Subject: Re: David and Sarah
I'm glad you e-mailed when you did. My father-in-law has been down here to GA to visit this week and
with his help, we finally figured out which Frank Mullins it was who Dave was living with or was adopted
by. My father-in-law said he had always heard that Dave had left home at an early age for whatever
reasons and was working around the area on different farms, but that he kind of settled with Frank and
his wife. We finally know now that it was Francis "Frank" Mullins and Sarah Jane Hubbard who
raised Dave Maggard. Francis "Frank" was a son of Joseph M "Little Joe" Mullins and Mahala Shepherd.
Frank's brother John R Mullins was my mother-in-law's grandfather (her mother's father). Soooo...my
mother-in-law's grandfather's brother raised my father-in-law's grandfather. We even found in the 1900
Wise Co VA Census where Frank lived 7 houses away from where Dave and Sarah Leah lived. Here's

I'm not sure how you'd cite the source on the information except that my father-in-law had actually known
these people during his lifetime and we just never had put two and two together. If you need to, just use
my name or his as your source and I'll field any questions anyone has. Let me know if you need
anything else Roxie.

Here's a wonderful story written by one of Dave Maggard's granddaughters.
You might like to include it with your notes since it's unpublished and very hard to come by among our
family members. You're welcome to use it on your website too if you want. I was able to add quite a lot of family history this week since my husband's parents came to visit us. I'll get it all compiled for you and send as soon as I can. ENJOY!
"My Childhood Memories"
by Nadine Maggard Mobley (unpublished, written in the late 1980's?)
This story is dedicated to my dear sweet Grandmother, Leah, of whom I have many fond childhood
memories, while living in the mountains of Southwest Virginia.
My story begins with my very first memory and involved Grandmother. I lived very near her and visited
often. I still recall the big spicy apple sauce cakes, piled high with layers of homemade apple butter
between the layers. These were always on a huge dining room table, along with homemade jellies, jams,
pickles, and other delicious surprises from her kitchen. A large white tablecloth covered this food and
remained on the table from meal to meal.
In Grandmother's kitchen, stood a large cabinet with a container on one side which held a 24-pound sack
of flour. Every morning, a large oval hand-carved biscuit bowl was placed under the container which had
a sieve in the bottom, and flour was cranked out for the morning biscuits. (I am the proud owner of this
lovely wooden bowl and display it in my own kitchen today.)
In the Fall, pumpkin strips were strung on string and Grandmother would hang it behind the wood-burning
cook stove to dry. I have never seen anyone else do this, or cook it with a large piece of pork seasoning
as she did. There were 25-gallon (or larger) crock jars filled with kraut, pickled corn, beans, and mixed
pickles. I can still taste the pickled cabbage stalks as they came out of the icy brine in Winter. These
were stored under the house along with hundreds of delicious canned vegetables, fruits, and root
vegetables, all raised by my dear Grandparents.
There is one incident that I shall always remember. Grandma was making grape jelly and as usual, I was
more help than she needed and should have been outside playing. A jar broke and I was sprayed with
hot jelly. I can tell you....hot jelly does not wipe off. We were both pretty excited, but fortunately I was not
burned....only red for a while.
I remember many other things, like seeing her stooping and plucking the feathers from a chicken, or
tending to the fresh pork my Grandfather, Dave, had slaughtered. Grandpa slaughtered for everyone, as
he was sort of a butcher, and I remember my Uncles Earl and Taze helping him.
I went to church with my Grandparents. They were hard shell or Primitive Baptist and didn't have ordained ministers as we have today, but men who were farmers, coal miners, or whatever their occupation, who had received the call of God, and would preach on designated weekends. We would
stand by the side of Highway 23 and wait for a ride on Saturday mornings to Bold Camp or Flat Gap, or
wherever the meetings were to be held. The meetings were not an hour of church service and go home,
but were all day Saturday and Sunday.
The dear people who lived nearby always cooked huge meals and at noon, everyone had a place to eat
and rest before resuming the afternoon of preaching. Other times, everyone brought covered dishes and
all put together for dinner on the ground. If you have never been to one of these, you have missed a very
special affair. I loved my Grandmother very deeply. I was born in the house she lived in nearly all of her
life. The house is still standing and owned by a family named Shockey.
There was a time when she gave me a swat on my hand for something I had done to my late sister
Josephine, and I was deeply hurt to think she would punish me. I would stay away for a few days, but
soon got over the swat and hurried back, afraid I might miss out on something exciting.
