THE HERITAGE PROJECT

We take great pride in announcing the rollout of the Heritage Project. In the future, we plan to share memories, photos, and truths, straight from the teller’s mouth.

Our elders are passing quicker by the day, and we simply can not allow their “truths” to pass with them. Our ancestors live, in the tellin’, and it’s our responsibility to keep them alive.

From hours on end, spent digging in a poisonous mine, to back-breaking labor tilling the rocky ground. Gentle fingers patiently spinning yarn and sewing heavy quilts for cold winters. Nothing came easy. These conditions gave birth to humble, hard-working people with a special brand of wisdom.

Below are a few samples of some upcoming stories, I hope we do them proud in the tellin’.

Rev. Curtis R. Sutton, well-known mountain preacher, and father of Clyde Wayne Sutton of (Sevier County Tn). The now tattered bible can be seen held in his hand. The Bible was believed lost until found (complete with sermon notes) in the dirt in an old barn. We are working on the story, (it’s a good one)
The white Bible belonged to Mrs. Damaris Cardwell, who married Rev. Woodrow Wilson Bradley. (Sevier County Tn.) They were married by Rev. Sutton (above). The center picture was her mother. Of their five children three survive today, Albert, Ardell, and Mary Jean. We have such incredible tales of this family to share with you in the coming time.

The Clan is working on these “truths” and will post them as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please contact us with your family’s history so we can get them out for all to see.

The Tin Cup Clan thanks you for your time. And please…share, share, share. Tell us what you think. Let’s get the word out about what it REALLY means to be Hillbilly.
