"Harvey "Hugh" Withrow lives on Carter Branch with two of his daughters, in a house he built '33-'34. He was 105 years old in December (2005). He is almost deaf and his speech is very difficult to understand." I hadn't seen him in probably 15 years until last fall. After his daughter explained to him who I am he immediately knew me. In trying to clarify some family relationships, I asked Hugh if Steve Stephens was my great grandfather's (Thomas Burton) father-in-law. I wasn't even sure that Uncle Hugh had understood or even heard me. He continued to sit there for five or so minutes. All at once he said, "brother-in-law." We have since discovered that he was correct. Of course, he was only 104 then." "Every year the Grayson paper does a blurb on him." Joel Carter.
