I miss those hills and the baying of the hounds

-A A +A

In 1939, I was born in Charles Troy Higgins’ house at 211 Painter Street. I always enjoyed Muncey Poole’s articles about him.
Higgins was chief of police in Galax until 19 May, 1920, when he and other Felts Detectives were gunned down in Matewan, W.Va., as they waited for a train to take them back to Galax.
I haven’t lived in Galax since childhood, but spent many happy summers there. My aunts and uncles, the Higginses and the Beamers, are gone, except for Geraldine Beamer.
