    Sunday morning, October 20, 2013:

    Spoke to Aunt Pearl this morning about Pop & Uncle Pete in regards to their "troubles with the law"...

    Pop thought that if he could run one load of whiskey to Nashville, that would solve all of his financial problems as...

    This was in the early 1930's and he was living with his young family in Green Hill (DeKalb County) where he was cropping shares and hauled logs part-time. Can you imagine working the fields all day and then hauling logs to McMinnville, 10 miles away, all on foot and by mule? No wonder he thought this was an easier way to make a few dollars.

    Pop got caught. Aunt Pearl tells us that it took everything he had to avoid jail and he never did that again!

    Ma told me that Pop worked as a mechanic (probably during the 1930's). At some point, Pop began selling farm implements for the Sullivan Company of McMinnville and apparently did this through the early 1950's as I remember travelling with out in the country to call on his propests and customers...

    In 1941 Pop went to Detroit. He worked for Budd Wheel through the summer of 1945. On his return he bought the log house on North Warren and the family moved there from their residence on Towles Avenue.

    Then Pop buys a taxi which he ran until late 1949 - early 1950. It is at this juncture that Uncle Pete began a felon. Uncle Pete borrows the taxi from Pop and drives to Manchester and picks-up a lady(ies) for an evening of dancing and driking. Pete is "higher than a Georgia pine", crashes the car and kills a passenger. He is convicted of manslaughter and sent to prison in 1949 when he returns home about three years later...Pop got out of the taxi business.

    It is at this point that he works full-time for Sullivan. It was 1950 and I remember Pop bought a brand-new 1950 Plymouth, "Sea Mist Green" 4-door sedan as this was the car we travelled in when he called on his clients.

    He retired in the mid-1950's and spent his life fishing, whittling and guarding his realm from an old wood chair propped-up against the garage in the backyard...

    "The P. G. (Perry Green) Potter Home"
    Built in 1875-1876 in Dibrell, Warren County, Tennessee by Kitt Swingle for Perry Green Potter.

    First, he built a large two story house, then a store, barn and a blacksmith shop.

    Aunt Pearl provided this image and tells us that Ma & Pop lived in this house between 1935 to 1937. They then moved to the "Hennessee House" on Main Street (no longer there).

    Note: Kitt Zwingle was a 2nd cousin to Ma. Pop was a grandnephew of P.G. Potter and both of whom were named after their antecedent, "Perry Green Magness".

    I really like this photo (and it is in my bedroom where I can see it every day) because Aunt Marie looks so good (see the sweet eyes?:)
    ...I never knew what Uncle Bob was thinking (but learned there is a different meaning to “switch” than the thing that turns on the lights...kidding!)
    ...Uncle Bert looks like he's actually listening to me (precious man!)
    ...I don't know WHAT Terry is looking at (man...I love terry to this day...we used to have some amazing discussions!)
    ...and my Cuz David (International Man of Mystery, Chess Instructor, Distributor of International Coinage, South Florida's Most Sought After Concierge and a cousin I haven't EVER gotten to hang out with enough) is handsome as ever as he is in rapt concentration. Is he surveying the flora and fauna of the Caney Fork? Is he wondering if his cousin Dawn will EVER shut up? Perhaps he's eyeing the food table wondering how he's going to beat Cousin Kenny to the delectables? heh:)

    I recorded our conversation sometime in 1975. Most of the interview is about her & Pop's courtship - which lasted only two months before they married.

    The tape is 12 minutes and 32 seconds long and is very weak in most spots, however you can her Ma's sweet voice, timbre and cadence... David

  • Notes 
    • Personal Testimony of Vernie Elvira Swindell Byars:

      " I was born on a farm in White County, Tenn. about a mile from the Caney Fork River in the Green Brier Bend on June 1, 1894. My father was Monroe Swindell, a miller and my mother was Rebecca Goodson, known in that section as "Aunt Becky", she was the local midwife and everyone wanted Aunt Becky when they had their babies. I had 8 sisters and 3 brothers, I was a change of life baby and some my family thought it was awful for their mother to have a baby at 50.

      My father died at the age of 56, I was 10 years old, he possibly had cancer of the stomach, there were 5 children at home at this time. My brothers were bad to tease me. Example:Upstairs we had a lot of clothing that belonged to people that died and they told me there were ghosts up there so I was afraid of everything.

      I walked 4 miles to school and went as far as the 4th grade. In the fall I would pick peas to buy my winter clothes. Our entertainments was church socials, square dances. Being the youngest child I had nieces as old as I was and it was through one of my nieces that I met my husband, she had brought him to church with her and I thought he was the handsomest man I had ever seen and never dreamed he would look at me but after that he never went with anyone else.

      He was from across the river in DeKalb County, drove a hired buggy and dressed to kill. We were married Jan. 4, 1915. We took a boat across the river and was married by a Justice of the Peace. We stayed the first night with an uncle of my husband, Uncle Harrell (Byars) and Aunt Sarah.

      They had several children and the oldest liked to play jokes, we slept on a couch that let down from the front to make a bed and they did something with the legs in front so the couch slanted and I slept behind and spent the nite hanging on the the back of the bed to keep from rolling onto Green.

      He was working for a Great Uncle at that time, Claybourne Parrish so we moved into a one room cabin to start our married life.

      My mother gave me $5.00 and some bedding. I went to the field everyday with Green. Our first child (John Claybourne) was born June 4, 1916, my mother was with me ever time a child came and I only had the Doctor one time as I had difficulty delivering Fred.

      Green made $.35 a day and after working all day he would haul logs from Smithville to McMinnville (10 miles) and walked most of the way to keep from freezing.

      We had 5 more children, Robert Lucile, Fred Swindell, Bessie Lee, Eva Pearl and Margie Sue.

      Green learned to work on cars, T models and A model along with farming. We moved from one place to another farming on the shares.

      My mother died in April 1930 at the age of 82, fell and broke her leg. August 1931 our house burned, we lived at Green Hill and gone to White County to see my family, when we returned all was gone, food for the winter and during hard times. Our friends and neighbors gave us enough to start back housekeeping, Mr. Payton Griffith sent a wagon around the county. We moved to Dibrell then Green started working for Ralston Sullivan selling gas refrigerators and radio's, later farm machinery and tombstones. He worked off and on for him for 30 years.

      In 1938 we sold all our farming stuff and moved to McMinnville, on Spring St. In 1941 we were at war with Germany and our oldest daughter lived in Detroit so Green went up there and got a job at Budd Wheels as a riveter with only a 4th grade education, he worked 1942 & 43 then came back and drove a taxi for the duration of the war. We had always rented but he saved enough to buy our house 112 N. Warren St.

      I was always raised to go to church and Sunday School and was saved August 1923 at a Methodist revival meeting at Keltonberg. If it had not been for the Lord's help during the depression we would not have made it, Green had ulcers and could not work part of the time, but the Lord always provided when I did not see how I was going to get by. He blessed us in allowing us to raise 6 children, none bad sick but we lost Fred at the age of 29 in a freak accident after going thru the war he came home and got killed at sawmill when a can of gasoline exploded.

      Green had a lung removed because of cancer in the spring of 1968, he died Dec. 13, 1968 and the age of 74."

      "Ma Byars" died April 1, 1985.
