Bill Monroe

Ohio County Feud Over The Use Of Bill Monroe’s Name Nearing End (As of September 2013)


Last week, the Kentucky Supreme Court denied a motion by the Ohio County Industrial Foundation and Ohio Fiscal Court to review the January ruling by the Kentucky Court of Appeals that said the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Music Foundation can use Bill Monroe’s name to promote the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Music Celebration and for tours of the Monroe homeplace. That means the Court of Appeals ruling stands.


But Campbell Mercer, executive director of the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Music Foundation of Kentucky Inc. — formerly the Bill Monroe/Bluegrass Music Foundation of Kentucky Inc. — said Wednesday that there’s still one more legal hurdle to go. In 2005, the industrial foundation and James Monroe, Bill Monroe’s son and the executor of his estate, obtained a temporary injunction in a Tennessee state chancery court prohibiting the Jerusalem Ridge Foundation from using Bill Monroe’s name.


“We still have to go back to Tennessee and ask the judge to lift the injunction,” Mercer said. “There’s a little more legwork. He said in the past that he would give deference to the Kentucky courts. So, we’re hoping when we show him the Kentucky Supreme Court decision that this will all be over.”

In a prepared statement, the Jerusalem Ridge Foundation said it plans to “reassume the Bill Monroe name and to use it to further the tourism and economic development interests of Ohio County, its citizens, the surrounding area and the entire state of Kentucky.”

Mercer said the foundation’s board will have to vote on changing the name back to Bill Monroe/Bluegrass Music Foundation. But he said he expects Monroe’s name to be on the 2014 bluegrass festival at Jerusalem Ridge.


The Court of Appeals ruling in January reversed a Sept. 12, 2011, Ohio County Circuit Court decision, which found that the county and the industrial foundation held the intellectual property rights to Monroe’s name and could stop the Jerusalem Ridge Foundation and its festival from using it. Monroe, known as the “father of bluegrass music,” was born on Jerusalem Ridge near Rosine in Ohio County in 1911. He died in 1996. The Jerusalem Ridge Foundation’s news release says that in 1999, the industrial foundation acquired the Bill Monroe intellectual property rights from James Monroe for $250,000. It said that in April 2001, a group of industrial foundation directors and officers incorporated the The Bill Monroe/Bluegrass Music Foundation of Kentucky, Inc. and hired Mercer to run it. By 2004, the news release said, “personal differences” between Mercer and the Monroe Foundation and the leadership of the industrial foundation resulted in the industrial foundation’s decision to prevent the Monroe foundation from using Monroe’s name.

That order caused the foundation to change its name to the Jerusalem Ridge Bluegrass Music Foundation. In 2007, the Jerusalem Ridge Foundation and Ohio County filed suit, seeking the right to use Monroe’s name.

Now, nearly a decade of legal wrangling seems about to end.

Tales From Grandmother

My oral history interviews with my grandmother are stories that she told me about her past, or about the past of other family members. To me, as a genealogist, it is important to preserve oral history from older members of the family, whose lives and their memories are at risk of being lost to time. Therefore, interviewing my grandmother, as well as my parents, was always a first priority of mine as a family historian to interview as many grandparents and great-grandparents, as possible – just little remembrances such as the story below.  My children and grandchildren love them!

Grandmother Gets Homesick

     ~.~

From a tape recording interview made on Oct 10 1977 with my grandmother, Eva Caroline (Smith) Cox (1889-1988,) when she recalled various memories and the following story about her own grandmother Fidella (Porter) Sanders.  She wanted to spend the night with her grandparents who lived about two miles or less from her house.

Grandmother:  “Oh, I don’t know how old I was.  But I wanted to go over there and stay all night and they let me go.  And I don’t know…I just got so homesick…and I wanted to go home.  I had stayed one night.  And I thought, well, the next day I’ll go home, but I didn’t go.” 

When the next night began to come on, oh, I got so homesick.  I began to cry.  I could hear them all hollering over there at home …and talking and laughing in the yard.  And I said I wanted to go home, and grandma said, “No, you can’t go tonight…cause we have no phone, and you might fall.  It’s too late, and there’s a big snow on.  I would never know if you got over there or not.” 

