      My Father Ambrose R. McKenzie told Me,Joseph E.McKenzie,this story in July 1995. We were standing on Wills Creek AVE. in Cumberland,Maryland. Dad was looking down into the little creek just about 100 feet up from 307 Wills Creek AVE, Walter and Catherine McKenzie built this house in 1923. Dad told me
      that His Father,Walter,was somewhere in this area when he fell down the bank and injured himself. Walter was ill from that day until he died. Dad said Walter died from liver problems and he always thought that it was because of that fall by the creek.

      From Leo Mckenzie, son of Walter Mckenzie. Leo's recollection of the incident is "He Jumped across the stream with armfull of cucumbers".

      Walter E. McKenzie never drank whiskey in his life but made his living working in the distillery business. My Father told me that Walter knew everything about distilling whiskey.

      On the same day Dad told me about the little house just up the street 305 Wills Creek Ave. from 307 Wills Creek AVE. on the other side. Dad said that during the Civil War it was a Mess hall and the Soldiers that were training at Campabella, this is Latin for "Camp of war" would eat at this house log cabin at that time. Allegany High School now stands on Campabella. The School's nickname is the campers.

      From Leo Mckenzie, Son of Walter Mckenzie. Leo said "The mess hall was really the home of "Miss Miller's parents who sold pastry to soldiers when they were training,Shooting 58 Caliber rifles. The trench they laid in to fire their rifles was filled in to extend Allegany High around 1980".
