Floyd County, Kentucky 1920's
I always knew that my mother's mother was Salley Howard, now I know which Sally Howard. My mom was Hazel Patrick b.1918 Floyd County, KY d.1993. She was the daughter of Buck Patrick (son of Commodore Patrick + Cynthia Patton) + Sally Ann Howard (daughter of Samuel Howard + Rebecca Wireman). My mother used to tell me stories about going around the county helping her ‘Grandmother’ (an older woman maybe a great aunt?) “doctoring” up people, delivering babies and helping out. Does this story sound familiar to any one? Her Grandmother was a tough old bird, part Indian?, who at one time had supervised the amputation of her own foot! My Mother would fetch things for her. This would be in the mid 1920’s. I’ll be putting this story in my family tree and I would like to attach it to the right ’Grandma’ - Howard - Patrick - Patton - Wireman.
