Ladies and gentlemen, a strange sensation washes over me as I stand with my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, in the old Strange Cemetery.

    As the proverbial fingers of night are about to surrender the setting sun in a seemingly different time or realm, my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, is telling a tale of the “death struggle” his father, the late George Roush, whose grave we are standing before in the venerable cemetery, had with a deadly she-wolf in the Swamps around the mid-1800s.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we paused last week, my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush and I were standing alone in the old Strange Cemetery in front of the grave of Doc’s dad and my great-great-great-granddad, George Roush.

    My great-great-great-grandfather, George Roush, lived to be nearly 80 years old. He was born in the summer of 1827 and passed away in the spring of 1907. George’s son and my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, lived to be 92 and passed away in 1954 – but in a seemingly earlier time or perhaps a different realm, the old Doc and I are standing in front of old George’s grave in the Strange Cemetery.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we left the old Strange Cemetery last week, my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush was chatting about his late father, George Roush, and the family’s trusty rifle, “Long Tom.” The old Doc recalled the shooting matches he and his brothers would have with their father and how even into his 70s, old George would usually emerge the victor over his sons.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I am entranced in the old Strange Cemetery as my great-great-great-uncle Dr. Sigel Roush continues to confabulate with me about my great-great-great-grandfather and Russell Station pioneer, George Roush.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the ice and snow have vanished in the old Strange Cemetery and have been replaced by sunshine, green grass – and my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, who has been dead since 1954 and has been in repose in the Barnes Cemetery in Fairview about a mile or so away. Well, except he isn’t in repose just now, is he? At this point, I’d rather not go over and look.

    Ladies and gentlemen, a biting wind blows and the icy grass crunches under foot on a cold winter’s day in the Strange Cemetery. Icicles cling to some of the monuments in that old graveyard, which is really not as strange as its name. After walking a rather short distance on a rather dreary day, an old tombstone appears of George Roush, a pioneer of the Russell Station area and my great-great-great-grandfather.

    Our commander in chief has often been chided on his position on illegal immigration and border security. But at least he’s trying to do something about the problem. The chiders might feel differently if it’s their husband, wife, son, daughter, mom, dad, brother, sister or friend who is in the wheelchair – or the casket.

    Ladies and gentlemen, it seems only fitting and appropriate that the Rev. William Franklin “Frank” Foust was born on a Sunday. God only knows how many sermons that man preached over the years. I’m sure He kept count.
