  • Group searching for descendents of Brig. Gen. John Croxton

    The Sgt. Elijah P. Marrs Camp No. 5, Sons of the Union Veterans of the Civil War, is searching for descendents of Brigadier General John Croxton, who is buried in the Paris Cemetery.
    The camp is planning a service in Croxton’s honor in late October at his gravesite.
    “The camp has been searching for and re-dedicating Civil War veteran’s gravestones during the 150th anniversary of the war,” said Phillip Seyfrit, commander of the Sons of Union Veterans camp based in Lexington. “We thought this year we would honor Croxton.”

  • Poison ivy, devious

    I’ve noticed more poison ivy this year than I recall in previous years.  
    Maybe I am more observant or maybe the farm is just weedier. Either way it makes people nervous.  
    I am not particularly allergic to this devious vine but Andy, my husband, will blister like being burned by fire whenever he comes into contact with it.  
    A few years ago we were trimming sheep hooves (sheep will eat poison ivy with no ill effects) and Andy inadvertently kneeled in some manure as we set to the task.
