Owen Historical Society News – Riddle added to rich history of Owen County

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

Someone once said, “God pours life into death and death into life without a drop being spilled.”
In rural Owen County, the loss of a loved one is accepted as part of everyday life.
Author and storyteller Charlotte Ann Kemper Atchison described the days of mourning experienced by early Owen County families.
Charlotte grew up on Bucks Run and wrote of the times in her childhood when a deceased family member was washed and dressed in his or her finest, and placed in the parlor for viewing.
