THE BLUE RIDGE DIGEST A REMEMBRANCE OF PATRICK COUNTY I'm sitting here on this fairly eventful day, the day of the space shuttle Challenger's violent explosion, and I'm thinking about that, and, though the two have nothing whatsoever in common, I'm also thinking of Patrick Springs, Virginia and of a plane that crashed on a mountain near there sometime in the mid-1940'5. Are there any of you down there who remember it? The mountain was quite close, no more than an hour's hike away, I believe, and at its base was a large apple orchard (Bowman's Orchard's it might have been). It's hard to recall many particulars (the memory suffers in forty years), whether the craft was military or commercial, or how many people were killed, but it was a fair-sized plane. And it hit right at the top of the mountain, narrowly missing a fire lookout tower, and the wreckage was in burned and twisted pieces and scattered far down the side of the mountain. The plane came down one night, and my grandmother (...

GENEALOGY My mother was Louisa Etta (Marshall) Poore, daughter of William Jefferson and Cary Ann (Mabry) Marshall. The family lived near Laurel Fork in Carroll County and she was the youngest of their 6 children, born April 15, 1899- She died in Mt. Airy, NC in 1939. Her 3 sisters were Belle, Cora and Susan. Etta and Cora attended Normal School (I believe in Galax) and both taught school at least two to four terms I'd sure like to find out more about that Normal School and any schools they, especially Etta, taught at. I have many old photographs that I would like for some one to help me identify the people in. All of the photos are from the Carroll Co. area and taken in the 19-teens. Judith U.

PAGE 14 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH, 1986 WILDWOOD FLOWER By: BonitaMurrahPhillips I downshifted to second gear in the early morning fog as I came around the last corner of Caney Fork. In order to reach the clutch and gas pedals I had to sit on the edge of the towel that covered the seat's stuffings and springs. The seat was permanently caught in a long-legged position just right for Billy Jo. He had told me last night there weren't no need for me to come, that Maggie wouldn't listen to me or anybody else for that matter. Four miles. That might not seem like a lot to townfolk, but four miles back in the Appalachians can be a good 30 minutes of bumps, steep grades, sharp curves and washouts where streams have found an easier course downhill. I had covered the first two miles before my swollen belly began to ache. Billy Jo had warned me I would be sore from all the bouncing I would get coming up here. As I climbed steadily up I felt the jeep leaking air like a sieve leaked water. The wind w...

"WILDWOOD FLOWER" Continued from page 14. "You 'specting again?" Maggie watched the steam rise from the pot's spout. "This'n will be the third, won't it?" "Fourth," I corrected. Maggie poured the coffee into the oversized mugs. "Maybell will be calving soon." she poured half of her coffee from the cup into a cream colored bowl. She cupped the bowl with all fingers firmly attached. I noticed brown age spots had nearly covered the wrinkled skin of her hands. Some of the splotches on her forearm appeared scaly. "I knowed why she done it." Maggie was talking about Maybell. "She's tired of these old hands pulling on her teats. She wants something to show for all that milk." Maggie tilted the steaming bowl of hot liquid to her lips. "You been busy, Maggie?" I was trying to think of some way to say what I'd come for. "Yep. Been cleaning up at the cemetery. Betty McMury died last week. Just keeled over and fell off the back porch." Maggie chuckled and her huge shoulders shook. "Pert near ki...

The United States had declared war against Mexico. A young Lt. Ash bid his family goodby and went to the far-off lands of Texas, the quest being to drive Santa Anna back across the Rio Grande.Lt. Ash served his country and returned home safely to his family in the Savannah Valley. Cain Elcana Ash was born in 1824, in Lincolnton County, North Carolina.

She spread her knees a tad and firmly planted the figure-eight instrument on them. "Play Wildwood Flower, he would say 'fore he dozed off." She strummed down with the pick on the three strings producing a twanging, mournful tune. With her left foot tapping slowly she bagan strumming and singing. Her voice was high-pitched with a nasal melancholy. It harmonized with the dulcimer and broke as only a country song will let it. "He taught me to love him and called me his flower, That was blooming to cheer him through life's weary hour, How I long to see him and regret the dark hour, He's gone and neglected his frail wildwood flower." Attending to her playing I recollected the story I'd heard about when Heber had given her this same dulcimer. He had sawed *0 t TUNE INTO74OAM FOR ENJOYABLE, AUTHENTIC COUNTR...

