Aunt China and Uncle Harv

Description: Photograph of Aunt China and Uncle Harv Sparks in their home living room. Cumberland Gap, Tennessee. Narrative by Junebug Clark. China and Harv spent their lives together in this two room log cabin. No electricity. No Central Heat. No indoor plumbing, but all together they had a lot. Joe Clark’s wife, Bernice, would often tell the story of her first trip outside of Michigan, her honeymoon with Joe, and the day and night they spent with Aunt China and Uncle Harv. “It was getting late and Joe and I retired to the spare room,” Bernice would start. “Aunt Chinahanded me a coal oil lantern and a feather down quilt. As I started to close the door to their spare room, Aunt China, sensing that I fet a long way from home, bent toward me and whispered, “Now Bernice, if there is anything you need while you are here, do not hesitate to ask. Because Harv and I can show you how to get along without it.” Jb. Photo by: Joe Clark, HBSS. Signed by: Joe Clark, HBSS Clark PhotoFile: 7305-11p

[Aunt China & Uncle Harv]

Description: This is one of Joe Clark, HBSS, famous pictures. Joe and Bernice stayed with Aunt China and Uncle Harve on their Honeymoon. Aunt China told Bernice when it was time for bed, "Let me know if there is anything you need and I can tell you how to get along without it." This picture is also in Joe Clark, HBSS, Book "Back Home". Poem from the Back Home book. PEOPLE IN THE EARLY DAYS People in the early days Had such quaint and ancient ways; They’d hardly ever take a bath Or follow in the beaten path. They fought to win the wild, wild West And every man done his best To clear the land and make it free And safe to live for you and me. From ignorance they emigrated And them became educated, And then before they realized Courtly, proud and educated. Thanks to all the things they done, Thanks to each and everyone, You and me can take a bath And follow in the beaten path.
