    Notes 
    • 1201988131721612068011244401My great grandfather James Mitchell Galyen was born in Grayson County,Virginia. My father Lyle Childs and his brother James stayed with their grandparents around the time of their brother Ralph`s birth. My father shared with me this recollection; The two boys were given chores that they were suppose to do each day and bringing in the wood for the wood stove for heat for the night was one of their chores. One day, they neglected to bring in the wood. After they had gone to bed Grandpa James came in and pulled them both out of bed and headed them to the door. He never said a word to them, but they knew why they were sent out. He said that they were in their night shirts and bare footed and there was snow on the ground, they quickly brought in the wood and never again did they forget to do their chores.
      James Mitchell died July 17, 1929, while driving the tractor pulling the hay bailer. He collapsed from a massive heart attack and died instantly. Thomas Gwyn was on the bailer and he tried to get to his father and cut his leg as he went over the bailer. James was a loving husband and father.
