Ruby June Caudill is moving to Georgia


Seems like news time comes around pretty fast.

The trees are pretty and green and people are beginning to plant their gardens.

Several attended church at Little Cowan on Sunday.

We are sorry about the death of Mr. Coy Caudill, and extend our sympathy to all of his family, and to the other families whose loved ones have died.

The Pine Mountain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) met recently at Pine Mountain Grill. To become a member, you need a patriot who was in the American Revolution.

The DAR also met at The Courthouse Cafe Thursday, April 30, to honor one of our most cherished members, Ruby June Caudill.

We were saddened to see her sell her home and move to Georgia, but know she will be happy to be near her daughter and family. She will be surely missed by her many friends. Ruby is a daughter of the late G. Bennett Adams, a well known family of Letcher County.

Those present with Ruby June were Shirley Whitaker, Marsha Banks, Nina Craft, Elsie Banks, Virginia Brown, Linda Lucas, Marlene Day, Sally Caudill, and Mahala Frazier.

Seems like spring weather is a little on the cool side.

Mae Boggs, her sister, Millie Wright, a niece, Johnanna Lambert, and nephew Larry Miller all visited Mae’s 101-year-old brother, Hiram Hogg, in Bristol, Va., last week.

Hiram was surprised and pleased to see them, and knew all four of them even though he hadn’t seen the niece and nephew for several years. He still has a good mind and asked about all of his relatives. They had a good visit for three or four hours, and he hated to see them leave. They had dinner at Applebee’s before returning home.

Mae is glad to have her daughter, Sonja, back in Louisville, closer to home. She is looking forward to all of her children being home for Mother’s Day weekend, if it’s God’s will.

A lot of Kingscreek neighbors got together Saturday and picked up garbage for six miles, from Roxana to the head of Kingscreek. Hopefully, people will appreciate it and keep it clean.

The park at the mouth of Lynn Branch is coming along well. It will be much appreciated as a place where everyone can meet and socialize.

Linda Combs and her sister, Yvonne Sutphin, recently visited their brother, Robby Brown, in Myrtle Beach. While there, they spent a day in Charleston, S.C., going to the market, art galleries and an Irish restaurant. Another day they went to the nearby city of Georgetown, and toured two historic homes. They reported that George Washington had visited there before he was president.

A bridal shower was held at Blair Branch Church on April 25 for Megan Brown and John Watson. They received many nice gifts.

Regina and Christina Crawford and her children, Kylie Grace and Jacob, and Yvonne Sutphin attended the shower and spent the weekend with Bennett and Linda Combs.

Happy birthdays to Yvonne’s twin granddaughters, Jackie and Vickie Frome of Bedford, Va., on May 16, who are 20 years old. Also to Yvonne on May 16. She is 39 plus, and to Regina Crawford and Ramona Finchum on May 18.

J. T. and Carol Caudill spent the week in Tennessee.

Rodney Gilley and a friend of his, Pat Robinson, Dustin Gilley, The Bentleys, Joe, Miranda, Dylan and Hayden, along with a number of other friends, attended the annual trail ride at Knott County. There was a large crowd at the event in spite of the rain. Everyone had a wonderful time, mud and all.

They all look forward to the fall event.
