Our father is sitting with my younger sister Lenora Cherry Powell (now 71) and our puppy. I am standing. I am 72 now.

Our father, Rev. John H. Bazemore Sr., a long time ago helped to keep the brush cut along the Roanoke Electric Cooperative power lines. During that time, he and his crew used bush axes and pick forks. There were no machines. It was all manpower. We live in the Republican community of Bertie County.
