Notes for Bertha Ann Culton:
From my Mother's (Earmel Case) notes:
This is written as she took the notes while talking with her mother and I have left it much the same.

Bertha Ann Culton was born in a log cabin, in Aurora MO. They left there and went to Jasper County. After the third grade, she had to stay home and help out. They rented and moved around a lot. Moved to Mount Grove, was all grown over so they had to clear the land to grow crops. Brother Winifred came home to help farm. They traded a small farm for a larger farm, lived there several years. Went into debt for live stock, when they couldn't pay it off, they sold and moved back to Jasper Co. She was 15 then. Her father built a 2 room log house by a spring. He built a box and let water run through to keep the milk and butter cool. "Every time it rained, we'd have to get it out before it floated away. Chris took a farm across from us. I was living here when I married Frank at age 19." They raised hogs and cattle, wheat and corn. During (*)Mad Dog Days, "chased mad dog all day. During the night, Winifred sleep walked to the field to a straw stack, (let cattle run in field) a wonder he hadn't come across mad dog." "Dad made sorghum from cane after we moved to Jasper. He had a vat 10' long to cook it in. I took the foam off the sugar."

Left there to Texas County in 2 covered wagons, came back in a wagon and covered hack.

At 7 years, went to school at Oceola. Her Grandma had knitted a scarf and mittens for her to wear to school.

"Daddy worked at mines with Mom's half brother Winifred. When first married, they were working at mines in Alba. They would have to wear rain coats and rain hats in the mines. Daddy worked in ground, grandpa was wendlen (?) on top. Later, used a horse to work mine??????. Pulled buckets of dirt up, Grandpa would jig the ore (lead) and take it to Webb City to sell. Mom and Merl Walker went down in the mines at Alba. Their last one was at Duenweg. They had a buyer for it but it caved in that night. Daddy then worked loading gravel. He went to work at Atlas for eight years. He quit and moved to Alba then to Carthage, a farm on spring River and worked mines again."

"I now had three babies and was tired of staying at home. I'd take the horse and buggy and go visit his folks and stay a few days. I'd hitch up the horse and buggy again and go visit my folks at Alba. We then moved from the West end of Duenweg to a log cabin. By then, I had four girls. Worked the mines again. We lost everything and had to sell pigs, cows, horses, kept one to ride, Alta went to school with Sams oldest girl. Cases lived on 7th st. corner near Valentines place. Grandpa went into store business. Sam took over the store and gave credit to the customers. He soon lost the store due to this practice. Moved to Atlas again."

Much of this sounds disjointed and I am not sure of the sequence but the general idea seems to be they were very poor people and couldn't seem to get ahead, no matter what they tried.

* Mad Dog Days were from mid Aug to mid Sept. Dogs would go "mad" at this time. I am sure this was actually rabies.
