THE HEIG'S WOMEN

AT SHEBOSS CEMETERY THERE ARE FIVE LITTLE TOMB ROCKS
WHICH A GENERATION AGO WAS A MYSTERY TO THIS SECTION.
TWO GROWN WOMEN AND THREE CHILDREN (3 GIRLS) APPEARED
ON THE BANK OF CATHEY'S CREEK AND LIVED THEIR LIVES
AND WERE BURIED AT SHEBOSS AND NO ONE EVER KNEW WHERE
THEY CAME FROM. THEY WERE HARD WORKING PEOPLE AND THEIR
CHARACTER WAS ABOVE REPROACH, BUT THEY LIVED OUT THEIR
LIVES THERE AND NEVER TOLD ANYONE WHERE THEY CAME FROM.
THINK THEIR LIVES WERE SOME LIKE RUTH IN THE BIBLE,
THE FARMERS GAVE OF THEIR ABUNDANCE TO THEM. I'VE
HEARD THAT ONE FARMER HAD WHAT HE CALLED THE HEIG'S
WOMEN'S CRIB THAT HE SAVED CORN ON HIS PLACE TO GIVE
TO THEM.
