1970's after my dad cleaned up for a family decoration
  • Sunday, August 11 was observed as Decoration Day by the families of J.B. Galloway, Henry M. Walker ad Isaac Ford in a small family cemetery near the farm of Clyde W. Galloway in Sulphur Springs
  • Earlier this summer a lot of work was done to clean up the cemetery and a fence bought to put around the ground. The Gathering of families with a picnic lunch at the home of Clyde W. Galloway was the finale of all the work done to pay respect to the relatives buried there. After lunch everyone walked to the cemetery and a look at the graves which were decorated with flowers. A look at the graves was like a page in history, bringing back memories and recollections of those buried there from Civil War days to early 1900's
  • Attending the decoration were: Clyde W. Galloway, Ala Galloway Shipley, Mrs. Evelyn S. Darnell Big Stone Gap, Va., Forrest, David, Pam and Brent Boring, Lois Draper, Mr and Mrs Elmer Ford, Mr. and Mrs. Otis Mitchell, Mr and Mrs Arthur Earley, Mr and Mrs Fred Ford, Mrs Lula Mae Deakins Short, Monnie W. Brown, Jess Walker Kingsport, Mr and Mrs Herbert Walker, Mr and Mrs R.J. Walker, Mr and Mrs. H.M. Walker, Amy Bowman, Lois W. Hale, Ann W. Bacon, Mary Ann B. Nelson, Janelle W. Warden, Carter E. Warden, John Walker and Nadine McCann, Kingsport
