Virginia Dale (Genie) House, My Grandmother

California Jo by Genie House Genie House was my Mother’s mother. She died shortly after giving birth to my Aunt Lenoit McCool, my mom’s youngest sister. She was born sometime in the late 1800, like 1890 or so, and married my grandfather, J. I. Bonner 10/7/1907. Sometimes in her teen years before marriage she wrote an epic poem. I had seen it and had a copy of it but have misplaced it.  My nephew sent me another copy the other day and I it did not want to let it get away from me this time. So I am going to publish it here and I hope that all of you will read it, but I especially hope that all my cousins and kin will read it. It is a great honor for me to publish it on this web site. I think she did a super job. I tried to leave the spelling as she had spelled it and the name Jo, spelled as she spelled it. A hundred years or so later I think it is still good reading….Pete Hester   update: Cousin Norma Bonner Elmore supplied me a picture of Genie House Bonner’s tombstone, which reads, born Aug 1876 died Mar 1920. Thanks, Norma   Update: Cousin Sandra McCool Acker enlighted me on Grandma Genie’s real name…..Harriet Emma Virginia House Bonner, born August 16, 1878, died March 21, 1920, the day after Sandra’s mother, Lenoit Bonner was born. Thanks Sandra for the update.

Cousins in Mulberry Branch Hollow

Here is the first installment of Cousins in Mulberry Branch Hollow, my third book. CC, Doug, Pete and Homer tangle with a ghost music band who lived during the civil war and they had returned as ghost to protect a treasure buried in Mulberry Branch Hollow. The banjo player spoke with a lisp which added to the humor. Let me know if you like it. I will get the balance of the story in a few day.

Here is the second book I wrote. A Fiction story about some teenagers in rural Alabama. The book is a take on Chapter Seven from my first book Cousins…It came out that I needed two different posting to get it in, probably due to the way I did it….both are different prints but it reads the same…I hope you will read it…I hope you love these teenagers as they are in another story of mine. This same group of kids are also featured in “Cousins in Mulberry Branch Hollow”, battling a ghost music band of guys who haunt Mulberry Branch Hollow,  another scary, funny type story. We will do  it later, but far now enjoy this one,…… at least I hope you will.  Pete

Cousins Final Chapter

This Chapter is pretty close to true. While the Homer in this story is a fictional character, he is based on a real person(s) as there were two black kids that we buddied with some. One of them I played with and one I went frog gigging with. But this really happened on my first furlough home. Things were beginning to change in the south, but still a lot of problems with all the marching in Selma and a few other spots. Pretty close to the absolute truth…… So, far good or bad and for whats its worth here is the Final Chapter of Cousins:    Final Chapter
