Notes for THOMAS RUTHERFORD HALL,SR.: When he was a young boy he was playing in a bunch of trees, leaned down to pick up a pretty leaf and was bitten by a copperhead snake, his brother carried him to the house on his back. In those days they treated snake bites with a poultice of some kind to draw out poison.
Yes,I knew this about grandpa. He told me about it, the only thing about the story that I remember differently was that they were in a corn field where corn was shocked(stacked) and he saw a pretty leaf and picked it up and was bitten. He also told me that when the poultice was applied that it turned green. Something else that he told me when he was telling this story was that he was sick afterward and that his bed was by a window and that he was looking out the window and a lizard was climbing up the wall and he poured some kind of acid on it and killed it. I have always wondered what kind of acid it was and what the purpose of it was for. I should have asked.