Well, I just set into squalling.  (Laughs.)  But I set to crying…and she finally give up…about dark.  And there was a big snow that night…up to your knees.  And it was nearly night time, and she couldn’t do nothing with me.  But I remember enough that she got a pair of grandpa’s wool socks and pulled them up over my shoes and fixed them where they wouldn’t fall down, and she let me go.  Laughing)  And there I went.  In the snow, walking.”

Jerri:  “What did your mother say when you got home?”

“And I come in, and Mother was so surprised.  All of them.  They had the lights on… lamps… and they hadn’t eaten their supper …they always ate late.  And grandpa eat early…about 4:30 in the wintertime.  So I had already had my supper.  And I really wanted to go home, and I was so happy when I got there.  There wasn’t any wind blowing.”        

Jerri:  “Were you as big as Amy?”  (My daughter was about six or seven.)

Grandmother:  “Probably was.  Probably larger.  But I was homesick.  And I wanted to go home.  I just would not stay that night.  I could hear their voices…hear them all talking, carrying in the wood, I guess.  I imagined everything.  And the more I listened, the more homesick I got. 

And it wasn’t but a mile.  But they didn’t know.  I could have fell and froze to death.  And nobody wouldn’t have known it.  It’s the wonder my grandmother let me go, but I guess she thought she would have to sit up with me all night.”  (Laughing) 


“Well, I was going.  I had made up my mind.  I was homesick.  Yes, I was.”

Old Sport –Guard Dog
Of
Charles and Fidella Sanders,
Grandparents of Eva (Smith) Cox,
Who lived at Select, Ohio Co. KY about two miles
from my grandmother when she was a little girl.

 
Grandmother:  “Yes, and one time, her dog bit me.  Old Sport.  I went over there, and in place of going to the door, I went around and thought I would miss him, and he was in the chimney corner, by the chimney, and when I turned the corner he grabbed me.  And I mean he bit the blood out of me.  My grandmother, Fidella Sanders, came running and taken me in the house.  And in that day and time, they had nothing but turpentine, and she put that on that sore, on the place where that dog had bit me.” 

Jerri:  “Was he bad about biting?”

Grandmother:  “Yes.  We all knew that.  He was a guard dog.  He was a great big old black wooly dog….with a little white on him.  He was a pretty good sized dog, too.”

Eula Mae:  “You didn’t like him, then?”

Grandmother:  “No, I was glad when he died.  (Laughter)  Well, I really was.  I never did like that dog.  (Laughter from those around her dining room table, who were listening to her stories.)  Now they were really proud of that dog, and they were old and it guarded them, and they loved him.  But I didn’t like that dog.”

JOHN W. HINES, Ohio County, is a son of William H. Hines, a native of Kentucky, a boot-maker by profession; married Hester Ann Rone in 1840. He died in 1863, leaving seven children, of whom our subject, John W., is the second. William H. Hines, in 1861, entered the Federal army, with the rank of sergeant in Company B, Seventeenth Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, served one year, and was discharged on account of ill health; afterward joined the Twelfth Kentucky Cavalry, in which he rose to the rank of first lieutenant, and while in service died at Louisville, Ky., in 1863. Simeon Hines, the grandfather of John W., was a native of Virginia. He died in Ohio County, Ky., in 1872, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. John W. Hines was born May 22, 1848, in Woodbury, Butler Co., Ky. During the absence of his father in the war, and after his death, until 1866, young Hines supported the family by his labor. After his mother's second marriage, he worked on the farm by the month and drove team for two years; then carried mail from Hartford to Cloverport on the Ohio River, and between Hartford and Point Pleasant on Green River, for one year. In 1870 he raised a crop of corn. January 15, 1871, he married Alice M., daughter of Philip and Martha Davenport. He then carried mail another year on the same route; then rented land and farmed one year, and in the fall of 1872 bought 100 acres, which he sold five years later, and bought 119 acres where he now resides; has sixty-five acres well fenced and in cultivation. He gives his exclusive attention to his farm and his stock, which is, probably, the best to be found anywhere in his vicinity. Mr. Hines has accumulated his property by good management and close attention to business, but attributes much of his success to the assistance of his wife. They are the parents of two sons, Vernon N. and Luther P., aged, respectively, ten and six years. Mrs. Hines is a member of the Baptist faith. Mr. Hines is in practice on the side of temperance, and is a Democrat, but occasionally votes for a Republican if he thinks him to be the best man for the place. Mr. Hines' mother, Mrs. Hester Ann (Rone) Hines, is still living.

