[Mrs. Fannie Bray]
By the time he had his wish made, of course wishing to find his mules, she said, “Ah, my boy, you have waited too late to come to Granny, for your mules are all ready dead.” She gave him the direction to where they were and as she said they were in the bog with their necks broken. Because of their chained they did not have a chance to get out and save their lives.
This incident is also told in which the same Granny plays an important part. Twenty-five years ago, Anthony Powell and wife had a little boy about two years of age who wandered off from the camp ground of the family and some neighbors who had gone fishing. The child was lost three days and nights. The telephone switch boards were thrown open; free transportation was available; everything was done in order that everybody could hear the call for help and respond. Thousands of people joined the march they came from all the surrounding country.
