married very young, 1933, to Bert Carr who was 12 years older. In 1934, she and Bert and baby Donna Rae, with her brother Albert, headed out to California in Bert's 1926 truck. They went south until they reached Highway 66 and then traveled clear to Bakersfield CA on that road. They were in the Dust Bowl until they reach Tucumcari, NM. They made about 300 miles a day, mostly because of the poor road conditions of that day. In Gallup NM they sold some chocolate E-Lax for candy, to make a little traveling money. These items Bert had taken from his father's Tavern (so I was told). At Bakersfield, they turned north on Highway 99 and headed to Richmond where other family were living. The Carrs lived in the Richmond area for several years before galavanting all over the state. Bert had worked as a mechanic for Wisebereg Co. and for a battery rebuilding plant in Emeryville. They then ran a bar at 7 Mile House near Marysville CA. and one at Midway near Stockton, CA. Over the years they lived many places, ran Bars, gas stations, Cafes, and worked construction. They once had a beautiful home near Camino, up from Placerville, CA where they ran a Bar/cafe on highway 50. They sold it and moved on as Cordy was fearful that David, who was a baby, would fall into a large ditch near the home and drown. Visiting this aunt was always a vacation as they seemed to live in the best vacation places. When visitors would leave to return home, the standard joke was Cordy's comment that she was going to get down and kiss the rug after they left.
