                          SCOTT FAMILY OF MAYSVILLE, MILL CREEK, OK

 

THIS WAS THE YEAR WHEN GRANDPA JONATHAN W. RISNER OF GARFIELD MO.
HAD HIS DRIVER BRING HIM TO MILL CREEK, OKLAHOMA

           STORIES TOLD BY UNCLE WARREN SCOTT AND AUNT MARTHA

1. UNCLE WARREN IS HOLDING A JACK KNIFE.

2. AUNT MARIE IS HOLDING A PURSE THAT MELINDA RECEIVED BECAUSE MELINDA WANTED HER PURSE TO SHOW UP IN PICTURE. IF SHE’D HELD THE PURSE IT WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN SEEN AND SHE WAS VERY PROUD OF IT. MELINDA WAS TO OLD FOR DOLLS AND RECEIVED A PURSE INSTEAD.

3. ALL THE GIRLS COATS ARE HAND ME DOWNS WITH THE ONE EXCEPTION ONE AND IT’S THE ONE ON AUNT LOTTIE. SHE HAD THE NEW COAT AND IS THE ONLY ONE SMILING IN PHOTO.
