        From a letter from Louise (------) [possibly Louise Roberts Clayton] to M. C. Engstrom dated 12 Mar 1975):
        "I am excited about your being able to find so many inscriptions ... I have the family Bible with some dates recorded. The two graves on the west side of the cemetery -- Rufus A. and Malvenia Susan (Pope) Reid -- are my grandparents. I never knew my grandfather but my grandmother (called Beanie) was one of the beautiful people in my life. The tenant house you passed on the way to the cemetery is the original house. The original part is one large log room with a large rock fireplace, a little winding stairway in the corner which leads to the attic room above. The log kitchen stood just west of the house. One of my first memories is of my father tearing the kitchen down. Old wooden looms, spinning wheels, etc., were brought down from the attic of the kitchen and burned - horrors! The kitchen fireplace even had wooden put-hooks which I can barely remember. I do not remember the kitchen being used as a kitchen. It was the wash house and 'tator house when I remember. My mother told me tales about a lot of things and she described how they had their formal herb garden, flower garden and vegetable garden on the north side of the house. I can remember a remnant of beautiful purple iris, a couple of snowball (I think) bushes and a winesap apple tree that were still there when I was a tot. I was born in that house. My grandmother lived in the house that is burned, you mentioned the chimneys. I have never been able to determine how old that original log room might be. It goes way, way back."'
