  1. Mark,
    This is great! I had never heard this group before but I love their sound. Thanks,
    Jeremy A. Scott

  2. This is my aunt, uncle and cousins !!!

  3. Walter and Ruthalea are in their late 80's and we just lost David to a heart attack a couple of years ago. Jay (Walter, Jr.) is still kicking and in WV as well.

  4. Stan - I archive data for the Bluegrass Discography and have this LP! Is it David or Jay on the fiddle/bass and what vocal parts do all four sing? Thanks, Tom Payne
