No "Rose-of-Sharon," this.
To us, it will always be

"The Lily Bush"
Story Of
per Cuz Glenn E. Perry
The George and Angeline Tedders Family
once lived at Lily, in Laurel Co, KY.
After George's death, they moved back to
Clayborne Taylor's place in Knox County,
at what would become Tedders, KY.
Angeline took a bush there with her,
which was in the corner of the yard until
something happened to it in the 1960s.
It is ordinarily called a "Rose of Sharon,"
but there it was called the "Lily Bush,"
because Angeline had brought it from Lily.
Although we know the "correct" name for
this shrub, we always make it a point
to have a "Lily Bush" in our own yard.

Excerpt from
The Mountain Echo

Laurel County's First Newspaper
MARCH 18 1892
who was convicted in the Circuit Court at this place in 1887 for
the murder of
a Constable at Lily,

and sentenced to the penitentiary for life, was adjudged a lunatic
before County Judge Williams of Franklin County a few days ago.
He was thereupon pardoned out of the penitentiary by Governor Brown,
and the court ordered him sent to the asylum at Lexington.
Disney's mania is religion and for nearly five weeks since he was first
suspected of insanity, he has been continually preaching and praying.
He has had a brother confined at Anchorage, and others of
his relatives have at different times been in the Lexington asylum.
