Life At The Susie Houseby Daniel B Durbin
My parents lived in Sunfish, Kentucky during my early years of childhood. I grew up at the "Susie House". This was a two room house, no indoor plumbing, no electricity, no telephone, and without internet. We had a marvelous two-seater outhouse that served a family of 8 well. There were my parents, Ben and Gladys Durbin, plus six kids living in the two room Susie House. In today's world this would seem intolerable conditions, but at the time this was just the way things were.
This book is the result of my curiosity of the story behind the Susie House; how it got its name, and the people involved and why my parents came to live there. The story quest triggered me to remember things that happened as I was growing up. At our family reunions invariably someone tells a "remember when" story of something that happened from childhood in Sunfish. I wanted to capture some of these incidents for posterity. It is impossible to capture all the memories, but the ones retold in this book help tell the story of what life was like at the Susie House. Oral traditions fade through the successive generations and many of our remembrances are lost through time. I have added my memories and those of my siblings recalling life at the Susie House and growing up in Sunfish, Kentucky.
Appendix-A contains Deed Records dating to 1828. Appendix-b contains detailed genealogy charts and reports on Durbin and Anderson ancestors.
