Note:
The author is indebted to Mrs. J. C. Poindexter for the following information:
During a funeral she said she parked her buggy under a tree. Just as the preacher was dismissing the crowd, there came a peal of thunder out of a clear sky. A cloud quickly gathered and a terrific rain and wind storm followed. She got in her buggy and started home and the tree under which she had been sitting was blown down just as she drove away.

She also states that during the Civil War there was a funeral procession just across the river a company of soldiers met them. One of the soldiers ordered the driver of the wagon which was hauling the corpse to exchange one of his good horses for an old crippled mule. While the exchange was taking place the Lieutenant in command came up and ordered them to hurry. At this time the driver of the wagon made a certain sign which the officer recognized. He order the horse replaced, apologized to the owner and ordered his men to stand at attention until the funeral procession past. (He was a Mason).

The late Dr. Henderson gave me this information:
In 1861 three carpetbaggers came to a Mr. “X” leading one of his mares with a grapevine around her neck. He told Mr “X” the Captain requisitioned this mare and wanted to know if he had a bridle. Mr. said, “Yes” and went into the house. He had a cap and ball rifle and pistol and upon returning he shot and killed two of them, but before he could reload the third one was out of range. They buried both bodies in the same grave at the head of Mr. “X’s” family lot. About twenty-five years ago Mr. “X” died and when they opened his grave they dug into to the foot of the grave of the two carpetbaggers which Mr. “X” had killed. The men shoveled the bones back and buried Mr. “X” with his head in the grave of the two men he had killed.
Mr. “X” was a Mason and fellow Masons took him to Gentry Hill where they hid him for six week. They took turns taking him food and water during the dark hours of midnight. One night it was Dr. Henderson’s time to go but when he arrived at the river he found it bank full. He tied up his horse, found a log, rolled it into the river and poled it across while sitting astride it. (What loyalty)
