My Great Uncle, Eskridge Dewitt Smith, wrote several stories about his life.  I thought I should share this story with others and have left the story as written [spelling, punctuation, etc.].  Big Unckie was a character.  I forget why he was called Prim Rose and don't worry - that 16 year old girl in his bed was his young wife.  I remember as a child being drawn in for a big hug and then getting his beard stubble rubbed all over my face.  I wish he had gone into more detail about the cyclone, that first electric light and the water lines being laid...but I am so grateful that he wrote as much as he did.  I hope you enjoy the story as much as I do. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. -- Submitted byBarbara Crumby
