Denton Higdon of North Carolina writes that Uncle Paul dipped snuff and loved to raise a garden. He left Franklin, North Carolina, in the early 1940s for North Brookfield, Massachusetts, where he retired as a mill worker. One of my highlights as a youngster was when Uncle Paul and Aunt Callie would come to visit.
