Born June 1, 1918 in Somerset, KY. Lived on Pulaski Street. Moved in 1924 to Chattanooga, TN.

Sometime in 1925 we moved to a house on Gillespie Rd. overlooking Eastdale. I attended 2nd grade at Sunnyside School.  At this time Daddy had moved with the Southern Railroad from Somerset to Chattanooga. In 1928 we moved to Cleveland, TN where I attended Arnold Memorial school. Daddy left the Railroad and Uncle Doc gave him a job with Sinclair Refining Company. He was the district manager of the Cleveland area. Financial problems resulted because of the failure of friends to pay off their accounts to Sinclair and Daddy lost his job. We returned to Chattanooga in 1932 and moved back to the house on Gillespie Road. Since the owner had failed to keep up the payments, Daddy had to take on the old note and had to pay on it the rest of his life.  I attended Brainerd Junior High for 9th grade, and then went to Central High School for grades 10, 11, & 12.  I attended Wiley Business School in the Summer of 1936 and got a job March 15, 1937 with The Home Stores, located at 1214 Broad Street in Chattanooga.
