                                As told by Annie Laura Sinclair


    Wayman Sinclair made the best "medical" whiskey in the area. Sold it for medicine but was arrested by revenuers who took him to prison in Hodgensville, Kentucky. 

    He was a trustee and was allowed to go home through the week and run his sawmill and went to prison on weekends. He got permission to do this because the neighbors went to the officials and told them that they needed him to be operating his mill since he was the only miller in the area. He finally got a Presidential pardon, now in the possession of Docie Skaggs. He got caught because the geese and hogs were drinking from the stream near his mill and got drunk. Grandmother told of seeing the geese walking around with their heads dragging the ground.

                         Transcript of tape recording done by Marion Wilcox


Grandmother Crabtree, at the age of 72, reminiscing with her first grandchild, Robert Wade Crabtree.      The first time I met your grandfather (Wilbur Roscoe Crabtree) he and his father came to our house to buy a sheep for a big dinner … they used to have big dinners and they always had to have a mutton; my father (Wayman Sinclair) raised sheep and had quite a few. I thought he was a good looking little boy, he wasn’t really grown, but that was the first time I met him. I guess I was ten. He was a little bit older than I was. We went to school together. In school I didn’t pay much attention to him because all the girls were stuck on him that were older than I was. He was very good looking, he was handsome … a very good looking boy. They were all struck on him so I never paid any attention because they were older. Until one day he asked me to go with him to Columbia to a fair. Of course that was a long ways in a buggy because they had to go to town and hire a buggy from the livery stable and a horse. That was in the adjoining town from us and it took quite awhile to drive that twenty miles to the fair. I was 13 then. I felt very highly honored because there were other girls in the school who were really struck

on him. I never will forget that day at the fair. The horse had been used to wearing a collar and that day had to wear breast straps … it was a better looking harness you know … and he wouldn’t pull up the hill so I had to walk up the rocky hill because the horse wouldn’t pull the buggy. That was my first date. Four years after that we got married. I was 17 and Wilbur was 21. We married Dec. 26, 1906, my father’s birthday. I always told my father that it was a Christmas gift to him .. a son-in-law.

     Wilbur’s father’s name was Joe Crabtree and he came from Virginia when he was a young man and settled here and his mother was Martha Susan JOHNSON … Tom Johnson’s daughter. She had 3 brothers … George, Sam and Rob. I always thought very much of her brothers. They’d come to our house and spend the night once in awhile.      Wilbur’s grandfather died before I knew him (Jan. 1880) and Mrs. Crabtree’s mother died before he was grown. I didn’t know too much about

Wilbur’s mother’s people because he (Joseph) came here and left his people, until we heard about this Lotta Crabtree’s estate which was advertised in the paper. We tried to get in touch with that, but we didn’t have any success with it. We found the old family bible and found where grandfather’s brother, John Asberg or John Alfred, where he had gone to the California gold mines and the last we heard he had struck gold and became very wealthy. He had 1 child. We never heard from him after that. Lotta’s father was John A. Crabtree but she didn’t know what the middle name was. She didn’t know

anything about her father because he died when she was small. She would dance for the gold miners and they would throw gold at her feet when she was a child. Then her mother took her to England. Her estate was worth 5 million dollars and it was to go to her husband’s family if they didn’t find any relatives on her father’s side .. and not knowing her father, she didn’t

know anything about him or his family.

     Wilbur’s mother, Martha Susan Johnson, was a daughter of Tom Johnson. Wilbur had one sister, Lizzie Crabtree, who married Campbell Miller, and 2 brothers. Wes, who was wounded during the Spanish American War and went to the Philippine Islands, worked in a post office in the Philippines for a long time and died and was buried there in the national cemetery. One brother married Ethel Fawcett …. His younger brother, Lester.

     Wilbur’s mother lived with us for 4 years (1925-1929) after her husband died. She was one of the greatest cooks and a great talker. She never could give you a recipe. You’d ask for a recipe and she’d say "well, I just put a little of this and a little of that" or  "it calls for a cup full, but I always add a little more". She made the best catsup you’d ever want to eat, but you could never make it like she did because she made everything by guess. She was a great person for entertaining. The mailman would never pass but what she’d take him out a piece of pie or a piece of chicken or any time the little colored children would pass on their way to school she’d always go to the door and ask if they wanted a piece of pie or apple or something.

She just always wanted to do something for somebody. Wilbur’s father was one of the jolliest men there ever was. He loved pranks and jokes and good times. He was a jolly old fellow. Wilbur’s parents are buried at Liberty Cemetery at the church out near Burdick in Taylor County. My mother never did want to be called Granny. She thought it sounded too old and she never wanted to be any older than what she was. She was born in Adair County … near Columbia. Her name was HARDING and her mother was a BENNETT before she married John Harding. He was an old soldier, a very fine

looking old fellow. I can remember a picture some of the family has of him in his uniform with his long beard and just typical old picture … very straight and nice looking. That was my grandfather. My mother (Mary Elizabeth Hardin(g)), married when she was 17. Her husband (Wayman Sinclair) was 10 years older. He was quite a carpenter and a farmer, he was quite good at anything he did. There wasn’t much he didn’t do. When I was a child he bought (land) in Taylor County and built a home practically by himself, just with help of the boys. They came from Adair County; they first set up housekeeping at Plum Point where he ran a grist mill and a saw mill. He also had a farm there. He used to talk so much about how he wished

he could stay there because it was such good bottom land. He moved to Cane Valley and bought a farm there. This was where I was born and we lived there until I 4 years old and then we moved to Taylor County where he rented for a year. At the place he rented there was a big chestnut orchard. We picked up enough chestnuts to buy our winter shoes and we thought it was the grandest thing … bought the old homeplace when I was 5 years old and we were raised there. The house belongs to a nephew now. Father built a home .. a nine room house which was considered a very large house at that time.

