Good news from Daisy Gill. She has been moved to Room 16 in Dogwood Hall at the Ohio Valley Manor. She was able to come home for a short visit on Friday, the first time since November. One of the therapists came with them to make suggestions on having things ready for when she comes home to stay.

Mr. Roger Davis is having surgery this week and has been whining a little about needing prayers. Actually, he has been an inspiration for most of us with his spirit and participation in rehab and we all could use a little of his spirit. I hope everything goes well.

The Adams County Library will be at the Village Garden apartments tomorrow March 3 from 11:30 a.m.– 12:30 pm.

Several folks from Winchester enjoyed the basketball game between the Venture Hawks and Adams County Sheriff’s Office Eagles. No one was surprised that the Hawks absolutely annihilated the Eagles. This was the first basketball game I have attended where everyone had a great time and no one yelled at the referees.

Keep the family of Edna Lung in your prayers. She now has hospice care and they can use our support.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): Continuing with Nora and Harley Darlington. Nora was a half sister of Corintha Cochran who married Wesley Ellis. They were the parents of Hayden Ellis and the grandparents of Bernice Ellis Purdin and the great grandparents of Lynda Purdin Williams That would make Nora Bernice’s great aunt and Harley her cousin. In 1965 when Winchester had it’s Sesqui-Centennial, Harley and his wife came back to Winchester and visited with his relatives. Lynda has a picture of them in the Bicentennial Book. His mother had died in 1958 and is buried in Big Sandy, Montana. Harley died in 1996 and he and his wife and two of his sons are all buried in Big Sandy. He had five children and like him, his three sons were all ranchers and raised cattle. The picture of Harley’s tombstone has a cow on the stone. continued
