Notes for LOUISA ADLINE KING:
Married to Samuel Robert Carden, who was 16 years older than her. Before she married Mr. Carden , she was seeing a man named Billy Roden. It seems that they were planning to be married, but he was killed one night on his way home. Someone killed him with his own gun. Husband Samuel R. died and she had to make a living for herself and three children, Sarah Jane, Robert and Leona. They farmed and raised their own food. She sewed for people such as the Winchester White family and Eddy Evans family and she also quilted for other people.
Her daughter Leona, who was 96 years old in February 1998, remembers her Mother baking yeast loaf bread on the fireplace in a black iron skillet with a lid that sat on legs. They had a stove but Adline loved the bread baked in the fireplace. She also baked a corn loaf cake tht was really good, especially with butter while it was hot. Leona remembers a neighbor who would stop by to see if any fresh bread was cooked.
Chicken pie was another favorite dish that Leona remembers her Mother cooking. She remembers that Robert her brother and Evans had the same birthday and on one birthday her Mother ccooked a large chicken pie for all of them and they celebrated.
Adline made soap using animal fat, ashes and lye.
The Carden's didn't have a storm house. When it was stormy they family went to a neighbors storm house, usually the Billy Blaylocks, Uncle Wash Kings, or some of the Evans family.
Leona remembers that her Mother had long hair and it had no gray when she died. She was sick for two years. Doctor Buckalew, who was her doctor, said that she had heart dropsey. Her son Robert had to cut her hair when she was bedridden, because they couldn't care for it since it was so long.
Notes for SAMUEL ROBERT CARDEN:
Samuel R. Carden served in the Confederate Army. Story is that he lost the sight in one eye during battle. Later on he was working cleaning off a ditch bank and a limb hit him in the eye and he lost the sight on the other eye. At the time of his death he was blind.
I wonder if he was married before Rhoda.

Taken from the Commerial Dispatch : Logger Recalls Old Days in the Woods"
Jack Woolbright is 75 years old. Fifty of those 75 years were spent as a logger, timber cutter and sawmill operator. Now retired, and living on a farm in the Lost Creek area, Jack began logging when he was 12. This was in 1918.
"I started skiddin' logs around for my uncle." he said, "I come in here when the Kentucky Lumber Co. was over here. And I helped log this whole bottom out down through here, the Buttahatchee.
"After they got through here, why, I just logged for first one, then another of those little sawmills for several years, then I bought me a team of my own and went into the logging on my own after I married."
Jack was married in 1928, at the age of 22 to Lula Bell King.
"About in thirty-nine, then I quit doing the logging myself, and bought me a sawmill", he said. " I decided to let the rest of'em do the loggin'. Up till then, loggin was all I knew. I 've been mostly in that all my life. And then, sawmillig got so bad that, in 1964 or l965, I quit that and went to farmin'". He was 62 at that time. " I farmed and night watched too for Coy Glenn, up here at Detroit for about thirteen , fourteen years. Finally I quit the night watching and farmed for two or three more years and then quit." He grinned " I still make a small crop, corn and patches."
Jack Woolbright talked about logging in 1918.
" Well", he said, " It was pretty rough then. There wasn't much to do it with. Just an old mule and an iron tire wagon. And, when we came here with Kentucky Lumber Company and went down in this bottom, here we logged with an eight wheel wagon and old iron tire wagon about 6 inch tires on it. Eight wheels 'n' five mules."
"Some of the logs we hauled out of there were just nearly as thick through as you are tall. we hauled some that cut two thousand feet to the cut in them. There was a lot of red gum in there, 'n' they were bigger."
"We logged that for them for several years. we stayed with them till they got done and they quit. Then we scattered our, and got on our own."
Jack Woolbright was asked about the biggest tree he had ever cut. " Me and Ed Kitrell once hauled a cypress out of this bottom down here that had five sixteen foot cuts on it," he said. "That tree had five thousand and some (board) feet in it. It was about six foot through at the butt. They had to weld two cross cut saws together to cut it down with. Most of those saws was about six to six and 1/2 foot long to begin with. They had about four men on the saw and it took seven head of mules to handle the logs. We had to use a block and line to get the butt cut on the wagon with. It was an eight wheel wagon. Most folks don't know nothing about a double block now, but that's what we used, a double block. Thing was, that it would triple your power. And the ground was about as dry as it is now and we mired down with that cut on the wagon about three times before we got a quarter of a mile with it to the landing. We carried it our to the railroad and dropped it off on the track there. Had to tie it to a tree to keep from turning the car over that they loaded it on."
Jack Woolbright sat in the chair on his porch and grinned, shaking his head. " There was so many thins happened when I was logging.. I don't remember most of 'em," He continued. "We handled a whole lot of stuff, and there ain't much to tell about it, other than just a whole lot of hard work to it. Now in this day and time, when you log, they take most of the manual labor out of it. But, that was about all you had back then, manual labor and a mule". He was asked about cutting logs for use as ship masts, and how long they had to be. "Well they'd take it in different lengths," he said. "But most of it was short lengths.
