Miss Donna Rieder learning a lot about Coffey Hole land

Land was once Judd Hill; there was once a distillery on property

Miss Donna Rieder writes:
What a great response I got to the posting of that photo, especially a phone call from Mr. Leon Huff, whose property joins mine at one point. His property has been in his family for generations, and he is very familiar with my property as well, having played here as a kid. He shared some interesting history of my parcel with me, including the fact that it used to be known as "Judd Hill," after a Mr. Judd who owned the property at one time and had a distillery at the spring. He promised he and his sister would come visit me soon, and bring copies of papers and other information about the history of not only my place, but the surrounding area, Sam Coffey Hole, and such. Fascinating stuff! -Miss Donna
