34 Everyone that I have talked to that knew Grandmother Johnie Casburn said that she was a very head strong and feisty woman. Stella Terrell Casburn, her daughter-in-law said that Johnie was very jealous of a woman that John knew in Dallas before they married. While John was living in Dallas he met a woman named Caruth that he thought was very beautiful. One day Johnie and Stella were going through a trunk and found a picture of the woman. Johnie got so mad that she shredded the picture. Stella asked her why do you care if he has the woman's picture it's you that he loves and married? Johnie told her that she didn't need any other women in her house.

March 12, 2005 - Story told by Pollyanna Casburn Brown

John was doing a lot of work in the Newcastle area and wanted Johnie to come there and live while he was working. She didn't want to leave Graham. So, John got him a place to stay in town. Every time Johnie would get a letter from him, he was always raving about this woman in Newcastle that was the best cook and the things that she made for him to eat. Johnie got so upset that she and her daughter Alta hitched the horse to a buggy and set out for Newcastle. Newcastle was over 20 miles from their home in Graham. Along the way, Johnie stopped the buggy and got out and gathered some berries. She crushed up the berries and she and Alta painted their cheeks and lips red with the berry juice. As she rode into Newcastle, John saw them with the bright red lips and cheeks. She said if a painted woman is what you like, then you got two that have come to see you. After that Johnie decided to stay in Newcastle with John until he finished the work and came back to Graham.
