Black Gold, Volume 3, Number 1, 1976 Page: 5

"First, we cleared off the land where we wanted our homes to
be built. Second, all the men probed the roads from each house
seat to the main highway. Mr. Walton explained that "probint
roads" meant that they took grubbing hoes and removed stumps in
a horse trail to widen it into a road bed. "After we had built
the houses, barns, outhouses, storage houses and chicken houses,
we began painting them for two-and-a-half dollars per day."
In this house Mr. and Mrs. Walton raised seven
children.
Opposite this page are some of the tools that Mr. Walton used
during the years that he farmed.
