    • "One of the best stories I can recall Grandpa telling me was the time he took me to the place where he built the one room log cabin that he and Grandma started their life together in. All that remained of the cabin at that time were traces of the foundation and chimney. We sat down near a water spring that was close to where the cabin stood and he proceeded to tell me how he and his brother had built the cabin and how proud he was of it when he brought Grandma there for the first time. He said at that time, (1896) the entire area was covered with forest. Very little land had been cleared for farming and that Indians, although not hostile, still moved freely through this part of the country from time to time. This place is located at the back of the farm where we lived at that time, (known as the Lewis farm) and was some 200 yards west from where the Lewis, Denny, and Mcburney farms join."
