I had the pleasure of meeting Sally Barrere over the weekend. I’ve known of Sally for years, and we’re relatives. As you may or may not recall, I wrote a series on the Barrere family a while back, and meant to see it all the way through, but got swept away by the Temperance Movement that swept through Hillsboro in the 1870s.

    I met my “Ole Betsy” in 1992, and it was love at first sight. Dad bought her off of his boss for $1,200, if memory serves, and she had low miles, a 3.8 liter V6 engine and was a sharp burgundy inside and out. This was the first car I had ever driven where when I stepped on the gas, she would “get up and go.” And she came into my life at perhaps the perfect time.

  • The Lincoln School Mothers’ two-year march
    Wednesday, May 23, 2018 8:53 AM
    More than six decades ago, the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case declared school segregation unconstitutional, but a group of mothers, the Lincoln Mothers, had to take matters into their own hands to fight for school integration in the city of Hillsboro. They decided to march – for two whole years.

    Ladies and gentlemen, a strange sensation washes over me as I stand with my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, in the old Strange Cemetery.

    As the proverbial fingers of night are about to surrender the setting sun in a seemingly different time or realm, my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, is telling a tale of the “death struggle” his father, the late George Roush, whose grave we are standing before in the venerable cemetery, had with a deadly she-wolf in the Swamps around the mid-1800s.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush and I were standing alone in the old Strange Cemetery in front of the grave of Doc’s dad and my great-great-great-granddad, George Roush.

    My great-great-great-grandfather, George Roush, lived to be nearly 80 years old. He was born in the summer of 1827 and passed away in the spring of 1907. George’s son and my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, lived to be 92 and passed away in 1954 – but in a seemingly earlier time or perhaps a different realm, the old Doc and I are standing in front of old George’s grave in the Strange Cemetery.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we left the old Strange Cemetery last week, my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush was chatting about his late father, George Roush, and the family’s trusty rifle, “Long Tom.” The old Doc recalled the shooting matches he and his brothers would have with their father and how even into his 70s, old George would usually emerge the victor over his sons.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I am entranced in the old Strange Cemetery as my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush continues to confabulate with me about my great-great-great-grandfather and Russell Station pioneer, George Roush.
