Albert Greer - Mountain Man


We were fortunate beyond our knowing to have had Albert for our neighbor for many years. He knew the land and the woods and all the old ways of mountain farm life. He came with seed potatoes in early spring and helped plant our first garden. He came at hog-killing time, full of stories and jokes and laughter, to show us how things were done. Whatever we were doing, Albert could tell us a 'trick or two' to help things along. He loved to tell us about the old days and we loved to listen. We miss him, and the mountains miss him.

He lived to be over 102 years old.
