User submitted facts and corrections:

  • Add fact: "historical church" was told to me to be called "The Immaculate Conception Church" on main street, and was cared for by Miss Nannie Gary as best she could. The church was built as answer to prayer. Would be helpful for viewers to know name of church. I lived 3 houses down from it during my youth. Was only Catholic Church in county for years. Check Catholic Newspaper archives for interview by (still living) Nancy West.
