As my brother Bob and I drove down the country road in the Three Oaks community west of Poth, Texas, I saw farmland with occasional oil wells pumping the black oil from the ground. Once in a while I would see one that was silent. But what we mostly saw was the land with no crops on it. This area of Wilson County used to be rich farmland that produced corn, maize, peanuts, and other legumes. Before that it was cotton, but then the boll weevil wiped out the farmers in the ’30s, and most of the farmers who lived in the Three Oaks, Dewees, and Kasper communities started to grow flax, peanuts, corn, and vegetables. Most of Wilson County’s men were farmers back then. . . .
