"Sarah Bailey Blankenship had a son called Lewis Blankenship and he had a daughter named Sarah Blankenship who is my husband's grandmother, Sarah Blankenship Hager. Grandma Hager lived up Lickbranch Hollow with her husband Ed Hager and for a number of years after he died. Her hair was curly and a pretty white color. She always wore scarf on her head around home and house slippers. The only time I ever saw her without the scarf was on an "occasion" that required a little dressing up. That's the way I remember her. Oh, I almost forgot. Shortly after Roy and I were married we went to visit and like most older people she started asking who are your parents and then figured out who the grandparents were concluding with "I think your grandpa Bailey are first cousins." Leaving me thinking that I had just gone and proven that old disparaging remark that West Virginians marry their cousins.
"Most old people did that when they met someone. They try to establish who your family is and "where you come from". Of course people in her generation probably never moved more than within a 50 mile radius from where they were born so it stands to reason that if you toss a rock chances are you'll hit a relative of some kind. But I guess we're all cousins to some degree anyway.

"...According to 1940 census it goes in order like this:
Ernest Arland (listed as Arland) 16 (Daddy to me)
John 14
Lorine (or Lorene) 12
(Mohawk) listed as Edward 10
Fred 8
Frank 6
Magdalene 3

"Not included on 1940 census are
Iona (who still lives down on Longpole - I think)
Dave ( the baby)
"Iona and Dave were more nearly my age. We used to play together. As a very small child Iona once talked me into sitting inside a tire while she rolled me down the road. That was okay but she got it into her head to push me into the creek. Actually now that I think about it I guess it could be called a small stream. I lost my enthusiasm instantly and started screaming as soon as we approached the water. She turned loose of the tire and over I went into hardly enough water to get me damp. Scared me spitless. She has probably forgotten about it but I have not. (I'd kind of like to pay her back but I don't think I could find a tire big enough. Even if I could, I probably wouldn't be able to push a tire that big. So there, Ony!).."
