FTX-929 - THE HOUSE CARPENTER

Rebecca King Jones & Lee Monroe Presnell

REBECCA KING JONES was over 70 when visited by the Warners in 1940. She usually wore a calico dress, apron, boots and a sunbonnet. She lived alone in a little cabin in the woods at Crab Tree Creek, between Raleigh and Durham in North Carolina.

LEE MONROE PRESNELL, Buna Hick's uncle, learnt most of his songs from his mother and father. Anne Warner says of him: "Monroe was tall and handsome, gentle, courteous and admired by all who knew him".
