Story by Mauren McCarthy

Little Rock, AR

My mother, Mildred, and her family minus one boy not yet born. Mother is the girl seated in the front.

Born in 1919, she is about five years old in the picture. Her family was German and lived in a small coal mining town in southwest Illinois.

My grandmother, Anna, had a wonderful garden and raised chickens. My grandfather, George, was a self-taught pianist and worked at a local coal mine.
