Map and Letter 1933

   This B&W photo was taken at Scott Hill Farm in the winter of (1938/39?).  This Photo is taken from the road looking South South West with the hill in the background.  This part of the hill is known as the "Hollow".  There has been a pond at the foot of the hill from 1960-1998.  The Maple tree with the swing hanging from a limb is still standing and usually has a swing hanging from the same branch in the summers through 1998. The top of the tree was damaged by the fire.  A fence post of the garden fence is seen in the foreground on the left.  This color photo was taken sixty years later on 27 March 1998 at Scott Hill Farm. The camera location and angle was similiar to the photo above.  The tree is the same with a newer swing hanging from its limb.  The top has grown back after the fire and the trunk is much thicker.  The child is Alan Richard Scott.  The contour of the hill in the background can be used to compare the two pictures, although it is considerably hidden by a house in each case.

The old house burned on a Sunday afternoon in June 1941. The Walter Lee Scott family had moved to Brandenburg in the winter of 1933 so Walter Lee could take the job as Meade County Sheriff in January 1934. The house was occupied by tenants between 1934 and 1941. A 14 year old boy died in an upstairs bedroom during the fire. Newspaper article about the fire.

Use apples, strawberries, or grapes.  Clean the fruit. Put it in a glass or stone jar.  If juice doesn't come to the top, add water till it does.  Cover so flies don't get in.  Let set 3-5 days till juice separates from pulp.  Strain juice out.  Add enough water to equal the original measurement.  Add 3 lbs sugar to a gallon of juice.  Return to jar, cover and set 2 weeks or more.  Walter Charles Scott
