Cause of death: Pneumonia

“As a child I always cried to go home with Uncle John and Aunt Bulah because there were other kids to play with. We often slept 3-4 kids to a bed and ate off tin pans. It was pure heaven to a lonely little kid who lived with an elderly grandmother and 3 grown uncles. In 1928 or 1929 when I was 4 or 5 I was at Uncle John's and Aunt Bulah's. Lorene, Ila and I were in bed and we started talking about people dying. I said “If my Mother and Grandmother died I'd be an orphan.” The thought of being left totally alone so upset me that I started to cry and couldn't stop until Uncle John got up late at night and drove me home in his old touring car. I remember going with Uncle John's family to visit Aunt Bulah's Mother and step-father. His name was Needham Whitley and he had barbecued a goat. This was my first experiencw with eating goat and I can't remember if I liked it or not but there was vanilla custard icecream, Aunt Bulah's special, and I made myself sick eating it.”
