makin shine1694


The 3rd Annual Granville Cornbread & Moonshine Festival on May 6th will feature
Moonshine Stories of Yesteryear as a special feature of the annual festival. Dr. Op
Walker of Cookeville will share “Dry Hollow Moonshine” stories in the Pioneer
Village at 2:00 p.m. Dr. Walker will share stories of his father Oscar L. Walker
that was a noted moonshiner in Overton County. He walked almost everywhere
he went, carrying as much moonshine as possible. When going on some trips
he rode old Dina his mule. He was known in the Upper Cumberland for the
quality of his moonshine. The picture shows him after he was released from the
Celina Jail where he stood before a judge for delivering his moonshine to the area.
The judge had compassion on Dad and let him go because he was so poor and had to
survive. Walker raised 12 children in which Dr. Walker is the youngest. His dedication
to his family was unmatched. His transition from moonshine was also remarkable.
He became a greens-keeper at the Dayton (Ohio) Country Club. He became a
Christian in 1946 and stopped all connection with alcohol.
