~ EVELYN OCTAVE MULLIS CAMPBELL
"Granny Arkie"
My great grandmother

Note: I remember my "Granny Arkie" when I was a kid. She enjoyed being with our family and we took her to a few nearby places. From what I recall, she never traveled more than 30 miles from her birthplace. She enjoyed genealogy, and how the different families in the community were all related. When she was a young girl getting her schooling, she would read at home while sitting on a long log with one end of the log burning in the large fireplace. This kept the family warm and provided more lighting. Her father was a CSA of the Civil War and was a prisoner of war in Louisville, Jefferson, Ky and at Camp Douglas in Chicago. These camps were living hell. Being a distiller, he made medicine for the soldiers.
