Living on a working farm the family grew a very large garden and had about 100 chickens and about 15-20 hogs, two milking cows. They we faithful members of Amis Chapel Baptist Church where they are buried. No one in the community ever went hungery for they always shared. She faithfuly milked both cows 2x a day and shared the milk with the community. Her husband and she was always generaous to all no matter of statue or race. Raised tobacco and very large garden. She churned to make butter and buttermilk. The took wheat and oats to mill to have have flour and cooked on wooden stove in early 1900s. If they had IT and you needed it they would either give it to you or loan it to you. Very active in their church. Loved by everyone in the area and still have wonderful memories of my childhood with them and even today I think of them and miss them lots.
