Morrison log home (1815) is much more than a cabin
Writer remembers much more about historic building at Chance, and regrets, as so many of us do, not taking time to listen to Obie Coomer's memories before Mr. Coomer went to his reward.
Comments re article 70898 Morrison family cabin at Chance is one of oldest in Adair
By Bobby D Morrison
I am amazed that my son remembered this information. Carved on one of the big yellow popular logs, exposed when the people purchased the property removed the shiplap siding, is a carving with the date 1815, on the end of the house toward Rock Lick Creek.
Mr. Obie Coomer told me about this log house being a gathering place and the big parties there and we discussed getting together for me to learn more of the information he knew about my Patterson side of the family. But unfortunately, due to my international work, it did not happen before he went to his reward.
It is much more than a cabin. - Bobby D Morrison
