  • Note:
    *Healthy but mischievous child. Her first nickname was "Cotton"
    because her was so white. She was a hard worker and loved to
    work outside. She did most of the milking while her sister
    Mildred did the kitchen work. Mary Ellen was only three when her
    dad died. She remembers wanting to tag along that day but he
    sent her after picking her up and pulling a briar out of her
    foot. The same mischievousness got her attention from her
    grandmother Wright. She always wanted MayEllen as she called
    her, to stay with her. Mary Ellen would aggravate her by rolling
    around on her rugs from Atlanta. No one was allowed to step on
    the rugs. Her grandmother then would call on the phone to say
    MayEllen was having another one of her fits. They were the first
    family to have a phone.
  • Note:
    *Times were hard after her dad died. Her mother remarried, but
    times were still hard so before she was 16 she left. She went to
    work in Rome at the Cotton Mills and sent money home to her
    family. She had already met Cecil Morgan and when she would come
    home they would date. She had several beaus because she had
    turned into a beautiful woman. Tall, blackheaded with hazel
    eyes.
  • Note:
    *When she was 18 she got typhoid fever in Rome, she came home to
    get well and while she was home recovering she and Cecil got
    back together and got married.
