Upper Left:  The orginal  Charles S. Burns homeplace about a mile and a half east of Saltillo.  Later, the place passed on to Walter Burns. The 100 acre farm was bought on November 27, 1893 for $650. The old house was torn down around 1927, and a new one (Upper Right) was built beside the old foundation. The newer house stands today. Walter Burn's daughter, Mildred, now lives on the place.  Down from this house across Highway 67 to the north near the railroad is the old site of Big Creek church, where school was held. This was on the Burns' farm. Nothing remained there, as reported in 1937, but a deserted graveyard. Later, a family named Hamilton came in and cleaned up the site and built a fence around it to keep the cattle out. Photos Courtesy of James Fletcher

Baptising at Greenwood circa 1920. Ike Davis, preacher at right end of line in water; Jno Clinton at the other end. This is 6 miles south of Saltillo, and the creek is Poor's Creek. Many citizens of Saltillo used to go to Greenwood for "all day singing and dinner on the ground" at the Baptist church by the creek, usually on July 4th. There was a great swimming hole near the church on Poor's Creek, and all the boys would make for it after they had stuffed themselves silly from all the food available. Candidates for public office would make this event and hand out their cards. From Gerald Post, Alive and Good to Know, 1988, p. 316
