Rev. Clifford Spurlock family: Life at Brightshade, KY

Comments re article 19613 Rev Clifford Spurlock family CM readers have warm memories

By Harold Hubbard

Just run across this page on Reverend Clifford Spurlock and his wife Lena.

I knew the Spurlock family during the 1950s while he was pastor of the Mill Creek United Methodist Church (might have been Evangelical United Brethern Church at that time) at Brightshade Kentucky.

Reverend Spurlock operated the Acme Recording Studio at Brightshade and later at Manchester Kentucky.

My mother Pearl Hubbard was postmaster at Brightshade and Acme Records did all their mail outs through this postoffice, the postal inspectors came and checked out my mother because of the large increase in sale of postage stamps.

I have an Acme LP album of the Carter Family that was recorded at Brightshade.

My mother, who lived just across the creek from the Spurlocks, was great friends with them. - Harold Hubbard
