Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Sgt A H Munson of the 1st Kentucky Mounted Rifles.

I found an interesting monument in the Kentontown Cemetery. The monument was in the shape of the first church at Kentontown. The history of Kentontown is engraved on the monument. The names of the men in the 1st Kentucky Mounted Rifles in 1861 are listed. Notice that the Sgt. is A H Munson. He had lots of cousins on the Yankee side of the Civil War. I am going to see if I find more data on Sgt. Munson.
