Miss Geneva Schloetzer was born April 29, 1923 at 8:30 in the morning. She weighed 9lbs. when she was born. She didn’t heal up good. We had Dr. Bucklin for her 3 times. Geneva first wore a button fixed with cotton. Then the doctor put plaster on her. She then healed up in good shape. First trip we made with her was sometime in June. We started to Bucklin with her. We got as far as Coats. Roads were so bad.
