Notes for Rebecca Jane CONN
Claud Davis tells the following story aboout her:
I could tell you something about my Grandmother McGough. She lived just a little branch from us when I was a little boy growing up. And we used to go over to her house just about every day, and back in them days there weren’t any refrigerators or iceboxes, nothing like that. They just had a what you called an old cupboard, but she always had something good to eat in that old cupboard—sweetbread and all such stuff as that—and she would always give us something every time we were over there.

Claud Davis remembers when her sister Adaline would come over to her house, and they would sit in front of the fireplace smoking clay pipes.10
