When I first saw this five or six years ago, I was surprised to know my sister and her family was in pictures. I know this house well, but unfortunately it burned to the ground. My nephew lived in it when I was younger. William preserved the times well. Thank you so much. I would recommend to anyone interested in times in the history of the hills of Eastern Kentucky in the 1940's. I grew up in a four-room log cabin myself about a mile and a half from where this was filmed. My grandfather raised his family about a 3/4 mile from where it's filmed and half way between the location and my dad's farm.
