She knew every dance step from ballet to the two-step and just taught her nephew Ryan to waltz. And if you’d ever tasted her homemade rolls you’d have to vote them the best. We will miss her friendship and council, as she knew a little about everything, and was always there to listen. Most of us share artistry in her handmade quilts and crochet work. Preceding her in death were her parents William F. and Darleen McCloud, her sons Darren and Dean Hammett, brother William McCloud and sister Phyllis McCloud and husband Peter Baumgartner.

Loveland, Curtis E. 16 Sep 1905 -17 Nov 1996 OH 10 Dec 1981 pB8

Walking Trip Stirs Memories, By Fred (Bud) Willis

This story is about two men just past 70 years of age that had a desire to go back home where they grew up together.

Curtis Loveland was a cousin of mine. He lives on “Little Lost Creek” and I loved across the ridge on  “Nance Branch Holler.”

We went to school together, played ball, played the fiddle and danced. Looking back, we were real buddies. I don’t ever remember having a cross word with each other.

We planned this trip for a number of years, and something always happened that we didn’t go.

This year, we were both past 70, we though if we were going, we had better start.

Now, we’ll start this story at the “Three Forks.”

You will probably ask where is “The Three Works”? When we were kids growing up, every eight-year-old knew. It was about three miles east of Bruner on Highway 14 to DD Highway, then 1 1/2 miles south on blacktop DD.

Now the “Three Forks” has quiet a history, There was a skirmish between the Union Soldiers and the Bushwhackers. The two soldiers names were Adams and Maggard.

Now going south to the “Three Forks”, you take your right hand road which will take you down to the Mines or Diggins as some call it.

This is on the Lost Creek side, on down a crooked ridge to the Flat Rock crossing. It is at the mouth of two hollars and it covers about a quarter of an acre from just flat rock. A good place to salt horses and cattle.

Now, below this is a waterfall, and cattle and horses couldn’t cross for half a mile. The banks were from six to eight feet high on either side. Their Little Lost Creek emptied into Big Lost Creek about where Curt lived, flowing on a crooked course and emptying into Swan Creek at what is known as the Grandpa Burkhart place.

Now the middle prong of the Three Forks has been changed somewhat. Mr. and Mrs. Ford live her. We left out car here and started walking.

Oh, it was a beautiful day. The leaves had fallen and it was just like walking on a carpet.

Looking south from the forks, you are looking over two or three thousand acres, and not a soul living there. This ridge runs rather straight - with a few crooks and turns - till you get right on top.

This is the Davis Holt. My Dad told me some miners came there prospecting years ago and dug this hole 100 feet deep and found no ore.

One time a neighbor and I went squirrel hunting and heard a dog howl that wasn’t ours. We went on to the Davis hole. There was a big old black and tan hound and the bottom  of the hole which was about 30 feet deep then. Now it has caved in more, and it’s only about 20 feet deep.

The dog belonged to a neighbor. We got a piece of barbed wire and a hook and let it down to where the dog was. It had a collar on that the dog tired his best to hook that collar onto the wire.

He finally got it hooked just a little and we pulled him out. He had been there about a week. He tried to thank us for our help. He treed a squirrel.

On down the hill we went, across the old Loveland place to the Willie farm, from there to Swan Creek, just across the creek to the Hall blacksmith shop where we could hear the ring of Uncle John Hall’s anvil on a still morning.

The left fork had several sharp turns and curves. Following this form takes you down the east side of the Henry farm, down a big hill to the Uncle Billy Keltner Place. Della Johnson lives there now.

Sugar Camp Holler runs into Swan Creek at the old Keltner camp and Post Office. Peter Branch runs into Swan Creek at the same place, coming in from the east.

Now, back to the Three Forks. This was a meeting place for all fox hunters in that part of the country. Here are the names of some of the hunters: Adams, Applegate, Burks, Hull, Holt, Hall, Johnson, Keltner, Nix, Loveland, Harvill, Morrison and Willis.

I know that we don’t remember all their names. I’m sure you can think of many more.

I can  remember a lot of fox hunting stories. Here is one.

Jack Adams and my Dad (George Willis) were real good friends who worked and hunted together. Jack had two hounds, one black and one spotted. He kept the black one tied up all the time.

My Dad asked him, “Jack, why do you keep Blacky tied?”

He said, “She sucks eggs, and you know as soon as that spotted dog hears a hen cackle, she goes to the hen house and gets the egg and carried it to old Blackie.”

You know, fox hunters are a lot like fisherman - sometimes the big ones get away.

Another thing I remember at the Three Forks - wild hogs were plentiful in those days, and they had a big mud hole where they would wallow in the summer time.

I’ve seen 10 to 20 big hogs run out of there when anyone would pass.

Now, it had been forty years since I had been in these hills. The virgin timber has been cut except for a few old squirrel dens were left. Every one of them had a story for us, like killing a squirrel or snake or an acorn fight and just a lot of things.

We passed the place where out uncle was killed, Here is the story of that accident.

It was on a Sunday morning and the preacher was coming home with Aunt Nildia Loveland. She got the boys, Ben and Bertie our real early to kill a few squirrels for dinner. They shot a squirrel and it lodged in a tree.

Ben went to his brother’s place for an axe to cut the tree down. While he was gone, Bertie was standing on a hollow stump watching the squire.

He dropped the shotgun down in the hollow stump, and it went off. The whole charge went into his stomach.

He lived till about eleven o’clock that night.

I can remember Ben and Ida Mae coming after my Dad and Mother to come and help them. They were screaming till you could hear them a mile.

The whole neighborhood was shocked. That stopped Sunday hunting for several years.

After forty years, those growing up days are still in my mind.
