"My dad worked hard in the coal mines to
give us kids the things we needed. He always
told us he didn’t want us to have to grow up
like he did. His dad went to prison and his
mother died when he was six years old and he
lived from house to house until he got big
enough lo work. He worked at a sawmill in Hur-
ley, Virginia when he was 15 years old. Mom
said Dad used to drink a lot and get put in jail
when they first got married, but getting drunk
never caused him to miss work.

his neck and chest burned bad, but all he got
out of it was $71.00 a day off from work.
"Dad likes to raise gardens, watch TV and sit
and talk about old times. Dad would raise a gar-
den and give the stuff away to anybody who
wanted or needed it. He always told us that was
why his garden did so good, because he helped
other people. Dad and Mom have 38 grandchil-
dren and 22 great-grandchildren. Submitted by:
