temple doll. My dream was never fulfilled. I wanted the doll now as a Christmas present for my 7 year old sister. We didn't exchange family Christmas presents back in those Depression days in the mid-30s. There were few extra pennies to purchase anything other than the bare necessities. So we didn't buy beautiful luxuries or have a bright tinseled Christmas tree. Instead, we hung our black stockings by the mantel and were delighted on Christmas morning to find gold oranges, nuts, whitered peppermint sticks, and perhaps a sprinkling of covered chocolate drops. One snowy November day, however, while reading a magazine by the glowing fire, I daydreamed over the possibilit...

THE SHIRLEY TEMPLE CHRISTMAS DOLL Continued from page 10. "But how, Mama? How can we possibly make a Shirley Temple doll?" Her eyes shone in anticipation as they sometimes did when she was baking a yellow cake topped with egg white icing and looking forward to its beauty on the table. "I have some yellow yarn we could use for hair. And enough blue and white quilt scraps to make a twirling dancing dress," Mama planned ahead. After that I washed dishes, swept and dusted, churned the butter, and helped milk the cow for Mama so she wouldn't be too tired to work on the doll at night after Ruby went to bed. She worked every night and I helped do some sewing too. She made the body and stuffed it with rags. She worked carefully with small stitches, making the face. Despite her effort, though, she didn't succeed in get ting it to suit her. "No matter what, it still looks like a rag doll in the face with my design of stitching the eyes, the eyebrows, mouth, and nose," she despaired somewhat. ...

Till? 1 Xllli BLUE RIDGE DIGEST FROM THAILAND TO THE BLUE RIDGE Sompis Richardson is a newcomer to the Blue Ridge. She and her husband Jim recently purchased a piece of property in the Willis, Virginia community. The property doesn't have a house on it, but it does have a very old log barn, and this barn is going to be the center of a lot of activity. Come spring, work will be started by the Richardsons to convert it into a unique craft shop. Sompis, whose nick-name is "Nit" is a remarkable person. You can name just about any craft and not only does she do it, but is very good at it. Nit was born in Thailand and has led an interesting life. She started to school at age 3 and was teaching school by the age of 18. Always an active person, she also had a job nights at a hotel. Nit enjoyed hotel management so well that she traveled to Europe to continue her education in it. From there, she got a job with an American based cruise ship line. For the next 4 years she would travel to Alaska...

GENEALOGY I am told that Heron Boyd who married Sally Cockram, daughter of Spencer Cockram, lived on Rt 58 near the Meadows of Dan School and the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance. This would have placed him in the neighborhood of the Concord Church (on road 750). One wonders if he were buried in that vicinity. So far there are no records or stones that show his resting place. Leahvanna Clifton was my great aunt. She was a teacher in the Meadows of Dan - Vesta area before her marriage. Sincerely, Nell C. Thompson Dear Mt. Laurel: If you will print this I will be grateful, as I would like for the lady that wrote me about the DeLancy Cemetary to write me again. I have lost her address.

Hairston School in Ridgeway, Virginia (Henry County). "Just A Mite Superstitious" If you take the ashes out on Friday, you will have bad luck by Sunday. Fingernails cut on Friday will grow to be crooked. Tell someone how your wart was removed, then it will grow back. If you drop a dish "rag", someone is coming hungry. When someone has died and their dogs begin to howl, turn the shoes of the dead upside down. The dog will stop the howling. A hat on the bed will bring bad luck to everyone in the house. Going out a different door from the one which you entered will surely bring you bad luck. Set shoes with the heels up beside the bed at night to prevent leg cramps. Never sweep trash outside after sundown, unless you want bad luck. If you are hit with a broom, this is a sign you're going to jail. Never wash your clot...

ELIZABETH'S JOURNAL 1842-1848 The following is an excerpt from a journal kept by Elizabeth Cooley McClure of Carroll County, Virginia from 1842 (she was 17 then) til her death in 1848. At this point in the story, she is married. She and her husband have traveled to Texas to start their life together only to find "the situation with war untolerable". They back-tracked up the Mississippi River and are now in Missouri, hoping to homestead there. A special thanks to the Cooley family for sharing this journal with us.

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1985 CHRISTMAS MEMORIES OF MOUNTAIN VIEW SCHOOL By: Ivalien Belcher Hylton mmmn . Some o£ my "orphan" dolls. My favorite time of year has arrived. December is always a special month, beginning with the arrival of the beautiful Star of Bethlehem. I love keeping my Christmas as old fashion as possible and enjoying the old traditions here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The other day I was thinking back over childhood days. Somehow, I kept going back to the Old Mountain View School and the night we had the Christmas tree and program. Before I started school, Mom and Dad took me there and Santa Claus gave me my first doll at Mountain View that night. Oh! It was so pretty, with its pink organdy dress and slip. I'll never forget going up when my name was called and getting a package from Santa. I was four years old and this was the first present I had received from the real Santa in person. After I started school at Mountain View, the Christmas tree and prog...

He grew up in Patrick County, Virginia, but lives in Eden, North Carolina now. He came by and brought us a picture of himself taken in 1837. As he handed over the picture, he laughed and said it was a picture of his "wheels" in those days. As you can see in the photograph accompanying this story, the "wheels" were wagon wheels and the "engine" was a hay eater.

"Tobacco With A Twist" Editor's Note... In an age of mechanization, among the many industries to mechanize was the tobacco industry. As a child, I worked for 50<t an hour as a "hander". My mother got 75£ an hour for the skill of "stringing", from a nearby tobacco farmer. Our jobs began at daylight when the first horse drawn homemade sleds full of tobacco leaves came in from the fields. The hander gathered about 4 leaves together with the stem ends even and "handed" them to the stringer. The stringer placed a square tobacco stick (about 1" in diameter and 4 1 long) in a saw horse sort of contraption with a tin can attached to hold a ball of twine. Every stick had a cut in each end to hook the twine in. Then, the hands of tobacco were wrapped with the twine and thrown on alternate sides of the stick. A good stringer could do a stick so fast you could hardly see what was happening. It would take two or three handers to keep up with one stringer. Afterwards, the full sticks o...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL DECEMBER, 1985 I have done a lot of research in genealogy in my lifetime, but my research on the Martin family has been limited. My great-grandfather was D. Richard Martin. He was born in Virginia and served in the Confederate army. I have been told that his father was Marshall Martin, but it has never been confirmed. These things have been passed down to me by my grandmother, Mary Martin who was the daughter of Richard Martin. She was the mother of my father, John Benny Thomas, who was born in Virginia, but moved at an early age to West Virginia. Richard Martin was taken prisoner by the Yankees and was a prisoner of war at Moundsville, West Virginia. He was released and returned home in Virginia. Mary Elizabeth Martin was 12 years old at the time of the Civil War and she used to tell me stories about how hard it was on them during the war. They didn't have pins or needles and never could make a cake. She told that she often pinned tears and rips in her cloth...