For over seventy years he has lived in this community. Listening to him talk is like traveling in a time machine backward to a simpler era. An era when "chestnut orchards" instead of restaurants and service stations covered the tiny mountain community of Meadows of Dan. As he described Meadows of Dan circa 1920, you almost could see how this area looked then. Highway 58 was not here then, neither was the Blue Ridge Parkway. "The road was the old 'Danville and Wytheville Turnpike' and it's still here, much like it's always been, a simple, little winding mountain road. (See BACKROADS COLLECTION NUMBER ONE, Backroad Number 1.) Only one of the buildings on "53" today was here then. It's the CRAFT HOUSE now, but then it was only a one story mountain home.

REMINISCENCE OF BYGONE DAYS By Elma S. Menetre In those days of the early nineteen hundreds, one dollar was the customary wage for a day's work. The dollar at that time bought a lot of what one needed. I was born and raised on a farm, so we did grow almost everything we did eat. Most women made thier own dresses and undergarments. Dry goods were sold by the bolt. Gingham was the common dress goods in those days. Most women of this era of time were good cooks and always had a tasty savory meal ready at meal time every day of the year. Seems they took plenty of time to cook and no matter what kind of dish, be it stew, pastry cake or pie, it was delicious. Light bread was baked in an old kitchen range oven. The range did burn wood, but one could turn the grates over and then burn coal. This bread had a lot of nourishment. It was solid in content, not sprongy. My mother baked it about once each week. The old kitchen range stove had a warm oven to keep vituals warm. It also had a reservo...

PAGE 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL MARCH, 1986 TEXAS GOAT FARMS IN THE '3os. By: Royce Q. Holland Getting enough food was only one of the dogging problems facing a kid. Big problems beset a kid on the road alone, especially if he weighed less than 120 lbs. Some "Kinghts of the Road" were very aggressive. Believe me, when some of the others saw one having fun teasing the Kid, they emerged, usually one by one, for each his share of the joke on the Kid. The Kid was in for a long hard trip. There was one way out. The Kid had to handle it, before the problem handled the Kid. Now in theory, there were two ways to handle the problem. One way was to out-run the aggressor. But if you were less than 120 lbs, your legs were not long enough to be a distance-runner. I decided too, that Texas was not wide enough for me to out-run some of the big monkies who chose me. Therefore, I evaluated what other talents I possessed. I had one talent which I reluctantly developed and I owe that to my older brother. He w...

THE GOAT FARMS Continued from page 20. When I am nervous I trot my knee. That is, I let my heal go up and down, tapping the floor. "Why are you patting you foot?" he asked. I told him I didn't know why, but I think it is because sometimes I try to play the fiddle and I think I just got the habit. He smiled and looked toward his wife. She laughed out loud. "Can't you let it be done, Gringo like the Mexican has?" he asked again. The Mexican showed happiness . I told him that I thought I could let it stop. He laid me on the floor and wrapped wide tape all around my rib cage. The Mexican took a comb the lady handed him with an order in Spanish. He commenced combing my hair. He combed out leaves, brush, twigs, dirt, sheep-dip and any amount of strange things out of my hair. My hair was very unruly and I had not been near a barber for six months. The Mexican was really happy. He tenderly combed and combed and tried to smoothe my hair down flat like theirs all the way back to the truck. He...

BACKROADS heading towards Woolwine, Virginia. This is a fairly rough road, but if you take your time and use low gear, you shouldn't have any problems. It's a beautiful drive and leads down Belcher Mountain to Woolwine. As we travel down Belcher Mountain, be sure to take your time and just ease along. You're apt to see deer, wild turkey and perhaps even a bobcat. 4.1 (0.4) On our left is a gated road which used to be the Brammer Spur Road. It led all the way down the mountain to Woolwine and was a heavily traveled wagon road many years ago. As we drive past the other end of it latter on, I'll point it out again. 5.2 (1.1) The views through this part of the roadway are beautiful.
