The Benfields

The Benfield Family lived up on Ole Yellowtop Mountain. Their place was remote, accessible only on foot and situated about two miles from the nearest paved road. A family of six they lived a spartan life. The whole family was shy by nature. The children avoided going to school. Andy, their father, had to walk them down the mountain each school day morning to be sure they got to school rather than hide in the woods all day which had been their custom. 1970
