JIM: Word sketches of Hindman homestead near Milltown, Ky.


For newcomers not yet matriculated at the Adair Assimilation Academy, native son J.R. Hindman served a term as lieutenant governor of Kentucky in the 1880s and for the remainder of his life was accorded the honorific "Governor".

The lineage of those named (or mentioned in passing) below is Alexander (the Green/Adair County pioneer), his son Robert, grandson Alexander, and great-grandsons J.R. and Charley.


(no headline)

The old homestead where Gov. J.R. Hindman and his brothers and sisters were reared, is an old time double log building, located on Big Creek, near Milltown. It is in a fine state of preservation and was built about one hundred years ago. It is a typical "old Kentucky home" with beautiful shade trees and evergreens about the yard, and as fine water flows as can be found there.

LWC Football beats Union 72-9 in record-breaking fashion

Records broken: High Offense, 72 points; season low in points and yards surrendered; 7 wins one season a program high
Next: Lindsey Wilson College Football Team hosts Bluefield College (Bluefield, VA) at 1:30pmCT/2:30pmET, Saturday, November 9, 2013, at Blue Raider Stadium, 928 Russell Road, Columbia, KY

By Chris Wells

BARBOURVILLE, KY - No. 18-ranked Lindsey Wilson football scored a program-record 72 points and out-gained host Union (KY) College 566-242 in total yards in a 72-9 win on Saturday at Burch/Nau Stadium.

Lindsey Wilson quarterback Branden Cresap threw for 270 yards and five touchdowns while running back Rome Cotton rushed for 115 yards and two scores to lead the Blue Raider offense. With his performance, Cotton eclipsed the 100-yard rushing plateau for a third straight game.

While the Blue Raider offense was setting records, the Lindsey Wilson defense had arguably its most complete game of the season.

The Blue Raiders (7-2, 2-2 in the Mid-South East Division) surrendered season-lows in points and yards while forcing a pair of turnovers.

Avery Ford tied a single-season program-record with his fifth interception this season to help the Blue Raiders hold a team scoreless for a half for a second straight week. Lindsey Wilson also held the Bulldogs (3-6, 2-2) to 1-for-13 on third downs and allowed Union to score just once -- a fourth-quarter field goal -- in its three trips inside the red zone.

With the combined effort, Lindsey Wilson led 34-0 at the half.

Cresap matched his own program-record with five touchdown tosses of nine, 14, 15, 26 and 74 yards. It marks the fourth time overall and third time this season he has thrown for five touchdowns. Cresap has 31 touchdown passes this season.

Chaz Barnes hauled in two scores from Cresap while Cotton, Tavis Elzy and Matt Powers each had one touchdown catch. Powers finished with a team-high four catches for 114 yards -- his seventh career 100-yard receiving game.

Cotton -- the reigning Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week -- opened and closed the third quarter scoring with touchdown runs of six and 24 yards. Cotton finished with three total scores, including his seventh and eighth rushing touchdowns of the season.

Union running back Leonard Dixon provided one of the few offensive highlights of the day for the Bulldogs. Dixon scored on a 75-yard run with 11:37 left in the third quarter. He finished with 145 rushing yards and a touchdown.

It took Lindsey Wilson eight seconds to respond to the Union score.

Cortez Barber took the subsequent kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown -- the first kick return touchdown of the season for the Blue Raiders.

Barber would add a 60-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and finish the day with a program-record 238 all-purpose yards.

The seven wins -- a program high -- match the Blue Raiders' 2011 win total.

E. H. Lepiarczyk writes:
November 2, All Souls Day, is greatly honored and celebrated throughout Europe as well. I know that in Poland, many family members visit the graves of departed loved ones and place candles and flowers at the grave sites. On November 1, cemeteries in Europe resemble cemeteries in the United States during Memorial Day in May. I visited the Concord Cemetery at New Concord on Friday and sang religious songs at the grave sites of my departed loved ones. -E. H. Lepiarczyk
