Family notes:
Virginia ( 3) remembered visiting her Great Uncle Harvey and “Aunt Annie” with her mother when she was little (about 1930). They lived on a farm on a big hill. They had to travel along a dirt road to get there (which she says was slippery when it rained). The house had an open narrow hallway dividing the bedrooms one one side from the rest of the house. They had no electricity. She remembered that they had no children.
