Ettie Mae Greene was born m 1877 to Lewis and Amanda Tho mas. She married Russell Greene in 1897. After he died in 1928, Mrs Greene never renlar ried.

Springfield Activities Director June Jennlngs said, NVliss Eitie is a wonderful person--a real de- light to be around. One thing about her is that she never aw swers a question with just 'yes' or 'no.'" "She has a unique and Indi- vidual response to every ques- tion every day," Mrs Blakeslee added.

Dri~dng down Washington -- out o| nly mouth came these words: "Why don't we eal at the Pioneer Drug Store?" "You know, they are the only local drug store with a soda fountain -- sandwiches --- etC" Usually they have homemade fillings such as, chicken salad, tuna salad, bar-be-que (Spuds?) etc!" Agreeing, we went in, lbund ourselves a seat at the back in the lunch section -- only one more table vacant! Glad we came. Ordering a sandwich ffon| off the menu printed on the wall. we sat back chatting, when m crone a big man with a big hat, I said to Frank, "I believe lhat is Mr Paul Lilly of family research fameF (We of course got ac quainted with him through re- searching nly great-great-grand father --- Tristram Patton - 1 T' COMBINATION SQIIAP.E (46-222FP) 13" WONDER BAR (55-515) 6 PIECE SCREW- DRIVER SET (64-457) llltltOilM GRii~ PIG~I[IN UNLINIID GLOVlI$ L~OO (l |31).

Ou back to the remaining table tie meandered. The tables are close, so I proceeded to look at hhn and greet him with. "I be- lieve you are tile lamous Green brier County Paul Lilly." He chliched his big hat, gave me tile once over and said, "I'm sorry lady, btlt I don't recognize yotl!" "I'm Roberta Rodgers" (grinning all the lime) "You don't look like you did." The conversation wenl on. "I don't have my wig on." My wig is an Ava Gabor in light brown, and my God given |lair is plain, white and string*y." "Jnst a minute, you folks sit still a minute. I have something in tile ear I want you to see," so off he went. Our food came and Mr IAlly hadn't returned. Conver- sation to Frank: =Wonder where on earth is his car'?." "Oh, he'll be rilJH back, it's down back some place!" Mr IJlly came back with two copied papers from an oM Bible. "Read this," he says, "it's your ancestry." Sure enough, two pages of Family-Record section. I glanced down through births, deaths? and other dates. The first entry was 9th of Septenlber 1839. That was Alexander R. Humphrey's birth, on down the page were 12 Humphreys born August 12, 1899 and Howard tlumphreys born 1902 -- brother and sister. Next two pages were deaths, dates, and names. In lhese was Louisa Amelia Patton, died 1903, who married Oliver B. Humphreys who died August 3, 1930. They were Miss Blanche's parents. She was our Greenbrier County Historian for many years. After exclailning over tile lind, I told Mr Lilly, I wanted to talk to the man who had brought the Bible from our famous Green- brier Valley Mall Tuesday flea markel. "I just can't believe it" -- "Follow me," said Mr IAlly qm is right down the street in Flanagan's Barber Shop!"
