PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JANUARY, 1986 SUMMER AT PINEY RIDGE © COPYRIGHT 1986 I was absolutely enchanted with the idea of spending the summer in the famous Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Our family doctor had ordered this to help me recuperate from rheumatic fever and my mother from pneumonia. My brother Charles was furious. He disliked change as much as my mother, while I, like my Irish father was always anxious to see what lay around the next bend in the road. Father had already arranged to have a favorite nephew and his young wife to move into our house. He would operate our mill and she would assist my older sister with all the summer canning and preserving. Father had rented a small corn and feed mill and a fully furnished cabin, right in the very heart of the mountains. He only gave mother one day's notice to prevent her from worrying over packing. "We will travel light. Take only one Sunday outfit, outing sleeping garments and sweaters, for the nights are real chilly," he o...

SUMMER AT PINEY RIDGE Continued from page 14. down the road a little piece. I raise all my eatings. I got hogs, chickens, geese and a cow. I gotta garden. I raise beets and pick gin-sing and sell it. That pays for the few clothes I need." "I love your pretty dress and bonnet," I put in. "I wish that I had one just like it." "Laws, Honey. I'll run you one up in no time a tall. They are made out of feed-sacks." "Does your family live around here too?" My mother asked. "I ain't got nobody but my poor foolish sister that lives way off over yonder in Lonesome Cove. Mind you, she had good sense till she married that Old Puke Harvey Lester." "Old Puke, that's a good one," Charles grinned for the first time in three days. "How did he make her lose her senses?" I curiously inquired. "The sorry ole devil halfstarved her, and beat her. He beat her when she was in the family way and both her poor boys are strange." "Strange how?" Charles asked. He had forgotten his sulks and was completely fasc...

The haunting sweet sounds brought my parents to the door. "Johnnie, that is perfectly beautiful!" my mother exclaimed. "Where did you learn to play like that?" "I dunno," he grinned shyly. "That's a fine harp," Father remarked examining it. "Miss Lou Ella give it to me." "What is that song? I love it!" I put in. "Shenandoah." Again he looked at me with that blue-eyed smile. "Sing it, and let Father play it," I ordered him. His voice was even sweeter than the harp. I felt an odd desire to weep. (After fifty years the same feeling comes over me each time that I hear it.) Johnnie became our constant friend and spent every day with us. Miss Lou Ella became Mother's. I once heard her discussing Johnnie with her, and I shamelessly listened. "His Mammy died when he was born. That old puke of a husband just took off. Nobody...

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 new in Missouri, hoping to homestead there. A special thanks to the Cooley family for sharing this journal with us.

PAGE 18 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JANUARY, 1986 HUMILITY Can you laugh at yourself? I can. I learned to enjoy a good laugh at myself at an early age and it has helped me in many ways all through my life. I am ready to laugh when the joke is on me, but look out, when it comes my turn to return the favor. I'm a game player and I believe in having my innings too. The first real inner satisfying, tension relieving laugh that I had about something that happened to me when I was thirteen years old is still fresh in my mind today. Up to that time I had a short temper that would explode like a nickel firecracker if someone played a prank on me. Let me set the scenario for you and them I'll tell you what happened. I was working for a roofing repair company in 1938 when this happened. I was man size when I was thirteen years old and I was tending a hot tar boiler when we were repairing the roof of a two story bank building in Basic, Virginia. Basic, Virginia? Where in the world is that, you ask? Okay, ...

DEAR READERS, Most of you already know how The Mountain Laurel was started. It was a dream on a shoestring, brought to reality by your support, to preserve the rapidly vanishing memories of bygone Blue Ridge days. Now, we want to share some wonderful news with you. The Mountain Laurel has acquired a piece of land that will someday become our home. A place to build our office and dreams on. And, as always, we want to share it and our happiness with you. A more perfect setting just couldn't have been found. It consists of almost 10 acres and there are gently flowing streams, rhododendrons so large that you can walk under the shelter of their entwined branches, and carpets of running cedar. There are tall trees with squirrel nest tucked in the forks of high limbs. There is an old roadway and a most prominent path that winds along a stream. It once was the path that led to Green Cockram's house where the old Meadows of Dan switchboard was located. It was the path that led to Preacher Wi...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JANUARY, 1986 JOHN HAYES HOLLOW Did you ever pick peas in a Spanish needle patch? If you haven't picked peas in a Spanish needle patch wearing cotton stockings, flour sack bloomers and a feed sack petty-frock, then you haven't lived. When I was growing up, girls didn't wear boys clothes, and there were no long (or short) pants made for girls. We never went to work or play in the sun without a hat on our head and a long sleeve dress shirt. Men did not go without a shirt no matter how hot the weather. Both men and women took much better care of their skin than they do today, even though many of us had to use homemade lye soap to bath with in those days. Wading into briar patches to pick blackberries and picking peas in the fall are two jobs I can recall that would have been much easier if we could have worn overalls or blue jeans, but not even old married women would dare put on a pair of their husband's overalls no matter what the job they were doing, even if ...

