The Old Clark Cabin ca 1939



2015-11-28 - On Green River before Green River Lake Flooded it . Old Clark Cabin This photo is in the archives of Larry Clark. On the front porch, from left, Jess Clark, then Larry Clark's grandmother, Cordie Clark; Wency Clark, and her baby Jimmy; the next couple is Hank Kruse & his woman; (???), and on the end of the porch, Larry's father Jimmy Golden Clark. The cabin had to be torn down when the Corps of Engineers confiscated the Clark's 112 acres and gave them $12,500. The family had to go in debt and bought a 100 acre farm on Russell Creek - one the old Hindman farms on Russell Creek. The creek wasn't the same as the river, Larry Clark, remembers. I can remember we sat on the front porch in Milltown and sang for the old place. Our song was "I Wanta Go Home." It was popular then. Out of frame on the left, is Larry Clark's grandfather, Aaron Clark. And the handsome little dog? Larry Clark doesn't remember it's name, but recalls that it died after being bitten by a rattlesnake.

Pawpaw discussion continues

The Pawpaw discussion continues and the memories are sweet but I still wonder why the trees in my yard remain fruitless year after year.

By Linda Waggener

The Pawpaw discussion which began with Larry Clark's extensive photo collection reminded me how much I love the taste, or how much I think I love the taste.

I haven't eaten a right-off-the-tree warm Pawpaw in forty years or more, so it could just be the memories of being out on the Sulphur Well farm sharing them with Mom and Dad in late summer under ancient trees.

They were a treat for kids eating Mr. John Goff's paw paws - he lived in Michigan and didn't care - while walking home from Pleasant Hill School between Joppa, Montpelier, and Glens Fork in Adair County, KY. But one day, she remembers, she ate so many she got sick and has never eaten one since. And now she wonders why the fuss over paw paws.

By Von Price I haven't thought of a Paw Paw in years and when I have no one knows what I am talking about.

I remember eating them when I was in grade school.
