Remembering Our Town Roads and Prairie: One road in particular the “Hickory County Road,” known as the “Luffy Homer Place.” At the end of the road, the tombstone is the grave of Sofie A. Homer. She passed away in 1920, at the age of 26 years. She was laid to rest a few feet from her parent’s house. This was their Indian Allotment.
If this place could talk, it would reveal the time a couple lived nearby. After they got married, some kissing cousins was going to chivaree (means – a noisy mock serenade to a newly married couple) them. It didn’t quite work because my uncle shot over their head knocking splinters in the wall.
In the thirties, a car was stolen from Marvin Dale. From all accounts, Marvin had no watch dog. The car was pulled out of the barn with a team of mules because the tracks of the mules were still visible. The same road was the main road to Lehigh Town.
What a town doctor saw, who lived on the “Hickory Hill Road.” That is another future story of him and his family.
