My first recollection in my life was when A. Mary was at "the old place" and we fugured it was probably in June 1926 and she was standing by the dresser telling me what a husband was, for she had married him on his 23rd birthday.
I was given by another family member the letter my grandmother Bowles wrote to Aunt Mary
at S.T.C now Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia saying Papa did not have the $100 to
send her back to Farmville in 1922(there were no scholarships then even if you were valedictorian of the high school class which she was), so to Ellerson, Virginia to teach where she met the love of her life, E. Floyd Yates and added another bright light to our families.