1860 – 1875 in Kentucky

     In researching my ancestry I noticed that some individuals and families moved from Kentucky to other states during the Civil War (IL, IN, MO, AR & TX) and in the decade following the end of the Civil War; sometimes a family would have multiple moves. This movement was usually because families were seeking work and some sort of financial stability due to the bad economy in Kentucky during and immediately after the Civil War.  Some of these families returned to Kentucky but some did not.

After the Civil War:

     The end of the Civil War found Kentucky in a terrible plight. The conflict had left behind its toll of physical destruction as well, for crops had been lost, livestock taken, and property destroyed. There were 89,000 fewer horses, 37,000 fewer mules, and 172,000 fewer cattle in Kentucky in 1865 than at the start of the war. The amount of land under cultivation had declined drastically. Despite wartime inflation, land values in places like Lexington decreased one-fourth between 1862 and 1872. A soldier returned to one Kentucky town and was welcomed by "neglected farms .... roads and paths overgrown with weeds, and almost no business of any kind being carried on." But that sense of economic setback could be - and would be - easily overcome, for in truth Kentucky had not suffered as greatly as the states farther south. The commonwealth thus emerged from the conflict hobbled, but strong enough to move ahead, to grow rapidly, even to take a leadership role in a region where other states had much greater handicaps and devastation to overcome. More damaging than the economic costs was the war's effect on the psyche of the populace. So much of what had once been was no more. The optimism that drove settlers to frontier Kentucky now seemed a rare commodity. 

     The return to peacetime normalcy, often called Reconstruction or Readjustment, proved a formidable challenge. In 1865, Kentucky faced a number of problems: federal military rule had to be ended; the economy had to be revived; labor problems accompanying the emancipation of the slaves had to be resolved; and the freed Negro had to be integrated into the state's political, economic and legal systems. Although the state was spared the trauma of secession and the subsequent necessity of readmission to the Union, because of Kentucky's slave interests the years immediately following the war were as critical to its residents as to those of the Confederate states. Lawlessness and violence abounded in Kentucky during the decades after the war, continuing to the turn of the century and beyond. The suspicion and animosity of the war did not end as soldiers returned home to live, often side-by-side, in continuing hatred. Seething over real and imagined injuries, lawless groups roamed the countryside. Outrages occurred throughout the state; beatings, lynchings, shootings, rape and arson created a dismal picture. 

     As the state's political situation stabilized, public attention turned toward a long overdue reform of the public school system. Between 1861-1865 education was the last thing on anyone's mind; the legislature's one appropriation for schools was based on money confiscated from illegal gambling enterprises and dog fees. With almost one-fourth of all Kentuckians over the age of ten illiterate, the establishment of a state education system proved an enormous task. Schools had to be reopened with public support, and facilities for the children of freedmen had to be provided. Unfortunately, there were few trained teachers, scant facilities for educating them, no school commissioners or boards, and a lack of textbooks. Whether black or white, the Kentucky school child's education was far from ideal. The Common School Report of 1871 described schools as having "leaky roofs, filthy floors, smoked ceilings and walls defaced with obscene images," and the 1874 survey stated that "foul air and feculent odors" prevaded the school buildings. No wonder that schools failed to attract more than 40% of the school age children. The state did not even have an eight-week per annum compulsory school law until 1896. For those who did attend, the McGuffey Readers, the Eclectic Spelling Book, and the American Standard School Series provided instruction in the three R's, spelling, grammar, composition, history, geography, and the laws of health. In 1893, Kentucky history was included in the curriculum.

