(Salt Lake City, 1987), pp. 95-96, Linnie writes about her hard childhood on the 1000 acres of farmland: “We children worked in the fields, hoed and picked cotton, gathered corn, milked many cows, fed hogs and were slaves in our childhood days.

The boys attended the University or agricultural College and turned out fairly well. For more information on this book, click above.
