Hi Mary, you just wrote about one of the best kept secrets in the area, the burning of trees ! The lumber was not the thing wanted but the ashes ! i read where the women actually did the ash making work. Our areas first chemists. Can you imagine the outcry now ? The LWV would be in twitches !

It should be required reading by all people in the area. I also loved the old pictures. How fast the time went by !