At the age of seven, I started to school in the first grade. In my home town of Pound, Virginia, there were
no buses and very few cars. No matter what the weather, everyone walked to school. I really looked
forward to going to school, as this was time spent with my favorite Uncle Lloyd. He was in High School
and well known for his basketball career. He was one of few people mentioned several years later as an
outstanding athlete of Southwest Virginia.
At noon, Uncle Lloyd and I would sit on a fence with our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or biscuits,
and other times, a "streak of lean" between biscuits. I knew I was someone special to get to eat with
Christopher Gist's High School basketball star.
Uncle Lloyd also tried to teach me to chew tobacco. He would send me to the store for a plug of Brown
Mule Apple, Beechnut, or the like. My reward for going was a big chew. I tried it several times, but I just
never could get the hang of chewing without turning green.
My Grandparents had ten children, raised eight to be grown, and I have fond memories of all of them.
Charlie, the oldest, and Vollie, the third son, married sisters Alta and Arlena Fleming. Vollie and Arlena
were my dear Mom and Dad. The two couples had a total of 15 children. My cousins Cleo and Margaret
(known as Margie) were about my age and we grew up together just like sisters. We are double cousins
and to this day are very close.
Margie lives in Orlando, Florida, and I visit her often. We write and talk on the phone many times a year.
Cleo lives in California and we exchange birthday and Christmas cards.
I also keep in touch with Amos, another cousin and brother to Cleo and Margie. He still lives in Pound,
Virginia, where we all grew up.
My Dad along with my Grandparents, Dave and Leah, Willard who was the second son of Leah, and his
wife, Emma, their son Willard Jr., Taze, Oscar, and Earl, are all buried in Wright Cemetery in Pound,
Virginia. It is a peaceful knoll covered with trees and grass, and deer tracks can be seen at times. Mr.
Henry Mullins, whose grandfather was John Wright, keeps the cemetery beautiful. Amos takes flowers for me often and decorates our loved ones' graves.
It would be so wonderful to know all of my cousins, but Uncle Charlie's children are the ones I know best.
I try to keep in touch and would love to hear from any of them wherever they might live in this wonderful
country that we are so priveleged to live in.
I want to tell you a little about my Grandfather Dave as I remember him. He was a big man, standing
about 5 foot 11 inches. he had blonde hair, blue eyes, fair complexion, and a mustache.
He had a nickname for every one of his sons and his grandchildren. I must confess to mine....I was
called Little Bumble Bee. I'm sure it was because I was never quiet or stayed in any given place very
long. Grandpa had a grocery store, which he lost during the Depression, but I have fond memories of the
pickle jars, cracker barrels, and the many things of the 1920's and 1930's as they were so openly displayed. On one side of the store was groceries, and on the other side was clothing, colorful bolts of
material, cotton for quilts, shoes and the like. In the center was a large pot-bellied stove where everyone
stopped to visit whenever they came for supplies, or to catch up on the news. In the back of the store was a huge kitchen, where my Grandmother cooked some of her goodies. I liked to eat then, and still do, and guess that is why I remember all of the cooking places and asociate them with many good aromas.
Grandfather later farmed and raised sweet potatoes, peanuts, corn, and many other crops. In the Fall,
after the crops were laid by, he killed hogs for people, and for himself. In December when the snow would come, we enjoyed sitting around my Grandparent's fireplaces popping corn, putting potatoes in the hot ashes to bake, or just enjoying the blaze that kept us warm.
I left Pound, Virginia, at the age of seventeen, but returned several times to visit my grandparents. They
lived to see my two children and became great grandparents. I miss then very much, but the many
memories they left with me is worth all the wealth in this world.
I've researched many avenues, but cannot find anything on the background of Grandpa Dave Maggard. I
do recall he was an orphan, raised by Mr. Frank Mullins. I would appreciate hearing from any of my
relatives that can help me with any history about him.
grandma Leah Short Maggard's history can be traced in the book entitled "The Stallard Connection." My
brother, Frankie, Earline my sister, and I already have a copy of this book. I am writing this and the
history of her family to be added to a book, if the Stallard's decide to print another one, and until then, we can add this to our present book.
I am sharing this with all of you and only wish you could have known Grandma and Grandpa Maggard as
I did. I thought this story might give each and every one of my relatives a beautiful mental picture of the
beautiful lives they lived, and the love they had for us."
