Aunt Jane was born into slavery. She was born to Bennett Bedford on the Cumberland River and has lived at Forkton for the last 60 years. She has two living daughters, Doe Bailey and Minnie Lankford, the latter living with her. She joined the Missionary Baptist Church about 60 years ago and was baptised by Rev. Flem Childress. She still belongs to the same church. She said," I want the world to know that I am not a Democrat." She remembers her 106 yr. old mother telling about holding Abe Lincoln on her lap at Center Point, Ky. She lived on the Headrick road near Mt. Gilead.
