Keely Greer's Cotton Gin

The gin stood across the Lexington Road from Chalky Level. The boll weevil destroyed the cotton crop, causing financial hardship for many families, including the Greers.

Keely's horse Dandy

Dandy was Keely Greer's pride - they cut a fine figure bowling down Lexington Road toward town. The tree is a holly.
