JIM: Travel advisory for Faubush area
Back in the day, the Jabez area was known as The Panhandle, called that after the notorious Texas Panhandle. His words of warning are about the olden days. Today's Faubush is a beautiful patriotic place, with peace loving citizenry living on a lakeside paradise. RELATED PHOTO: Overlook Lake Cumberland, near Faubush, KY

As my Uncle Arvil was wont to say, it's mighty d*mn perl'us to hang around the South Faubush / Jabez area without benefit of armed guard and a small to medium sized cannon.
It was "amongst in thar" that a lot of my less illustrious ancestors settled many a moon ago and the dust they raised still hasn't settled and likely won't til Resurrection Day, if then. Remind me to tell you about Marryin' Jake T------ some of these days. His death record says he died as a result of "fall from waggon." I contend he was pushed.
Back in the day, the Jabez area was known as The Panhandle, called that after the notorious Texas Panhandle. Many a man and a few women lie in fitful slumber in cemeteries around there, sent to the netherworld of the grave by seasoned hickory, cold steel, or hot lead.
From Jimtown to Jabez isn't all that far as the crow flies, but if the crow is afoot, it's "a fur piece" around. I've heard both my mother and father speak of how beautiful the countryside was between the two points.
Next time you're over that way, cruise over to the Zollicoffer Park. It's about a mile outside Nancy on 235 south and is well worth the stop. - JIM
