My Freeman Grandparents as teens lived in Spadra, AR. They survived with their lives, but the crop did not. They told of harvesting the corn from boats & putting it on the roofs to dry. Grandpa CT was 14 & related to Thomas Burris who died. Grandma was a Moore/Griffin mix & 16 at the time. I just can't fathom living through the day to day devastation of it. Hard Scrabble. I don't know where the phrase comes from but am sure it was a hard sramble to survive.
Thanks for sharing.
Pine Bluff is 1 1/2 hours north of where we live. A couple of times in the 20 years in Louisiana, we have not been able to travel home to HSNP because the bottom-land highways have been flooded.
