Mary Frederickson
Back to talk about when your family lived on a farm just a little bit? Did your father own the land that he worked?

Flossie Moore Durham
No, he rented a farm then. Worked mules then.

Mary Frederickson
What did he plant?

Flossie Moore Durham
He planted cotton and corn and wheat, too, and really had a good farm. So after he died, it looked like we couldn’t keep a-going on the farm.

Mary Frederickson
Was he a pretty young man when he died?

Flossie Moore Durham
He died almost sudden. He wasn’t but forty-three when he died. And it left us, and it left my mother in a bad shape. Along them days there wasn’t any money coming in much. We lived; we never went hungry; we hever went cold. But I’ve often wondered how she kept us all a-going.

Mary Frederickson
How long did she stay on the farm after he died?

Flossie Moore Durham
We didn’t stay but a few months after he died, just gathered that crop and then we moved to Bynum.
