What was Elizabeth’s original name for Chance’s calf before deciding on the name, Dynamite?

Martha Corinne is married
to which Walton?
Boone
Henry
Dean
Wade
Correct
Henry
Oh the family tree gets complicated! Boone is the bootlegger son of Henry and Martha Corinne. Wade is Boone’s grandson, who eventually runs moonshine for Boone. And there is no Dean (that we know of!). We just made him up to mess with you.

Henry

John Walton, Jr., the character based on real-life, The Waltons creator Earl Hamner, Jr., is affectionately called John-Boy. What was Earl’s boyhood nickname?
Boy Earl
Sprocket
Clay Boy
Sparkplug
Correct
Sparkplug
Some speculate that The Waltons creator, Earl Hamner, Jr. was nicknamed Earl-Boy in his youth, and that’s why he named his beloved character, John-Boy. Not so! Hamner’s boyhood nickname was Sparkplug, and he says it was blessedly short-lived. In very early episodes of The Waltons, John-Boy is called “Sprocket,” but the name doesn’t catch on, and is dropped. The nickname, Clay-boy appears in “Spencer’s Mountain.” We just made up Boy Earl for the fun of it.

estranged sister?

Name the song and musical instrument John-Boy plays in a season 1 episode?
Love in Bloom on piano
Red Rosy Bush on dulcimer
Freight Train on guitar
Wabash Cannonball on banjo
Correct
Red Rosy Bush on dulcimer
The dulcimer is such a fun and unique instrument, and since John-Boy is a creative, folksy type, it makes sense he would play it. The others are just songs we like.
The correct answer is
Red Rosy Bush on dulcimer