This 4,570 acre park is named for the lucky fairystones found near the southern tip of its boundary, near Route 57. Legend has it that many hundreds of years before Chief Powhatan's reign, fairies were dancing around a spring of water, playing with maids and wood nymphs, when an elfin messenger arrived from a city far away. He brought news of the death of Christ. When these creatures of the forest heard the story of the crucifixion, they wept. And their tears crystalized to form beautiful crosses. When the fairies disappeared from the enchanted place, the ground about the spring and the adjacent valley was strewn with these mementos of the event. For many years, people held these litle crosses in superstitious awe, fi...

FEBRUARY 1986 Monthly Journal of Mountain Life JOHN AND PATTY HYLTON—MY GREAT-GRANDPARENTS All my life I have heard people in my community speak of my great-grandparents on my dad's side, and their goodness. They were true pioneers according to family members who remember them. I have gathered vast information from my Granny Dollie and Dad, along with information from a great-granddaughter, Mrs. Clarice Belcher. One wintery day in December, Clarice and I got our heads together and had a good time reminiscing about her memories of our great-grandparents. Although I never got to meet them, I'm certainly proud they are my ancestors. John Cruise Hylton was born in Patrick County, Virginia, January 13, 1846. Martha Elizabeth Hall Hylton also was born in Patrick, on April 11, 1840. John's parents were Moses and Elizabeth Cruise Hlton. Martha Elizabeth, fondly called "Patty" by all, was the daughter of William Hardin (Bucky) Hall and Celia" Harris Hall. Great grandpa and grandma were marri...

PAGE 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL FEBRUARY, 1986 HOW I SURVIVED THE DEPRESSION By: Royce Q. Holland Having no father in the 30's (the worst of the Great Depression), I traveled to southwest Texas where I worked on the Angora goat farms. This was from the time when I was a kid of 14 years old and up through my teens. Being small for my age, I could not hold a man's place at the heaviest work such as bucking hay bales, bull-dogging grown cattle, etc. This put me on the road. Now for some unbelievable methods I discovered of obtaining enough protein to sustain the animal body. The bakeries sold what they called "day-old" bread, cakes and I especially remember the glazed doughnuts. It was a merchant's fallacy. They were a week or a month old if a day, but still they were very consumable. I think one measures somethings "good" quality by "how hungry are you?" Did you know that you can strip wild oats from the roadside, boil the chaf in a tomato can, strain it through burlap and have a milky type ve...

JOHN AND PATTY HYLTON Continued from page 1. My dad always said, "Grandma Patty was such a great lady and one of the greatest cooks ever, she could cook vegetables and bread like no one else." Great Grandpa loved the "soup" from beans and boiled cabbage and Grandma Patty always had a steaming mug beside his plate. Dad had a favorite drink that Grandpa and Grandma made. They dried apple peelings, then put some in a cup, poured boiling water on and let steep awhile. Dad said this was delicious. Great Grandpa and Grandma Hylton were true pioneers and carved a living from the land. They dug holes in the mountain side and planted corn. Besides raising their family, they took in two grandchildren and an older relative. They were never too busy to help a neighbor. I'm proud that John Cruise and Patty Hylton were my great grandparents. Now Clarice Belcher relates her childhood memories of these spirited individuals: Both Grandma and Grandpa were short in stature. Their hair never did turn c...

His father was Lewis Kneisley and his mother, Catherine Anderson. In his early teens he worked as a general helper and clerk at the Bernadotte Schmitt Pharmacy in his home town. Later, in his twenties he was given the Certificate of Pharmacy, having learned and acquired the training necessary in those days. Pharmacy schools had not been started in Vir ginia as yet. The Woodstock pharmacy was owned and managed by Bernadotte Schmitt and his son N.B. Schmitt. When B. Schmitt was partially retired his son took over the reins. Mr. N.B. Schmitt also started the Strasburg Pharmacy and named Charles Kneisley the manager. Before that time Strasburg had no pharmacy as such.