They finally got to where they'd comin' up, when everything else changes, and that did too."
"Most of what they cut down here in the pine was what they called dense pine. Real fine grain pine, you know. But what we called buttermilk, they wouldn't have it. Then you couldn't give it away, much less sell it. But the most that Kentucky Lumber Company dealt with and their biggest sale was this red gum and what they called 'figgered' gum, y'know. There was a lot of trees anywhere from three and a half to five foot through. And some of 'em were what they called 'figgered gum'. When they cut it off into a plank, it'd have different designs on it, just like something had been painted there or stamped there on it. That was the thing they mostly went for, I don't know what they sold that for, but we cut a bunch of it. That and red gum. And red gum back then was about the only kind of gum that would sell. Sap gum, where it didn't have the heart, it wouldn't sell then."
Jack sits a moment, thinking, then: "I logged with my own team awhile and then I bought me a sawmill. Labor was six bits and a dollar a day, and you were getting ten dollars a thousand for lumber, eight and ten when I was sawmillin'. You could get about three dollars or three and a half a day, when you were using your team then, logging in the thirties. So I went to sawmilling then I went to cutting cross ties for Hardin Tie Company, and I believe they were thirty cents a piece. and the lumber that come off the side of them, you couldn't give it away. But finally the war came on and everything picked up a little and it got to where you could go a little better." But after the war, with the birth of technology and the chain saw, logging as Jack Woolbright and others of his generation had know it, became a thing og the past.
Jack Woolbright was asked if he could think of any other specific stories about his logging years. " No", he replied. "It's been so long since I thought about it, I just don't recollect too much about it."
" A Christmas Memory"
This Christmas memory was written by Sr. A Barry W. Carruth pn December 24, 1989 when he was stationed in Blytheville, Arkansas a few months after his grandfather Jack Woolbright had died.
I'm writing this because I'm spending my first Christmas in 22 years without my "Pa Jack". It's still kind of hard to believe that he is gone from this world. He was so big and strong, it just seemed like he would live forever. I was thinking about all the times I'd seen him sell corn or peas and he would throw in a little extra ' just in case some are bad'. I guess what made me think about this is that it is Christmas and it's a time for giving and it just made me think about my Pa Jack. He GAVE 365 days a year, the whole 83 years he was in this world.
Sometimes he was hard to understand, because it had to be his way or not at all, but you knew that he was just doing it that way because he thought he was right ( and most of the time he was ) and he wanted the best for us. He didn't say " I love you" very much or give very many hugs, but he was ALWAYS there, when you needed him. If you ever got in trouble and needed PA JACK to bail you out . . . he would. If you were wrong, he would let you know and correct you. I guess what I 'm trying to say is he may not have said " I love you", but his actions. . . his giving ways. . .him always being there meant alot more than those three words could ever mean.
To you PA JACK I want to say, I love you and Merry Christmas. It's hard this Christmas without you being here with us. I know that you are having your best Christmas ever, Pa, you are with your Savior and we are still here in this single digit weather. I can picture you sitting by a big chinaberry tree, chewing tobacco and ole Luke lying there beside you! Pa, we're sad, we don't have you here with us anymore, but you are having your BEST CHRISTMAS ever!!! Again MERRY CHRISTMAS PA JACK.

10 12 1989
Written by: Barbara W. Carruth
I'm writing this as I am sitting in the funeral home with Daddy getting ready for his service this afternoon. So many people came to the funeral home last night to offer condolences to our family . I stood at the casket from a little before six o'clock until after 8:30 before I was able to move away. There was such a line of people coming in to view the body and offer condolences. So many kind words were spoken on Daddy's behalf. Comments about how he had helped them, or given them extra measure in vegetables.
So many lives he has touched, if he knew he wouldn't believe it!!
I remember Monday afternoon, I talked with Daddy before his death on Tuesday. We always talked each afternoon and would discuss current events and daily happenings and other topics that were important to each of us. He told me again how much God had helped him. He remarked that God was a powerful God and he could help us with anything. Nothing was too big for God. He mentioned about how years ago God helped him rid himself or kick a bad habit. Daddy knew God was real, because he knew what a work God had done in his own life. Daddy never knew the love of an earthy father, because his father died before he was born. If Daddy could talk to us today, I know he would say....don't put off a personal relationship with Jesus...let him have your life today. If Daddy had regrets, I believe it would be, the wasted years before he let Jesus control his life.
Daddy was a man of prayer, he didn't pray loud repetitous prayers. He was always talking to the "man upstairs". He knew prayer worked. He practiced prayer and he saw prayers answered and he always gave God the praise and glory in his own quiet way.
He taught us to support the church, your community and to believe in our country.
He taught us to stand up for what we believed to be right. Daddy believed that a man's word was his bond. " Always stand behind your word"! Daddy always said " Friends are worth more than money". Afavorite phrase of Daddy's was "the Lord smiled on him" That would be his comment as to the Lord granting him death in a few seconds. Paul said "to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. That's what Daddy believed. And I know that he is with Him today.
