Roaring River School

From the photo and research files of Darla Marbut

Darla Marbut said that her mother and her mother's brother went to school here. They lived on Roaring River near where Milo and Nicey (Haddock) Russell's homestead was. Their home was located across the river from where the present day horse stables are on the Roaring River Park. It was a mile or so to the school house. They got to ride "Old Billy", their saddle horse, to school. Darla said that her mother said that on icy cold days, the teacher let him put "Old Billy" in the wood shed. She indicated it was at the back of the school on the right where there is an addition. The park uses that area for a laundry house now days.  

Darla said, "My Mother Faye Maloney Ball was responsible for starting what turned out to be the Our Easleys a book that we did back in the 1970's. She had worked on it for 3 years and got me to type it up. I got interested and worked another 3 years gathering documents for her. Her Grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Russell Easley, was the daughter of Milo and Nicey Haddock Russell. Grandma Mary told her daughter, Mary Elizabeth Easley Maloney, who told Faye Maloney Ball, who told me stories about the family that are in the book including the one about 'Grandma Nicey riding the calf part way to the cave to take Grandpa Milo food and water during the Civil War. She also told of Grandma Mary and her sisters trying to plow the ground to plant a garden and having to hide their horse as they heard horses coming. They knew bushwhackers would take their horse from them."

These women handed down many wonderful stories. Darla said that her mother wanted them written down before they were lost, thus came the book Our Easleys.

In 1900, at Alum Well, Hawkins Co., TN, house #77, family #77 was listed David Still and his wife Sarah. Kirstsey/Kirtsy had not been born yet. The school photo has his name spelled Kirsey and the funeral home records had his name spelled Kirtsy. The cemetery record reads Kirtsey.

Living a few doors away, undoubtedly relatives, were two different Klepper families.

David and Sarah Still had been married 13 years and she had given birth to 9 children and had 5 living children. He was a grist mill laborer. Listed were these five children: Thurman, Roxie, Ollie, Manerva J., and Rachel. And the census was taken in June of 1900.

Culver's Funeral home records documented his place in this family and as having been born in Barry County, MO and who his parents were. That record reads: Kirtsy Simeon Still, of Seligman, MO, was born June 9, 1901, died Nov 13, 1963, Rogers Hospital, Benton Co., AR. He was a school teacher. Dr. Warren was his doctor, and the burial was in King's Cemetery given as Nov 17, 1963.  He was born June 9, 1901, age 62, married when he died. His wife was given as Pansy Ruth Fine Still, mother Sarah Klepper, father was David Still. Culver's Chapel, Volume 10, page 122, T & I Enterprises
