Abstract Interview of Frances Marlin by Glenda Scott.

Interviewer's description-
"Mrs. Marlin was born in Tennessee, January 27, 1917, but when she was a young girl her family moved to Harlan County, Kentucky near Brookside where her father worked at various coal mines. Her father was active in the U.M.W.A. and the Ku Klux Klan and she tells several anecdotes about his experiences. She met and married Charlie Marlin when she was sixteen and they moved to Bardo where they lived for 19 years. During their years at Bardo, they reared six children (five girls and one boy). They eventually moved to Sunshine, Kentucky in Harlan County. There are several comparisons of her youth and the way contemporary youth differ."
