She went to the Brice School north of Vandalia, Missouri. Her and her sister Mary had to walk to school. One day it rained really hard and the creeks got up, and they couldn't get across. Cleve Kirtlink [Revis & Geneva's Dad] rode a horse over and picked them up, and took them across the creek, as he knew Cleo and Cecil were working, and couldn't be there to get them.

"Tootie" enjoyed Country and Bluegrass music.
She was taught to play the Fiddle when she was [7] years old by her Dad [Cleo Ledford].
She played Fiddle, and even won some Fiddling contests. One particular fiddling contest she won she played the Tennessee Waltz, Be Honest With Me, and the Jimmie Rogers Blue Yodel #2.
