Kentucky, 1964 and 1971


Junior and his girl Linda were hot to get married; they drove to Tennessee and landed in Sneedville where the only Justice of the Peace they could find was working all day at a gas station. So the Justice preformed the service there. It seems appropriate since so much of the thoughts and actions of the male Cornetts involves automobiles that one of their clan family should be married in a gas station.

Bill (age 11) writes a letter to his girl friend telling her he loves her and signs it: “Peace, War. Love.”
