She discusses many customs and traditions surrounding those early years (Christmas, dancing, etc.). She married in 1947 and had seven children. Most of their life was spent in a coal camp at Leatherwood, Kentucky. She and her husband, Robert, moved to Cumberland in 1970. Her husband had been injured in 1963 and retired from coal mining.
