My Uncle Fossill and I were sitting on the front porch of his Cabin one night and I asked him if he ever went hunting,this is what he told me:
Boy (Uncle Fossill always calls me Boy) Me and My Uncle Dan went posum hunting one night and we treed this big ole Bear.. (who is uncle Dan I asked)why uncle Dan is the best possum hunter in these hills Boy,he is married to aunt Josie and...anyway we had this big old bear treed when Leroy...(Leroy? I interjected) well Leroy was my 2nd cousin twice removed,he married Cousin Lina from Knoxville..anyway we had this...(I did'nt know you had relatives in Knoxville I said)well Lina was living in Knoxville at that time Boy said Uncle Fossill,but She was originally from here in Podunk,anyway as I was saying,me and old Dan..(Your Cousin Dan ?) No Boy,He was my Uncle and he was married to aunt Josie who was from new mexico,her Grand Daddy fought in the civil war and got wounded at lookout mountain by them yankee fellows back in 1863,why that ole rascal used to wear that confederate uniform to church and (what about that Bear Uncle Fossill?)
