Personal Note: Aunt Mary was a stocky built lady with brunette hair. She seemed to alway have a smile and was cheerful and very fond of us kids. She would ask us to go and gather leaves and beans from the Catalpa Tree, on grandma Campbell's land, and bring them to her. She would make aprons and costumes for us to wear while playing.
