Subject:  [ARDREW] Will Hollinger
 

Does any of you remember Mr. Hollinger that was mentioned as going to
Little
Rock in 1917? His son Dot worked in the Binns store in Monticello for
years.
Mr. Will was one of the funniest men I have ever known. He could tell a
story
and you nearly spit your sides laughing. He was a good friend to my folks.
John Austin and Willie Jones. I remember going to his wifes funeral at
Prairie Grove when I was a little boy. one story he told was this: He had
bought a browning automatic shotgun. In those days no one in that area had
electricty. One night some years after his wifes death, it was hot and he
couldn't sleep. No one had screens in those days and you slept with all the
windows and doors open. He was sitting out in his porch swing about 2 am
trying to get cool. A panther screamed very close to his house. He always
said ah before beginning a sentence. He said ah I got cold real quick and
went in the house and loaded up my browning automatic and closed all the
windows and doors. Any of you that knew him should appreciate this story.
Beth Thurman's mother stayed with the Hollingers when she taught us at
Midway
and rode a horse two miles to the school. We walked two miles from the
other
direction. Was that the good old days or what?  C.L. Jones

C.L., Mr. Will died in l960, and I remember him well even though I was only
l0 at the time.

Once when I was just a little girl about two or three years old, I was
standing in the church pew looking backwards when he came in a little late.
 He had gotten a new wine courderoy?sp shirt for Christmas, and I announced
in a voice loud enough that the the entire congregation heard, " You've got
on a mighty purty shir, Mr. Hollinger."  Memaw said he was rather
embarrassed, but he nodded at me and said, " THank you" even though church
was proceeding an everyone was looking.

According to my Memaw, I embarrassed her so much as a child that there were
many times she wished the floor would just open up and swallow her on the
spot.  Perhaps this was one of those times.  However, I can't believe that
anyone as innocent and sweet as I could have ever been that emabarrassing.
*grin*

I also remember the Ah before his words.  also, I remember how rattle
snakes would crawl up on his porch as he was the only one besides C.L.'s
family that still lived way back in those woods.  In fact, we rode our
4-wheelers back there just the other day, and it was the first time I had
been there in years.  Nothing left except an old wash tub, a slop jar, and
a granite pan.  Seemed awfully sad when I think about all the good times I
had visiting with Mr. Will when my Grandaddy and I would be off hunting
hogs, cows, or just rambling on horseback.  He was truly a neat person.

The  Bill Andrews, Dick Thurmans, and Donald Lee families were all related
to him.  In fact, he connected to the Merediths, too.  His family came from
Germany to Misssissippi so I've been told.

When his wife died, he left everything right where she had left it so I've
been told.  In fact, her dresses hung on the wall until his death and her
shoes sat under the edge of the bed where she left them.  His wife was
Eppie(Effie)depending on whom you talk to Wolfe, the daughter of Albert
Trapnel Wolfe and Anna Eliza (Dutch) Ferguson, some of my double
kinfolks...the ones who reared my great-grandfather Wolfe.

C.L., are you sure mother lived with them or was it uncle Al?

When mr. Will died, he had been killing a hog.  Apparently, he had a heart
attack and felt it coming on.  He didn't come to town that weekend, and Dot
decided on Sunday to go check on him.  when He got there, Mr. will was
sitting on the front porch in a rocker with his head reared back and a
bloody wash cloth in his hand where he had been killing the hog.  The hog
was still hanging in the lot.

I thought about that  a lot when Grandie and I would be back there on our
horses until the house finally fell down.  It is rather sad when we think
about all the neat people who have come and gone in our lives and how those
woods in the Bearhouse Twp. used to be filled with people for theri only to
be about six families left in the whole township today.  I bet there are 30
square miles of nothing but deer camps left there today.

Beth Thurman replies under the TerriLee email.  Terri
is her cousin and they live together.  She's related
through the Wolfe and Daniel connections. I'm related
through the Daniel's but she's the "expert" on Drew
County, AR residents.  She provided the info to me and
I made a Wolfe lineage and a Daniel lineage.  I'm sort
of an info compiler and a net researcher.  She knew
these people but I didn't.

Subject:  Re: [ARDREW] Midway and Prairie Grove Schools
 

C.L., the county school superintendent, Hubert McKeown, still has the old
community school records. They are in the courthouse in a room on the lst
floor. I've looked at a lot of these, but there are boo coos.  I looked up
the ones with Mother teaching at ladelle and Midway.

I also found one and one only in l905 inan old journal in the vault
downstairs....It is a mess.  The dust, etc, nearly killed me , but I kept
digging.  Most everything there deals with finance; however, this one had
one year's record of finances of different school districts, and it gave
Prairie Grove as having three schools. j As I mentioned to someone, maybe
on the list, that I thought they had to be the Carpenter School and the one
between Midway and the Prairie the Memaw mentioned once.  She supposedly
attended this school only one year.  Joe Pat Riley was the teacher, and he
stayed with PaPa and Momma Georgia Lagrone.  Memaw, Uncle Latner, and Uncle
Vernon rode with him to school.  I don't know what the real name of this
school was, but Memaw called it Pine Knot College.  The Carpenter SChool
has been referred to as Pecerwood Point.  Pine Knot College was somewhere
northeast of Tubbs and south of the Will Hollinger Place according to
Memaw.  After this one year, they were transferred back to the Prairie.

I one looks at the land plat for l9l0, there is a section near the Arthur
Lloyd deercamp that was meant for a school.  Arlong LLoyd told me once that
he knew about a school or had heard of one.

As far as records, there are some at the school, too, but I've never delved
into them.
