The stories in this book are a true recollection of over seventy years of interaction with the people and places in the town of Durham, as heard and experienced by the author. Maybe a little literary license has crept in to embellish the stories, but the names are accurate and no facts have been changed to protect the people named in this book. The author wishes to thank the towns people who confirmed the events in the book. Thanks to my wife for helping me spell the hard words. Also, she experienced some of the same events in Durham, except she went to the Methodist Church until 1941 when the Methodist and Congregational churches merged and used the same minister. Ten years later we were married in the Congregational Church. You might say the church has been the greatest influence on our recollections of what happened as we grew up in the town of Durham.
