You are right Swanelle Spradley, I do not remember. But, please, tell me about this “friendship”. When and how?

Though my family only lived there about two and a half years the place is seared in my heart. My Mother’s sister, Ruby Stermer and her family were there as well as her mother and daddy and brother. Her brother, E.J. Smith, graduated with Dorothy Bellamy who died very recently. I appreciate being in touch with Jeanene. I see Billy Zack Bailey’s name on her. He would never remember but he was my friend. He might remember LaVelle Stermer my cousin. Hope to come through one more time.

To Suzanne…yes, the Battle of Pease River was fought across Pease River from Medicine Mound…near the town of Margaret in Foard County. There is a Texas Historical Marker near the site. A new book has been published “Myth, Memory and Massacre” by Tom Crum and Paul H. Carlson that is very good. The authors researched a tremendous amount of material and basically have turned the “battle” into a “massacre”… totally changing the story. The story was embellished to promote the political career of Sul Ross., and thus became the history we know. I highly recommend the book!

Saw a episode of Country Reporter about the museum. Great work and I hope to get up and visit sometime.

Just returned to the Metroplex from a WONDERFUL Medicine Mound Reunion this weekend. Great to see old friends and old friends’ parents (too few of them remain, including my wonderful mom Edith Chandler, almost 94!) A BIG thank you to the people who make it possible (Jeanene, Tayna, James, Cheryl and others and especially to Myna Potts who dreamed the dream!

Some of the best years of my life were when I lived out by the Mounds.

My dad Woodsy Wayborn Holden was one of 13 children born and raised in Medicine Mound Texas. I remember hearing of Pill Hill, can anyone tell me what Pill Hill was?

Have so many happy memories at Medicine Mounds. My grandfather, Sandy Ferguson, taking me to Hick’s store for a 5-cent treat and to watch the ‘doodle bug’ go through. The merry-go-round and May-pole at school just to name a few.d

614 Hirsch ave. Runnemede, N J 08078 Oh, what a mass of lovely memories. 17 years of tramping thru that gumbo dirt, climbing the “mountains”, watching the “Doodle Bug” go thru town, 5 cent balone Sandwiches hand made by Uncle Ira himself, My Dad running a “Filling Station” from and living in the old bank building. Ah, as Archie Bunker would say, “those were the days”.

My Ggrandfather and Ggrandmother lived within sight of Medicine Mound when they were teenagers. They were George Woodson Easley and Della Jeanette Whitton. I have some stories about the area and will look them up.

Do you know of a battle between the Texas Rangers and the Comanches (I think) near Medicine Mound?
