Right you are when you say you don't think there are many "Drawbonds" around any more. You just rarely hear the name anymore. My father was from Vesuvius - his name was Glendon Neurlin Drawbond son of Clarence and Laura Drawbond. He has a sister still living in Staunton - Vernie (Drawbond) Miller. He has a brother living in Fla. - Clarence Drawbond. He was known
best by the name of Jiggs. My Dad was married to Gertrude (Bass) Drawbond. They first lived in Speedwell, Va. and later moved to Wytheville, Va. and were there until their death. There were four daughters born - Elizabeth, Jenny(me), Lynda and Dottie. Liz died in her earlier fifties so there are three girls left - all married with children and grandchildren.
So - do you know "us DRAWBONDS". I feel you do after reading about Vesuvius - I used to visit my grandparents there when I was in my teens - not far from Cash's Store where I used to buy penny candy!
