    From the "Davis" document (author not known):
    Mattie Ann could remember the Civil War. Her daddy and older brothers were gone to fight. The family hid their food from the yankees and dug holes under corn shocks to buy valuables. One day soldiers came and found a gun at the house. Mrs. Davis told them that it was used only to kill hogs but the soldiers were afraid it would kill yankees. They wedged it in the fork of a peach tree and broke it.
