Little Home Histories, Part 26 -- Historical Data Concerning Joel and Rebecca Doudna and Family: 1859 June Frost.

by Hanson, Lucinda Bundy.

See previous entry: Little Home Histories, Part 25 -- Historical Data Concerning Joel and Rebecca Doudna and Family: Medication Applied to a Crushed Thumb.

As I remember this, it was in the first part of June, it killed all the corn except a few stalks that were growing under the trees. The corn must have been as high as my head. Not enough being left for father to gather, we children would take our wagons and wheelbarrows and gather the ears of corn which grew to maturity on the stalks under the trees. After the frost, the sun came out and laid it low and turned it black.

We had some "greening" apple trees. These apples were very much in demand in Barnesville for apple butter. These apples were killed. We also had a row of "neverfail" apples which we generally did not use or pay any attention to except to let the hogs eat them. The year of this frost, the "never fail" apples were the only ones that were not killed. We took very good care of these apples from this time on.
