Jerry, now that ya'll have lost your leader for the discussion group, do one of you plan to pick up the torch and continue? I found it interesting when this group was formed, but then he quit posting about your journies through Itawamba and Monroe Counties. It was so interesting to learn of how things were "back then" and how they affect our lives today. My earliest family ties are from GGGgrandparents, John A. Dyer and wife Lena (with so many ways to spell!) who thought they were settling in Marion County Alabama in 1830 to learn later that they were in southern Itawamba County. The Dyer Cemetery up on the hill above co. rd. 23 is all that is left of what had been their homestead. Of course, the Kennedy Clan who are buried at Kennedy Chapel are shall I say "tenents in common?" My maternal Great grandmother, Sarah Catherine Dyer married the widower, William Maxfield Kennedy so my attachment there is by "step" great grandfather!

I do hope some one of you will pick up the challenge or perhaps convince "Sweetie" Thornton to carry on in Terry's memory. She certainly provided interesting pictures of her cooking creations for Terry to share with us. My mouth watered when looking at her success with a pie crust! I have always over worked a crust dough so I don't even attempt that in my golden years - my first apple pie crust back in 1952 required 3 days of soaking to turn loose from the pan! Enough admitting my wrongs. . . . Bettye Woodhull
