Steve and Tom Dollarhide and Steve Boggs had a molasses stiroff at Bennett Combs’s last Saturday. Ramona and Callie Finchum of Louisville, Regina Crawford and son Robert Bennett, his friend Allison, and Regina’s daughter and granddaughter, Christina and Adlina Bolton of Berea, were all there.
The Dollarhide family also had many visiting with them and enjoying the stiroff .
Mary Helen Whitaker Combs, formerly of Letcher, died and was buried at Ostia, Ind., Sept. 29. She was the widow of Shade Combs Jr. and has four surviving sons and several grandchildren.
The Cowan Homemakers met at the Cowan Community Center with Frances Day as hostess. They were happy to have Ann Bradley visiting, and happy to welcome a new member, Carol Ann Ison.
There is a revival going on at the Little Cowan Church this week. Everyone is welcome.
The annual meeting of the Eastern District Association of Primitive Baptists was held at the Fairview Church in Bellbrook, Oh. The number attending was smaller this year, as some of the churches have left the association.
But the Spirit was there and we had a wonderful preaching, singing and fellowship. The business matters were handled smoothly and well. One young lady was saved.
Those attending from Little Cowan were Rex and Tilda Fields, Charlie and Glennis Little, Carol Caudill, Linda Lucas, and Doris Banks.
Also, Chester and Verna Rayburn of Cowan, but living now in Liberty, were there. We were glad they were able to come.
Russell and Minerva Yonts, Major and Ella Sparks, and Duane and Anna Yonts recently all traveled to Georgia. The annual fall fishing trip for the men was held on the Chestatee, where they camped for several days.
The ladies do the usual things — looking Dahlonega over, shopping and hanging out with Brooke, Brittany, Tracy, Jessica, Beth, Emma, Maggie Cohen and Collin.
The ladies, along with several young kids, joined the guys on Saturday night for the big fish fry. There were 21 people in all, the youngest child, Collin, being three weeks old.
The biggest fish was caught by Jeff Daniels, Duane and Anna’s son-inlaw. He gets to keep the cherished trophy until next year.
Everyone expressed having a good time being together again. We missed Donna and Amie.
This from Sue and Glenn Back: “We want to thank Judge/Executive Jim Ward and Hettie Adams for making our Middle Cowan reunion a big success. Thanks for the proclamation making it ‘Middle Cowan Day’.”
We had enough food to feed all for lunch and dinner.
Sue had gifts for the ones who came the farthest, Paul Flanary of Spokane, Wash., got a tacked quilt for that. The smallest baby got a quilted baby quilt. That was the granddaughter of the late Tom Day of Columbus, Ind.
The pretty lady got a large, handmade Christmas angel, Serena Day.
Those who attended were: Lorrane Stewart, Betty Trent, Paul Flanary, Kyle and Cindy Flanary, Charles and Shirley Day, Cassel and Opal Boggs, Rachel Pack, Sue Pack, Jerry Banks, Gay and Youla Caudill, Glenn and Evadean Webb, Bobby and Jewel Day, Darrell and Doris Caudill, Charles and Judy Kelly, Barry and Faye Adams, Emily Pack, Wanda Gordon, Ethen Duncan, Alexis Daniels, Hatler Pack, Yvonne and Dauphes Day, Matthew, Valerie, Cheyenne and Tommy Houpey, Sherril, Dorothy and Elizabeth Adams, Glenn Flanary, Michael and Leslie Adams, Mary Lynne Richardson, Ashley Elkins, Virginia Day, Glenn and Sue Banks, Hettie Adams, Amanda, Tyler and Kyle Galer, Edison, Pam, Nicole and Haley Banks, Faye and Johnny Campbell, Serena and Charlie Smith, Kim, Kenny and Shane Lakins, Violet Day, Bob Kelly, Mildred Ogg, and Leonard Boggs.
If I left anyone out, I’m so sorry.
There tales told up there, that all I can say is I’m sort of glad a lot of people are past and gone because it looks like I was the one in trouble.
We laughed, cried and ate until late in the evening. I’m sure there were people there who either forgot or had sickness in the family. You missed a very good day.
Our brother-in-law, Bob Gatton, is having a lot of health problems. Please keep him in prayer.
I had more fun than an old person should over this weekend. I overdid I suppose, but wouldn’t change a thing. Everyone wants to do this again, as I said before, “A few younger ones step up to the plate, please! I’m old, let me rest a couple of years.
Love you all.”