     Mother was a good manager. She raised geese, ducks turkeys and chickens. We’d always have to pick the geese. I remember as a child having to hold the goose’s head to keep it from biting her while she picked the feathers. She made feather beds for every bed on the place and when the children married she always had a feather bed to give them that she had

picked from her own geese. Those feather beds are still good after 50-70 years. Mother wove cloth from the wool of the sheep. My father had a flock of sheep and we would shear the sheep in the spring of the year, wash the wool and pick all the burrs by hand. Then we’d hang it out on the fence to dry and wash it. You’d think it was awfully dirty, but it would wash as white as snow. Then we’d card the wool and spin the yarn. I’ve run the spinning wheel many a day until the calves of my legs would hurt so bad when night came … just back and forth spinning the wool rolls. The rolls made the yarn spinning it into thread and then we’d take the thread and make the floss and we did all that. Mother would make jeans from the wool floss to make the men’s suits. It was stiff wool goods. She made their own suits. There were 6 boys in the family to make suits for, and father and 5 girls, and she made linsey to make our dresses out of. It seemed to me most of our

linsey dresses were red. I don’t know whether mother just liked red or what, but there was more red than any other color.

     The girls knitted men’s socks … that was the way we got our "spend" money. We knitted socks to sell. I never liked knitting because my sister Docie could knit so much faster. She could knit a sock a day. She could make so much money out of it, but I couldn’t. It’d take me a week to knit a sock; I was so slow at it so I never liked knitting. I took up sewing and I sewed for the neighbor’s children and did my own dressmaking from the time I was 10 years old … I just loved to sew. Mother would show me how to cut out the material.      We had wonderful times back then … we didn’t have to go somewhere to have a good time. There were 11 of us but when I was growing up there were 8 of us at home. We played checkers and if we got cross or argued about it, Mother would take the board and throw it in the fire and we would have to

make another checker board out of big wide poplar plank. We weren’t allowed to play checkers or games on Sunday … that was my father’s belief. He was a great hand at reading the Bible and he would explain it to us so much that he could remember anything that you wanted to find in the Bible. He could tell you where to find it. We’d play the organ and sing and the neighbors would gather in; our house was the place where everybody would come for a good time. We had a grand time. On Easter we’d always take eggs and go to the cliffs and cook eggs out and that was grand to us … just to cook eggs.

We had lots of fun and we’d gather mountain pink … what they call mint now. We were all taught to work. Everybody had to be up and ready for breakfast from the baby on up when breakfast was called. Mother built the fire in the stove and I set the table and helped mother get breakfast. Docie would get everybody up and make their beds before breakfast and Effie would dust and sweep before breakfast. When breakfast was over we were ready to go milk. Girls would always do the milking. Two girls would wash dishes and 2 milk the cows. By 8:00 everything was through … all the house clean and done.

Then we’d knit socks or piece quilts and we had the day before us. It was always just about daybreak when we’d get up. It took longer to get breakfast because you had to build a fire in the stove with wood and wait until it got hot. Mother had to make cornbread and biscuits both evry morning because Gordon and Docie wouldn’t eat biscuits. After we all left home except Gordon … he was the youngest … she’d bake him a hoe cake and her a little pan of biscuits every morning for breakfast.

     We did our work in pleasure and fun. I remember one time I was out with my brother fixin’ to fertilize in the watermelon hills and we were carrying it in big coffee sack aprons and he proceeded to get a snake ( the boys weren’t afraid of snakes) and put it in my apron. I didn’t know it until I reached in and I had a snake in my hand. They did quite a bit of pranks on

each other. People did more pranks than they do now. They don’t take pranks now like they did then. If the girls went out somewhere after dark, it did the boys good to put a sheet over them and scare them. They did a heap of ghost telling then and people really believed in ghosts. It’d just scare us to death to see someone with a sheet over them. It was simple fun but we had a lot of pleasure in it when we were growing up.      (Ray) It was his first automobile and something rare then. He went home on Saturday with his car and went back on Monday to get his car license and he turned over and was killed instantly. He was 21 years old when he got killed. He is buried in Lone Valley and Effie and my mother and father are

buried there.

     Our name was spelled SINCLAIR. There was some scandal of the oil Sinclair and she didn’t approve of it and that was one thing that caused the children to change their name. They were teased in school and Mr. R. L. Hill said that St. Clair meant the same thing and he thought it was a prettier name anyhow and why didn’t they spell it that way. So from that day on, there were 4 of the boys who always spelled their name that way, but Gordon stayed with the original spelling.

(In this paragraph, she has made some mistakes in remembering her father’s ancestors)  Father was Scotch-Irish … came from Virginia. His father was named Ham Sinclair (this is Phillip Hamilton, his brother, Joel was his father) and

lived in Columbia and his mother was Matilda Sullivan .(Alzira/Alvira CURRY was his mother .. I think her name was Matilda Alvira and she married William Sullivan after Joel died. Annie may have only remembered her as a Sullivan)  They were raised around Bear Wallow which is close to Columbia. They were great Baptists then and my grandfather was a Baptist Preacher and also a potter. I don’t remember him … that was before my time. They would have foot washings and I’ve heard my mother talk about going to foot washings many a time. They’d take their shoes off and one man would wash

another man’s feet. There was a ceremony that went with it just like a Baptism. That’s what we called foot washing Baptists. Mother and Father were Baptists and I was too until I married a Methodist and joined the Methodist Church. When the children were little we went to Soul’s Chapel out in the country. We didn’t think anything about going 5 miles to church in a wagon. We also went to Lone Valley Church. That’s the church that my Father and Mother and some of the neighbors did most of the building.
