Letter: Grew up next to where Concord School stood

Ken Page writes:
I grew up next to where the Concord school stood. My family bought the Johnnie Young log house and farm. The property was long from front to back.

Johnnie named the big field 'Cubie', around the time of Spanish-American War fought in Cuba. Johnnie would tell his wife as he headed of to the back field "If anyone ask for me, tell them I've gone to Cubie".

Another clearing on the farm was named the June New ground which was cleared by June Spoon.
