    Notes 
    • From my old emails of 1999:
      DEAR MS. KOUNS:
      I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I received the book from Lawrence Co. Ohio. I took it over to my mother Lillian Chatfield Slomers and handed it to her. She opened the cover and saw the name
      "Kouns" and said, " I used to know some Kouns'es that lived up in Possum Holler by mom." [Nancy Jane Ward Chatfield]. Then she proceeded to tell
      me this little story:
      "I had a school teacher named Mable Kouns in the first, second, third
      and I think fourth grade, yah the fourth grade too. She had two sisters one was Georgette and the other, gee I can't remember her name right now, but I'll think of it later. Anyway, Mable Kouns had two brothers
      Lucian and Walstein Kouns. They were all schoolteachers. Walstein Kouns taught the older kids and when he couldn't be there Lucian Kouns would substitute. Mable Kouns was crippled. When she was a little girl she was playing that game Crack the Whip, you know what game I mean, Crack
      the Whip with a bunch of other kids and she was on the end and when they
      cracked the whip she got hurt. It broke her hip or leg or something, anyway she was crippled. Yea, she took me home with her one day after school and she gave me my first bra, [ giggle, giggle], yea my first bra. That was at the school at Sheridan. I remember Mable Kouns she drove a little one seat Ford car, it was real cute and she looked cute
      driven' it. She got married later on and had two children."
      >I JUST THOUGHT that you would enjoy a little bit of memorabelia, from a lady who grew up in that area. I am so glad that I bought that book, I think she is still reading it!! Thank you for telling me about it, and giving my mother [82] a happy Sunday afternoon of memories.
      Sincerely, Nancy Drouillard, Michigan
