Title The Cookie Ransom
Description Pleasant, and had helped her get in coal and wood and do other chores that needed doing. She had given them a little sack full of cookies, and they were on their way home, walking through the Denmark Cedars there. Those Denmark Cedars were up Pigeon Hollow. It used to be so dense that you couldn't see out for quite a distance. It was like going through a forest, and the road was just a trail, Charles was the first boy baby born in Fairview. He was possibly ten years old by this time, or maybe not quite that old, and Sred was two or three years younger. The Indians kidded them, when they could see how scared the boys were. They laughed and talked among themselves, and made all ifjnHg of noise as they pointed to the bag the boys were carrying. The boys handed the sack of cookies to the Indians, and with more shouting and whooping, they raced away again. The Tnrilans were gone as quickly as they had come, and the boys were able to continue on home. Many years later, when Charles was married with his own family, he used to drive to Mt. Pleasant to visit family and friends there. As they would pass a certain hill as they were going through the Denmark Cedars, he would always tell his children about Seed and himself, and the cookies given to them by their grandmother which gave them their freedom from the surrounding Indians. Information for this anecdote is recorded on a cassette tape, and I>E transcript and tape are in author's possession. 73
