Around The Kitchen Table Get aldine M arks 462-7477 Thursday, June 18, 2{){)9 - ]'he Glenville Democrat / ~ ,, Page !3A Cedarville News JoAnnWoodyard462_7093 See you at Folk Festival! S0nya, Tena, Leona, Elisabeth, and I enjoyed the trip to Blennerhassett Island that we took with some of the other seniors. We had two vanloads. and the day's outing was a great time. We appreciated the Senior Center packing us a sack lunch. Connie Boggs really appreciates all the visits and cards fiom some of the churches and her many fi'iends. She says, "Keep it up!" along with prayers for her and all others who are sick or shut-in. The Rosedale School Reunion was Saturday at Cedar Creek State Park. There was good attendance and a de- licious meal. We also bad a fun auc- tion, and we made enough money to take care of next year's reunion. If you weren't there, you missed a good time visiting, especially with Lena Barton, who will be 102 years young soon, and others we haven't seen for ages. Our Bailey Family reunion will be coming up on July 5 at Cedar Creek State Park. We need to remember all the troops in our prayers. My 4-H Club will be at the Folk Festival this Saturday, with apple butter, baked goodies, and cookbooks. Come out and support us; proceeds will be used to help send the 4-H'ers to 4-H camp next week. We will appre- ciate your support. I heard through the grapevine about Charley Gregory having a birthday soon. Happy Birthday wishes go out for his 65th! Tomorrow He was goi~:g to be all that a mortal should be - tomorrow: None would be kinder and braver than he - tomorrow; A friend who was troublcd and weary, he knew, Who'd be glad of a lift and who needed it, too, On him he would call and see what he could do - tomorrow; He thought of the folks he would fill with delight - tomorrow; But as time fled by, from day to day, He hadn't one minute to stop on his way. "More time 1 will have for others." he'd say - lOlllorrow; The greatest of workers this man would have been - tomorrow; The world would have known him, had he ever seen - tomorrow; But the fact is he died and faded from view, And all that was left when living was through Was a mountain of things he saicl he would do - tomorrow. (SEATED): JAMES JASPER STALNAKER AND WIFE, CLARA MAY SHAFER STALNAKER; (STANDING, L-R): GOLDIE ARLIE; VERA MAE; JAMES CHARLES "JIM"; OSYE EVELYN; DEWEY SULLIVAN, AND ELIHU SUTTON STALNAKER. Stalnaker Roots Run Deep This picture was given to me by Brent Stalnaker, a grandson of James Jasper and Clara and a son of Elihu and Arlene Deuley Stalnaker. I thought the picture might have been taken in the 1920s, because James Jasper died around 1929. Brent and Osye's daughter, Carol McCammon, has done a lot of research on this family and can trace their roots to Samuel Stalnaker, born before 1700. James Jasper was born in 1871 and died about 1929. His parents were early Crooked Fork settlers, Sullivan Isaac "Uncle Sully" and Drusilla Goff Frame Stalnaker. Does anyone have an obituary of James Jasper? His family would really appreciate hav- ing one. On June 12, 1889, James Jasper married Clara May Shaver (1869- 1951). Clara's parents were Willis Peterson and Sophie Jane (Moore) Shaver. Her parents also were early Crooked Fork settlers. James Jasper and Clara May were both raised in Braxton County, on Crooked Fork. James Jasper and Clara May's chil- dren were: 1 ) Vera May (1891 - 1945), married Edgar Hansford Burns; 2) Molly Pearl (1893-1909); 3) Goldie Arlie (1896-1987), mar- ried Joe Claude Burns; 4)Dewey Sullivan (1898-1966), married Floda Hashman; 5) James Charles "Jim" (1901, 1980), never married; 6) Osye Evelyn ( 1903-1974), mar- ried Christian "Harley" Gerwig; 7) Orin Stalnaker, born and died about 1904; 8) Elihu Sutton (1906-1975), mar- ried Arlene Deuley. Last week, Elihu's widow, Arlene Stalnaker, of Oberlin, OH, called me and told me that she will be 91 on her birthday. She said recently her son Brent's wife had a bad car wreck and spent a lot of time in the hospital. Arlene had surgery for a ruptured appendix, and her son, Brent, had a stroke. Everyone has recovered, and Arlene is able to mow her lawn now - quite an accomplishment for a 90- year-old. I forgot to ask her what quilt she is working on now. She said that Brent saves all of my columns and now has more than a thousand of them. WOW! The hummingbirds are finding lots of nectar in flowers, because of the wet weather, and not many are eating at the feeders. Daisies are blooming everywhere. Gardens are doing well, but it is really hard to find the ground dry enough to hoe. Putting up hay is impossible, since we have been hav- ing rain almost every day. This weekend, we plant to attend grandson Ross Mills' wedding in Win- chester, VA, Then on Tuesday, I have an appointment with Dr. Hatfield, in Charleston, for an Avastin shot for my macular deger, mation.
