For some years I have been actively seeking to learn more about the men who were killed in action during a war. I am looking for name, date, place, battle, etc of each soldier. Would love to also get a photograph of each soldier.. if someone in your family died during military service please consider sharing their information so they can be honored.

If all of us go to grocery store at the same time, there will be shortages!
If all of us need medical care at the same time, there will be shortages!
If all of us buy cars at the same time, there will be shortages!
If all of us do anything at the same time, there WILL BE shortages!
If all of us pray at the same time, God WILL ANSWER!

Most folks don’t know the pain and anguish handicapped children had growing up before the many social programs of today. My sister was born without a soft palate and her speech was difficult to understand. Her second grade teacher mocked her in front of the class... hence the mill management became involved as daddy demanded Emma Duncan be fired! Sara had surgery and attended speech lessons.. nothing helped until the speech lady suggested Sara take up singing. Roy Whitt gave us his 78 record collection and mother went to Kelly’s jeweler and purchased a record player. I am sure we entertained the neighborhood with our singing of the old hymns mixed with a little bit country..

Did you have any New Year superstitions that had to be observed? My dad had to get up early to go to grandma’s house... she firmly believed a man had to enter her house early on the new year day!

Recipe for Fried Apple Pies
Ingredients:

1 pot of cooked apples
sugar to your taste
spices ( cinnamon, cloves, apple pie spice) to your taste
peanut oil for frying.
How to make it :

You can use dried fruit or fresh apples. You use your own judgement on how many apples to cook, to how many pies you want to make.
I peel,core,& slice my apples. Put them in a sauce pan with very little water & cook slowly. The apples will make some juice their self. If you get too much liquid you can add a little cornstarch to the sugar to thicken. DON”T

ADD The sugar until the apples has cooked.
Take off the heat and let it get cooled off. You don’t want it to be warm, it will mess the dough up.

Sometimes I make my on crust, but most of the time I just use can biscuits. I get the store brand, they work best. DON”T get the buttermilk biscuits, get the home style. The name brand usually has kosher salt, it will make little holes in the crust when you fry them. So the store works best.

Flour you pastry sheet, put a biscuit on it and roll out as if you’re make a crust.Dampen the edge of the dough so it will seal off better. Place about 1 1/2 teaspoon of filling in the middle. It really depends on how much you roll the crust. You don’t want it thick or too thin to tear when you’re frying them. Dampen edge with water using your finger tip.

Fold over the crust, take a fork and press around the edge, turn over and repeat the edge again.

I use an electric skillet with peanut oil. Lay your pie in the skillet when you think the oil is hot enough. When you lay the pie in, it should start to sizzle around the edges. Fry it until golden brown, turn & fry on the other side.

I usually have my skillet temp. around 300 degrees, but the temp can vary on different skillet, just keep a close eye, & don’t burn them.
Lay on paper towels to drain. I sprinkle with a sugar & cinnamon mixture in a salt shaker. Then enjoy!! Every time I take these pies for a get together, whether home or church, these pies disappear fast.

Pick a century and think about your ancestors and what they survived in order for you to be where you are! During the settlement of the Pelzer area by the Wilson family, the upcountry saw civil war as tories and patriots fought each other! The daily struggle was brutal!

Saw a comment about Thomas Edison doing work or research in Pelzer. Lost the comment place so I will put it here. By the time General Electric installed the turbines and did research using Mill number four as a test bed, Edison has already been forced out of the company. I can find no historical record of him ever coming to Pelzer or being included in the research.. if you know otherwise please inform everyone..
