The Life and Times of Tell and Minnie Maynard and the Fifteen Children
Billy Randall Maynard
The title of the book sums it up fairly well with a couple of exceptions. “The Life and Times of Tell and Minnie Maynard and “the Fifteen Children” is several stories , using testimonials, written letters, and history to weave a wonderful narrative about some of the “last pioneers” on Brushy Creek of Pike Conty, Ky. See how they spent their days amidst the rolling hills of the countryside. There was a two-story house. There was a farm of 380 acres. A little church stood beside their home. A family cemetery began to grow from family members who left us too soon. This is the true story of a large family. This is my heritage. I felt compelled to tell their stories as they struggled to survive in this rugged territory. Wow - what a story it is! Meet the Maynards!
