Little Cowan Church seeking Association meeting


We are having some beautiful weather. It is hard to believe our summer season has passed. As you get older they seem to go by faster. I guess many are enjoying the fruits from their labor. Many of us don’t have a garden anymore, but we are still blessed in many ways.

We had a good service at the Little Cowan Church on Sunday. Several are planning to attend the Association in Tennessee this week. We are also going to ask for the Association to be at Little Cowan Primitive Baptist Church next year. Hopefully it will come our way. We have been going other places a long time.

Get well wishes are sent to Mr. Chester Rayburn, who hasn’t been feeling well. Hope he will get better soon.

Several members of the Dicy Halcomb family came in this past week to help with the molasses stir-off. I was hope our niece, Barbara Halcomb, and husband Joe of Ohio, would come by while they were here. Also, Frieda if she came in. We have missed their visit this year. They usually come in for Memorial Day.

There was a good turnout for the Mountain Heritage Festival last week. I missed a lot of people that I used to see while I was there. Seeing friends was a big part of my enjoyment when I went to the festival. The weather was really nice, which was a big help. I am sorry I missed the parade this year.

We have had nice fall weather and our trees are still pretty and green.

Marsha Banks has had a hard time getting over the shingles. Hope she will get better soon.

Best wishes to all the sick and shut-ins.

I enjoyed a nice call from our nephew, Charles Pitts Jr. in Tennessee, last week. We have been missing their visits this summer. His son, Eddie, and family live in Oklahoma and we have missed them also and others that used to come. Many of their parents have passed away and they don’t come like they did. I am sure they miss their visits also.

J.T. and Carol Caudill spent part of the summer at their place in Tennessee. It’s nice but also work to keep up two places.

I was sorry to hear that Harlan Thomas had died. He grew up here on Little Cowan, but he had lived away for many years. Our sympathy to all his family and all the others families who have lost loved ones.

Our neighbor, Brandy Sexton, enjoys coming home on weekends after spending the week at Alice Lloyd College. I am sure there are others also.

The Letcher Heritage News, published by the Letcher County Historical and Genealogical Society, is a nice issue for the fall 2007.

I have about run out of time for news. Hope everyone has a nice week. Love and best wishes to all.
