Looking For Former Students
Of Mount Eagle Grade School
I am looking for any readers who went to Mount Eagle Grade School
from the years of 1945 through the early 1950s. The school was
located in Cresmont, better known as Farmer's Ridge on Route
587 in Lee County, Kentucky. I would love to talk to anyone who
attended school there. The teachers at that time were Carol Marcum
and Gentry Farmer. The school was a one-room structure and has
since been converted into a home. If anyone has pictures of the
old school that they would share, I would gladly pay for the
postage and any cost for prints. Also I am looking for anyone
who has any plum granny seeds to share.

Poke Salad Seeds
And Winter Onions
I would like some poke salad seeds and winter onions. Winter
onions are multiplying. I use to dig them up, even when the ground
was covered with snow, and have them to eat along with my beans.
Here in Texas poke salad is very hard to come by. Since I have
a large yard I can grow my own.
I will have some cuttings from a Pink Confederate rose bush this
fall, if anyone is interested. I only ask for the cost of postage.
