  1. It’s interesting that you said shut-in was originally an Appalachian term that was brought by the first white settlers in the Ozark region. Of course I believe you but I never heard the term until I moved to Missouri. Odd, huh?

  2. Yeah, it is interesting. According to Beveridge the term is almost exclusively used in the Ozarks during modern times. I had meant to ask you if you had heard it during your time in the east.
