Stories

Varilla [Bingham] Simpson was an herbalist

Hulan KY

Grandma was taught about herbs by one of her grandmothers who was mostly of indian hertage.  She used her knowledge to care for families all around where she lived.  She also helped in the birthing of many of the children nearby. 

We lived next door to Abram and Varila [Bingham] Simpson, my mother's parents, and she would ask me to make pudding for her and she would share it with me when I was about 11. She tried to teach me about herbs one time when I was about six , however I just wanted to hear her talk about when mom was a was a girl.
