Symphony of Sounds - Appletree Hollow painting

"Symphony of Sounds"

An Appletree Hollow painting

May 31, 1862
These are two of the members in the horn section of the
Appletree Hollow Symphony, Terry Thomas and Teresa Lewis.
Both were born and raised in Appletree Hollow. Although they
were from large families, they captured the attention of
the residents at a very early age by recreating the sounds
of nature on small homemade horns.
I am sure there must be other diary entries but all I know,
at this time,is that they started the Appletree Hollow -
"Symphony of Sounds" at the young age of 16.
I hope to find more information in one of the other diary journals.

"Mr. Thomas Tudor"
Appletree Hollow
8"x10"-oil on canvas

Mr. Thomas "Tonka" Tudor – 1855 – 1925
Born in England 1855, he immigrated with his parents from England in 1865. His father
was a German trader but it was his Irish mother that stirred his first interest in billiards
with her connection to a wealthy English family.
Thomas’s first job was a janitor in a small establishment that catered to drink and billiards.
He was known to be very intelligent but also extremely clumsy and awkward. So, it came
as quite a surprise that he developed such outstanding skills in billiards.
Although he was only a janitor, he was quick to make friends that listened to his innovative ideas.
At some point, for unknown reasons, during the years of developing his playing skills, he gained
the nickname of “Tonka”.
Eventually, he assisted in developing new table and cushion designs, wrote endless articles

Her mother,a Swiss wigmaker and her father an Irish tailor, gave her a
comfortable upbringing in a loving home situated in a small neighborhood
inhabited mostly by immigrant merchants. She was a non-athletic, old
fashioned, stay-at-home kind of gal, who loved her family, good food,
writing and books.
It was said that throughout her life, she was not truly happy without
writing or having her nose buried in a book. Although she had
a shy, retiring nature she longed to be an actress from early childhood.
When it came time to go to college, she ran away to pursue her dreams.
She fabricated an exotic background of having an Egyptian royal heritage
