I can remember Blanche and Earl always sitting out on the porch. Leo's mom and dad were Verdie and Jess Fluty. I heard that Leo passed away in the 1980's.

Squire was probally an old english name for a magistrate. Repect for a magistrate in a rural area. Going north of Crum next to Conn's was a house on the hill owned by Dell Marcum. I think her son was Delno (spelling)Marcum. He had a sister or two that were alot older than me. I do remember Delno. He probally graduated 59 or 60.

Christine, Doris Fluty was Doris Chafin. Her father and mother lived on the river bank above Copley's store. One of Doris's sisters was Ethel Marcum. She was married to Press Marcum and later the Post Mistress at Crum. Their Dad was Richard Chafin, and he worked on the RR. I think their youngest sister was named Helen Chafin. She probally graduated in 1960-61. I understand the house is still there on the river. We boys from Crum hollow use to swim in the river below their house. There were two rocks that we called little and big rock on the edge of the river. Great memories! Now, I realize how old I am.

It sure is nice to read about old memories on here. Usually there is too much gossip. I am a Romans from Crum Lived here all my life but wasn't born until 1961.
Crum Hollow as we always knew it----The Romans family was Walter and Thersa Romans. Their children were---Barbara, Danny, Brenda, Martha,
Grady, Lloyd and Rodney. The Conns, The Stacy's. one old house that was in the bend of the curve and an old church right beside it. I used to think that old house was haunted. I would walk out of there with my cousins(the Romans)and we would run when we got there. Back to the people living here still---Delbert and Estelle Crum. Estelle lives on Bull Creek now. All her sons live up there with her except for Delmos. He was killed when a coal truck wrecked and hit a school bus. He had ran home to get a quilt to cover up a teacher that was killed in that wreck. As He was comming back from his house another coal truck , travelling to fast down the new cut through (Bull Mtn)turned over and covered him up with coal. That is one fine family.
I am best friends with Glenn Prichards daughters. Glenn is still living here. We go to church together at the Crum Missionary Baptist. The one on this side of the tracks, close to where Rays Resturant was. It has a Red Brick front. I'm not sure when that was added. If it was added before 1969. It's the Church that Walter Hensley used to pastor.
I am the neice of Ray and Lorena Williamson that had the resturant.(I also have his hot dog chili recipe)"wink"!
Leo Fluty passed away. Everyone remembers Leo. I live out the same lane as he did. His nephew Dale lives there in the homeplace now.
You mentioned Johnny Scaggs. He lives in Huntington now. My cousin Norman Romans played football with him. Johnny came to Crum when i was in High school and coached our basketball and football team when i was in Jr. High.
My mom and Dad was William (Junior) Romans and Virginia. My Mom was a cook at Crum if you went to school there in 1969. I am also married to James and Noreda Perry's oldest son Gary. I'm sure you remember James. He was the coach there for 21yrs. Had a state championship and runner up teams.
I didn't mean to take up so much time but if i can answer any questions about Crum i would try. I have lived here my whole life. I love it here. A lot of people have moved from here but there are a few still left. Troy Varney and Mary. Troy graduated in the 50's. Ed and Doris Fluty sre still living beside Copleys Mkt. Imagean Dawson is still living here. Although not very sociable since Ralph passed. Herb can remember EVERYTHING!! And you're right about the book on Crum. Nothing but trash and lies. Lee Maynard(the author) only lived here one yr. His Dad was sent up here to teach for one yr. Something to do as "punishment" from the board. He didn't fit in so he took revenge in his book. A lot of his characters were suppose to be fictional but Virgina Prichard could tell u who everyone was.
It's been nice!

I remember Jr. and Virginia well. Virginia (your mom) use to help during lunch at Ray's. I went to grades 3,4, and 6 at the Church of Crist building. Norman graduated 1960, but, didn't he pass away several years ago? The ole house in the curve was probally Ervin Marcums. His wife's name was Florence, and she always stayed in the house. I think she was an invalid. Ervin and Florence were really nice people. There was another person that stayed with Ray and Lorene. Her name was Sue. I think Sue's last name was Sammons or Salmons. I think you had a brother that stayed there alot too. His name was Ricky, and he liked to hang around us older boys at the pinball machine. I also remember the old phone booth in the back corner. I remember us trying to cheat the machine and Ricky would tell Lorene on us. Funny now! Ray always sat in the rocker and watched the TV. Those were the days.

It was demolished some years ago and a new highway goes there. I was informed the road goes from top of bull mountain to jennies creek. It must bypass Crum.

Curious,it is too bad we can't put personal info. on this site. I did not know that Bessie was a sister to Barbara. I also remember Lou and Jr. Etters. I think one of your brothers went into the ARMY about the same time I did, 1960's . I do remember your sisters. I think your family lived in the white house above the school. I remember alot of people who lived on Silver Creek. Cullie an Cecil, Okey Sturgill, Lewis Perry, Adams family that lived in the last house on Silver Creek. Henry Little. You may have been too young to know them. My sister remembers Earn and Ruth. I don't! Do you still live in the area? Things were simple then and everyone knew someone.

Oh I sure do remember your mother. She was a wonderful lady. All of my brothers and sisters remember her too. If we get out there for a visit, we want to see her. You can send me a private message through this site or connect with my daughter on facebook. Do you have a facebook account? I am not sure if it is safe to give out names on this site.

Also my sister, Gloria, is wondering if anyone remembers a Nellie Sue Varney.She would have been born sometime around 1945 or 46. This was her best friend during childhood years but somehow they lost touch with each other.
Bessie and I used to sit and have coffee together in the store. I was a teenager then. She and Howard would come over quite a bit.

Curious, I grew up in Crum Hollow. Sorry about your brother and sister. As we age, we keep faces the same as we last remember. Your mom and dad always attended church with my family. They would come to the Freewill church in the hollow. It was a long building built on the side of the road and extended on long poles over the bank. I understand that Stone Coal has changed. The old RR crossing doesn't exist there anymore. I can remember an old store as you crossed over to stone coal. I think it was Brewer's store. These post have brought back a lot of good memories. Are you old enough to remember the tragedy with the Adam's family. They lived in the last house on Silver Creek.

Curious, it has brought back a lot of memories for me too. This could have been a great site if people had not put a lot of junk on here. I remember the evening the (Adams) happened. We were so shocked, because I knew Seth. They were a nice family. What happened to the boy? Man now. Do you remember Okey and his family, Phobe, Joe, Charles and Albert? I know your mom remembers my family, but I do not do facebook, and this site isn't safe at all. I use to love the Waltons and thought it would have been fun to have been them. After all these posts, I realize we were a neighborhood like them. Life was simple!
