(Susannah lost her mind after the 2 girls died in 1876--my grandmother

said she "just quit livin") I had always heard the 2 were twins, but that

was obviously incorrect.

Grandmother Frances GODFREY ROBERTS went to Wash. State in 1901, and had

always talked of the holler she grew up in on Huff Cr. In abt 1940 her

children gave her a trip to W.V. to visit her childhood home, and her

beloved sister, Evelyn. Her dau. Dona ROSS accompanied her.

Upon returning to Wash. the children asked her about the holler she grew

up in. Her answer was, "Land-a-goshen honey chile, between the road and the

railroad, there ain't no holler left."
