Interview Summary

Mallie Sizemore was born in 1907 at Smilax in Leslie County and tells of her grandparents' experiences with Indian raids in the area. Sizemore also indicates how her family stored vegetables they raised. She relates that at the time she was married she had seen Hyden only twice. Her family had a battery radio about 1935, and she remembers the mail being delivered on horseback. Also mentioned are several doctors who could be summoned by telephone at Wooton's Creek before the FNS came to the area, and a few older women who helped to deliver babies. One man in the neighborhood was reputed to be a witch, and Sizemore recounts his exploits.
