My Mother-in-law Bertha, a native of Haywood County, North Carolina, was a daughter of Robert and Mattie Gant. She married Carroll T. Cornwell on December 26, 1932, and raised four sons, Billy Joe, Lee Roy, Tommie, and Stephen, and one daughter, Nina Sue. Bertha was a member of Long Shoals Baptist Church for many years and was employed as manager of the lunchroom at Valley Springs School, Skyland, NC. She was a devoted mother and a beloved "Granny Bert" to her 11 grandchildren.
