Hambone


If anyone ever tells the story of Herbert Lee Craft, you should start by saying "The Love of God is the greatest love of all." That is how he wanted his story to begin, because it was how he lived his life...in the service of God. "As a child, I remember my mother and grandmother walking with me and my half brothers and sister, across the fields to go to Mt. Moriah Church. When the church house was in sight, we would sit down under a tree and dust off our shoes, so we would look nice upon entering." "Hambone," as he was known, was born on Dec. 19, 1907 at Noah's Hollow in Cumberland County, Kentucky. Hambone loved music. He played guitar and banjo, and when he was younger, he performed at dances. He once said, "Everyone loves to say hello to Hambone." Yes sir, we did!
