Oral Narration from Lizzie Mae Sims Harris to Michael Vaughn Sims on August 16, 1982
    
The old Vaughn home was about a mile from old Ramah Church going back to Comer Station.

The house had an open hall with [a] room on each side. On the left was the polar [sic] and a bed room on the right was bed room. one [sic] each end of front porch was a shed room68. The back porch went to a porch that led to the dining room and kitchen. From the kitchen you could go to the well for the best cold water you ever drank.

In the front yard from the gate to the house were three rows of cedar trees and out side the gate was a large Holly tree.

Grandpa and Bettie as she was call[ed] had five girls and two boys.

Aunt Cora bought the house closed in the hall and used it for [an] every day living room. Years later she sold it to a negro. The trees have been cut and the house destroyed by fire.

Every summer my mother Jane Lamar [of final[ly] called Jennie) would go to visit and Grandpa would meet us a[t] Comer with a wagon, pulled b[y] a mule Jim and a horse dexter. Grandma would put a quilt in the wago[n] for us children to sit on Mama sat on the seat with Grandpa. Each [fall] when the hogs were killed a ham was saved for each family when they came. O boy was it good ham. The ham, gravy and hot biscuits with home made butter was better than you get today.

Cold milk that has been in the well (a special bucket made for the well) was good drinking. These are things I remember as a girl a few years ago. eight[y] some years ago.
