History: Growing up in the Hutchinson Community Church area
Stories by Prudence Hutchison Westholm, the venerable Jim, and Adair County Historian Mike Watson evoked memories of the scenic area of Adair County, especially of the wonderful Sunday School teachers at Hutchison Community Church and the one room school teacher, Ruth Thomas.
This story evokes new posit: "Out at Pigtail." ??? How did the area get that sobriquet? And how do the natives feel about it? -EW

Memories of Pelham Branch, PB Road & Hutchison Community
I am writing about this article (History: Frontier Justice - How Pelham received its name) because I found it very interesting since I grew up there in the Hutchison Community along Pelham Branch, and Pelham Branch Road. I lived there all of my young life.
I went to my first grade of school there; Mrs. Ruth Thomas (the wife of Hugh Thomas) was my teacher.
She was wonderful. We also went to church there and believe me - my dad made sure we were always there.
What wonderful Sunday School teachers we had! Mr. GarnetT Loy was the best, I believe.
Those Sunday School teachers helped mold us into what we are today. I now live in Indiana, but I own a house there and I love to come back every chance I get. I lost my mom about six weeks ago I know it will be hard to come back and not find her there. But I know she is OK. She is with my dad and Jesus.