     The Panic of 1873 stands as the first global depression brought about by industrial capitalism. It began a regular pattern of boom and bust cycles that distinguish our current economic system and which continue to this day. While the first of many such market "corrections," the effects of the downturn were severe and, in 1873, unexpected; the Panic of 1873 spanned from October 1873 to March 1879. Numbers fail to convey the depth of the economy distress. Average wages fell by nearly a quarter. Thousands of American companies defaulted on over a billion dollars in debt, nine out of 10 U.S. railroad concerns failed, and the country faced double-digit unemployment for over a decade. The worst effects of the downturn (unemployment, homelessness, malnutrition) were concentrated in the industrial sectors, but every region suffered and the economy continued to sputter. The long-term effects were quite noticeable from today's perspective. While the northern U.S. economy raged like a furnace from 1840 to 1860, averaging over six percent annual growth per year, the country's overall economic productivity fell by over 24 percent during the two decades that followed the Panic of 1873.

Hartford Herald 1875

      The first issue of the Hartford Herald was published January 6, 1875 – it is listed as “Volume 1, Number 1.”  The publisher was John P Barnett & Co, Hartford, and the editor was Wallace Gruelle.  It was a four page newspaper with the front page largely a reprint of a popular book titled Maria Saxonbury, authored by Mrs. Henry Wood; plus short articles from out-of-state newspapers, a few bad jokes and an article from the Detroit Free Press titled The Model Wife (not exactly political correctness).  Page 2 was “News of the Week” and was national and international news for the past week. Page 3 was local and regional news (one story on page 3 was titled “The Trouble at the Render Coal Mines”). Page 4 was dedicated to agricultural news. Advertisements were sprinkled throughout the four pages. An annual subscription was $2.00.

     I have spent a few hours reading all 52 issues from 1875 and I have picked out a few things that I found interesting.  The following is from February 3, 1875 (sorry the two photos don't line up very well):

SAMUEL E. HILL

SAMUEL E. HILL was born January 30, 1844, in Morgantown, Ky., a son of Daniel S. and Malinda (Ewing) Hill, of Butler County, Ky. The father was a carpenter by trade, and in 1850 moved to Ohio County. In 1862 he was elected county judge, and died in May, 1865. The mother died in June, 1844. There were six children born to them, of whom our subject is the sole survivor. Samuel E. was principally reared in Hartford, where he received his education at the old Hartford Seminary. When sixteen years old he began working on a farm, and at the age of eighteen enlisted in Company G, Twelfth Kentucky Cavalry, Federal service, and at organization of the company was appointed first sergeant. His brother, John W., who was captain of the company and acting major, was killed at Knoxville, Tenn., while leading his battalion in a charge at the beginning of the siege. Samuel E., at the death of his brother, was elected captain over the lieutenant of the company, with only two dissenting votes, and was later breveted major. His commission as captain was issued January 18, 1864, a few days before he was twenty years of age; he was known as the "boy captain." He was after Morgan on his raid in Indiana, was in the east Tennessee campaign under Burnside; in the Atlanta campaign under Sherman, and at the Saltville raid and other severe engagements. He never missed a campaign with his company, or spent a day in the hospital. After his return from the war he began the study of law under Hon. D. H. McHenry, and graduated, in 1867, from the Louisville law school. He then returned to Hartford and opened a law office in partnersnip with Judge J. W. Kincheloe; this partnership terminated after five years. In 1873 he entered into partnership with D. H. McHenry, who recently retired and gave place to his son, the firm now being Hill & McHenry. In 1877 Mr. Hill was elected State senator, was chairman of the joint committee on education, and was a member of two of the law committees of the senate. In politics he is a Democrat. He is now and has been for many years past a member of the State and county committee. October 12, 1869, he married Naomi Baird, daughter of Alexander B. and Sallie M. (Barnett) Baird, of this county. To them have been born three children: Effie, Mary, and Lizzie, all at home. Mrs. Hill is a Methodist and Mr. Hill leans to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, has been twice high priest of his chapter and thrice master of his lodge.
