  Mary Alma Pearson wrote: Ben and Georgia were typical of the self-sufficient farmers of that time. Nearly everything they needed was grown or made on the farm. Ben did mixed farming; corn, wheat, hat, and tobacco and livestock. Georgia raised turkeys and chickens, the eggs were sold for coffee and sugar. She made lye soap and baked bread each week. She canned her own vegetables and also made her own beer. Ben tapped maple trees to make syrup and also made sorghum. He took corn to the mill for grinding and may have taken wheat also. Georgia had a spinning wheel but may not have used it. Georgia visited with the sick. She would meet with other women to sit up with the sick and to help at births, sometimes having to stay overnight. She rode a horse side saddle to make these visits. Ben had a small pension from the Army and it was said he buried his money in glass jars hid around the farm. During the "oil boom" of the 1920's there was a gusher brought in on Ben's property. Neighbors came from miles around to see the well brought in.
