      Well hello to you Tony and I did not know you were named after me…Wayne? Ha. Ha.
      Know you enjoyed your voyage and most likely glad to be back home as well. Hope you enjoy my blog.
      Rich

  2. Great trip, 44 days, two consecutive tours. Yes, we were ready to come home. Will be in A-J in October, 55th H. S. reunion. Hope to see you while there. Anthony Wayne

    Hey there! I’m Shannon Rhodes from Cape Girardeau, MO. I’ve really enjoyed reading your accounts of “the holler,” as I know it, at Dry Branch in Union County Illinois. My grandfather, Billie Rhodes grew up there along with the Bittles. His brother Carl still lives in the house near there, built by Jacob R. Rhodes and Margarette E. Bittle (daughter of John L.) in the 1880s. My dad, Everett has also mentioned the Hog Killin Day you remember. I’ve been to the holler a few times to fish or see the Rhodes – Bittle cemetery tucked in the woods. I came across your blog while searching for anything I could find about the history of that specific community, and was pleasantly surprised to find your writing. Please keep it coming- I can’t wait to read more!

    P.S. My grandmother, Lucille Gibson, grew up near Berryville Rd.

    Shannon, as you know there are Frick families still residing on Berryville Road or in close proximity.
