Dycusburg News: March 18, 2010

By Matthew T. Patton

I received a few e-mails regarding the ferry at Dycusburg after posting a query in last week's issue. If anyone has photos or information, several are eager to learn about the ferry and its operation at Dycusburg. Please e-mail to share what you know.

A historic photo of John Anthony Greenlee and Lurie Emeline (Doom) Greenlee was added to last week. The couple are ancestors or relatives of many people in this area.

Happy belated birthday to Star Mahns (Feb. 19) and Jennifer Matthews (Mar. 14). They were accidentally omitted in last week's issue.

Get well wishes are sent to Randy Rushing, Lonnie Knight, J.E. Brasher and Parker Holsapple. Also, Patty Walker submitted this notation on the Dycusburg Facebook page: "Hadley Beth Peek, daughter of Todd and Ginny Beth Peek needs all the prayers we can send her. Her grandparents Steve and Eunice Peek are from Dycusburg." For more information about Hadley's condition, visit

Congratulations to Heather and Perry McDowell on the birth of their daughter, Eryn McDowell and to Misty and Brad McDowell on the birth of their son, Lucas J. McDowell.

We extend our sympathies to the family of Bobbie Jean Ramage, 76, who died Thursday, March 4. Burial was at Dycusburg Cemetery. We also received word at this writing that Millie Cole passed away on Monday morning.
