Possum Hollow Healer



as told by Daniel Bower


"There was a lady, who could stop nosebleeds.  People could call her and she could do it from a distance.  I had a cousin and he'd have nose bleeds a lot.  Any little bump, he'd have a nose bleed.  Her name was Ida Basham.  She was in my neighborhood when I was growing up.  In the Possum Hollow section of the county."
