My Grandfather, Tilden Young LaRue was born and grew up on a l00 acre farm purchased by James William LaRue, his father, from Henry Ash.  The farm was located on the banks of Middle Creek in the Locust Grove Area of Hardin Co., Kentucky.  James LaRue died in 1892 of pneumonia and is buried at Middle Creek Baptist Church Cemetery.  Tilden was 15 years of age and was the oldest male at home so became the person responsible for running the farm.
