Talk about a lady and a legend. Our great-grandmother Mary – Little Granny – lived a life it’s hard for us to even fathom.

The oldest child and only girl, Mary was thrust into the maternal role as a preteen with the untimely death of her mother, essentially raising her younger brothers. We are fortunate enough to have some letters of hers that tell of their log cabin lifestyle – of stuffing cotton in the cracks to cut the winter wind, of hiding soldiers beneath the porch, of tending to the fields and her family. There are stories of small-town Saturday night dances and her beloved horse with a mind of its own. It is fascinating to have these pieces which paint a portrait of Mary as a young girl and adolescent, before we knew her, before she taught us to sew and embroider, before she made our school clothes, before she became our Little Granny.

It is our heritage that defines us and the role models that came before us
