When I was a small girl growing up in Bell Co, my grandpa use to tell the story of the woman who took sick in town.She lived in a house and had been there for days runnning a high fever and close to her death.
On the other end of town was a doctor,a little girl went to him and asked him to come with her, her mother was awfully sick.So the dr. got his bag and followed her to the house ,where they entered. She pointed to a door and said in there. The dr. walked in to find the woman in bad shape. She was so relieved to see the doctor.And then she asked, how did you know I was sick and he responded a child came and got me.She sat up and said the girl in the picture on my dresser and he replied yes, she told him her daughter had been dead for several years.And he replied , well today she has saved your life.
How much of this is the truth I do not know,For this was told to me over 50 yrs. ago
