Out Of The Black Patch Effie Marquess Carmack 1885 1974 grew up in the tobacco growing region of southern Kentucky known as the Black Patch As an adult she moved to Utah, back to Kentucky, to Arizona, and finally to California Economic necessity primarily motivated Effie and her husband s moves, but her conversion to the Mormon Church in youth also was a factor Throughout her life, she was committed to preserving the rural, southern folkways she had experienced as a child She and other members of her family were folk musicians, at times professionally, and she also became a folk poet and artist, teaching herself to paint In the 1940s she began writing her autobiography and eventually also completed a verse adaptation of it and an unpublished novel about life in the Black Patch.Much of Effie s story is a charming memoir of her vibrant childhood on a poor tobacco farm She describes a wide variety of folk practices, from healing and crafts to children s games Her family s life included the backbreaking labor and economic trials of raising tobacco, but it was enriched by a deep familial heritage, communal music, creative play, and traditional activities of many kinds After the family converted to the Mormon Church, religious study and devotion became another important dimension Effie s account of Mormon missions contributes to the little known record of Latter day Saint attempts to establish a presence in the South.After marrying, the Carmacks moved west, eventually landing in the Arizona desert, where Effie took up painting in earnest Her art began to attract modest attention, which brought exhibits, awards, and a new career teaching others what she had taught herself After the Carmacks later retired to Atascadero, California, Effie became a active and public folk singer as well.
