This week was turkey season m Gilmer County. Turkey hunting was son Mike's favorite hunting season. Had he been living, he would have been home. and he always got a tur- key. On Sunday, April 26, our woods were mostly brown, and two days later, enough leaves had come out to turn the woods a pale green. This is Friday and it is raining, but we have had some real hot summer days, and lots more of the leaves are out. Lots of wildflowers are blooming. I have seen squaw weed. trilliam, wild geranium and phlox. I have lovely blue iris and bleeding hearts blooming in my yard. Earl Stonestreet. who grew up on Triplett, but lives in Roottown. OH, was in for his sister Opal Stonestreet Smith's 90th birthday celebration in the new Braxton County, Senior Cen- ter last week. Opal lives in Gassaway, and she and Earl had sisters from West Virginia, Ohio, and Washington. DC, at the celebration. Happy 90th birth- day, Opal. Earl visited me and gave me this picture of Quincey and Katie Vanscoy, who were special friends of his when he was growing up, when we lived on Pistol Fork. Katie was the Progress postmaster. It was less than a mile from our house to the post office. A few years ago, Homer Duley built a new house where Quince (8-1 - 1879 - 2-26-1943) and Katie (1-26-1865 - 11-24-1939) lived. Earl said the pole in the background is a telephone pole. He remembered that the Vanscoy telephone was the only telephone he knew of. and lots of people went to the Vanskoys' to use their phone. I have letters from Odra Dobbins Dean, who remembered that she was nine years old when Jake and Rosa Dobbins (her parents) moved from Triplett to Crooked Fork in 1917. She remembered that Katie was the post- master. Odra was married in 1926 and left Crooked Fork. Odra remembered that Quincey and Katie lived in the mouth of the hollow, Quincey's brother, Council, lived up the hollow a short distance, and their father. Hanry, lived on top of the hill. Odra said this was the road people traveled when going from Upper Crooked Fork to Triplett. I was surprised that I had a family connecuon to the Vanscoy family. In my Charles Rogers history, I found that Council H Rogers was a son of John and Malinda Wilson Rogers. Council married Catherine Carr, and they had a daughter (Era sey or Emma), wt'e ofblerny Yan,3coy:, Stalnaker. This picture contained a lot of history. I found that Quincey Adam and Katie Vanscoy, Sullivan Issac and Drusilla Stalnaker. and Council H. and Catherine (Kyer) Rogers are all buried in the Mc Elwee Cemetery on Piper Fork of Crooked Fork. Sorry, Jane Stalnaker. I don't know where I pulled out the name Smith that I added to your name last week. Ermel Parsons told me that I made another .mistake: she said Uncle Oat and Florice's daughters were Zonie and Madge.
