R. P. Roulston kept bees and had a blacksmith shop out back. When people got sick or hurt, they came to him because he had studied medical books. They used the stars to give medicine by. R. P. knew all about the moon and constellations, and used to point them out to the grandchildren. He loved music and books. Usually the school teachers for Wildcat Hollow stayed at his house.
