I was born september 12, 1928 in Trowser County Tennessee. I lived here until I was 21 then we left and went to Phoenix, AZ and stayed for 45 years.My DAddy raised tobacco on a farm,he would buy and sell it. We had 4 hogs and in winter time we would slaughter them, it was so cold. We would put them on top of the house for 3 days so the dogs wouldn't get them. Then Daddy would take them down and put salt on them. Mama took care of the house, she would cook for us. She raised us and took care of us, washed clothes, tended the garden which had cucumbers, tomatoes, peas, green beans, and potatoes. She use to make us pinto beans all day then she would cut up green beans and put them in there. There was a man who use to work with Daddy and he would say, "Mr. Holder, those are the best beans I've had in my life. Mama and Daddy got a job for the first time at Goodyear Aircraft, Mama worked on the B52; she worked there for 5 years until there laid her off and they gave her a gold pin.
