John Franklin Ivy submitted a request to become a member.
John Franklin Ivy commented on person Warren G.(Cotton) Ivy :
 My step-father was John Franklin Ivy, the youngest of the three boys. I really did not spend very much time around Cotton and his wife Aster as Cotton did not interface with the other two brothers much. I was five when my mother married into the family. The old farm house stands out in my mind. It was the typical house with the dog trot in the middle, screened in on both ends allowing for breezes on hot days and where everyone gathered at the end of the day for meals and visiting. It did not have electricity and was lit with kerosene lamps which did not give out much light and made errie shadows on the walls. My mother had electricity installed shortly after we arrived and that was the only modern convience. The wash was done in black pots over a fire outdoors, you made your own lye soap from ashes and another ingredient, you heated the iron on the stove until it was hot enough to press clothes, Cotton was grown in the fields surrounding the house. Picking cotton was hard work and hard on your hands. My dad was very fast and it never took long for him to fill the sack. There were a lot of fishing done by the men. They would stretch their nets and set out croppie lines. They also caught cat fish by hand. I remember they caught a 60 pound catfish that was as tall as myself and a 40 lb one on the same week-end and this was done by hand. I have seen my dad be out in the water with a snake swiming toward him, he would crab the snake, treat it like a whip, pop it and throw it back on the bank dead. He killed a copper head that was between my brother and I by throwing a rock that killed the snake. Mrs. Ivy dipped snuff and she would send us out for little twigs off of bushes that she could use for dipping. I never knew how my dad received his nick name of "Buck" nor did I ever hear of how Warren became a cotton. Cotton was the quite one of the three boys. I think the other two must have always been "Hell raisers". Dad and Lonzo would drink and fight and fish together the next day.
