Title

Alka Davis and Bill Reffett with harvested tree, 1930s

Description

Alka (Alamander) Davis and Bill (William) Reffett were partners in a lumber company that operated in Jobe Turner Branch at Eastern, Kentucky, on Right Beaver in the 1930s. Alka Davis (standing on the left) was only about 5' 6" tall, so the two-man cross cut saw was probably close to six feet in length; making the tree's circumference somewhere close to 18 feet.
