Well give up. She's got too much class to sleep with anybody that would be a big enough jerk to say something this tacky!

Her neighbors back then were Brenda and Charles Helms. I talked to Charles last year when he was going to our church. He and Brenda split up and the kids are living with her in Polkton. Being divorced he couldn't be a deacon and he was all tore up about it. He said he was more tore up about how the church was treating him than he was about Brenda having a boyfriend living with her and the kids. he said he could forgive Brenda but he had a hard time forgiving the church where he had gone his whole life and got saved at. Brenda is working at the elementary school on the highway he said.

He said "Marty" is living in South Carolina near Camden. She is married to a long haul truck driver and they have a son about 5 he thinks. He said he has talked to her on the phone but she doesn't come back to Marshville very often. She has a brother and family in this area but they don't hardly speak and don't get along.

I imagine all of us have people from the past that we wonder what became of them. And others whose mention will remind us of old times.
But this should be done without so many details of any private conversations, personal observations, speculations, all kinds of rumors, and just plain untruths.

It's bad enough when someone becomes the fodder of the rumor mills of the people they know, much less to have it posted for the public consumption of total strangers!
Some business people, entertainers, and especially politicians take their lives before the public and should expect a certain amount of that. But not most people.
Use the discretion that you would want others to use when speaking about you!!

What was the name of the little Grocery Store out on 205 about a mile out of town? They sold Sinclair Gas. This would have been in the 50s- 60s. A little short man with wire rim glasses who always wore Pointer brand overalls ran it with his wife. Her name might have been Maude or Molly. Edgar thinks it was either Collins or Coggins but that doesn't sound right to me. Any help is appreciated. They were sweet people.

Mr and Mrs Copple ran a little store but it wasn't right on 205. Her name was Molly but I don't remember his. Their little run down store was on a road that connected with 205. Mr Copple was real short, not much over 5 foot tall. Mrs Molly Copple was taller than him and always carried a pistol in her dress pocket. I remember she dipped Tube Rose snuff and Mr. Copple chewed tobacco. They had a big old oil tank on the side of the store and all the kids who lived around there would sit on it and write their names on it. They lived within sight of the store. Back then stores weren't open on Sunday but if you wanted something on Sunday you could pull up in the parking lot and blow your horn. Directly Miss Molly or the old man would come and unlock the door and sell you what you needed. Lots of people from in town Marshville would go to their store on Sunday. When the old man died she closed up and moved in with one of their kids somewhere way off. A couple of years later Joel Austin bought that property and tore the old store and their old house down. He put up chicken houses. Now all the old chicken houses are falling in and tore up.

Who was the driver (that had a Marshville connection) who was killed at Starlight Speedway when his car hit the guard rail and burst into flames?

Bonus if you know why or how he was connected to Marshville.

@Mike Stegall ...I have not seen your answer until just now. That's the folks I remember, Mr Copple always wore Pointer Overalls and chewed tobacco. He loved to play checkers and if you beat him he would go get you a free coca-cola. He didn't usually loose though. My name was on that old oil tank outside. I remember they sold milk in Mason jars that they got from their own cows. It was the only milk they had. Old Mr Copple was kind of quiet but Miss Molly was loud and ran the store with a iron fist. She would tell people right quick that it was time to leave if they caused any trouble.

Do you remember those drink boxes where the drinks were in icy cold water and you had to slide them out through those iron bars? Some of the drinks I remember besides Coke and Pepsi were Nehi Grape and Orange, 7 Up and Bubble Up, chocolate soldier, Nugrape and TruAide orange, Double Cola, Cheerwine, RC and Fresca. Later on we got Mountain Dew and Sun Drop.

Do you remember playing "Travel" with coca-cola bottles? All of the Coca-Cola bottles had the names of the towns or cities where they were bottled on the bottom of the bottle. You would pick one out of the cooler and look at the bottom to see where it was from. All the other people playing would do the same. the one farthest away won and everybody had to give him a nickle or dime or quarter whatever amount you were playing for.

@Elm Street Visionary (Mrs J?)...The race car driver that was killed at Starlight Speedway was James Sears. His wife was raised in Marshville but moved away when she was about 12 or 13. Her family went to Hamilton's Crossroads Baptist Church.

I have to laugh thinking about Copple's Store. One of my cousins got mad at Mr. Copple and cussed him. Miss Molly come around that counter screaming with a axe handle and chased him out of the store. She told my cousin Purvis that if he ever stepped foot in the store again she would crack his head open. Purvis (Pee Dab) never went back in there either! He would stop his bicycle outside and give his bother or one of us his money to buy him a "drank".

people in Mville, always hilarious! there were some great characters
to be written about back in those days! we could make up some of
the funniest stories about local people ... lol ...
