DELIGHTFUL
----------
Reminiscences of Oddville in 1860
and later.
----------
My first view of Cynthiana was by "early candle light" one evening in
the fall of '60. With his lares and penates in carriage and wagon, our
preacher-father started from Sharpsburg for his new field of labor, the
Falmouth circuit, early that morning. Oddville was the objective
point. Failing to make it by daylight, night coming on found us out on
the Millersburg pike near the Mack Kimbrough home. A darky, questioned
as to a stopping place, replied: "Yes, sah, Marse Mack Kimbro, he done
keep a tabern for trabalers." The hog-driving season was on and
Kimbrough's hospitality was already overtaxed. Immense droves of hogs
were gathered up in Bath, Nicholas and other counties every fall and
driven to Cynthiana for shipment via R.R. to Cincinnati. Kimbrough's
was the last stopping place for entertainment and the final feed and
resting up of the droves before embarking on the last leg of the trip to
market. Fine, fat swine, they were[,] too, big fellows, many of them
mast-fattened and the mountains and corn finished in the Blue Grass.
Coming on to town we stopped at the famous hostelry, kept by T.R. Rankin
and wife, two of the biggest hearted and most popular hosts that ever
conducted a hotel in Cynthiana. Cynthiana, then had 700 or 800
inhabitants, but that's another story.
Resuming the journey, next morning found us at Oddville. H.
McWhiteker, kind hearted and genial "Uncle Mack," was the first man
met. David W. Batson, the first boy. In addition to his large farm,
Whiteker was running a large saw mill in the village. Formerly he had
engaged in merchandise on quite a large scale. The one store then
running was kept by J.M. Hodson and wife--in after years, "Aunt Betsy."

mast-fattened and the mountains and corn finished in the Blue Grass.
Coming on to town we stopped at the famous hostelry, kept by T.R. Rankin
and wife, two of the biggest hearted and most popular hosts that ever
conducted a hotel in Cynthiana. Cynthiana, then had 700 or 800
inhabitants, but that's another story.
Resuming the journey, next morning found us at Oddville. H.
McWhiteker, kind hearted and genial "Uncle Mack," was the first man
met. David W. Batson, the first boy. In addition to his large farm,
Whiteker was running a large saw mill in the village. Formerly he had
engaged in merchandise on quite a large scale. The one store then
running was kept by J.M. Hodson and wife--in after years, "Aunt Betsy." Parents: Thomas RANKIN Jr. and Nancy MCMILLAN.
