    Notes 
    • After Thomas Copeland died, the children lived with Effie at "Buck's Pasture" near Rayville. They used to walk up Highway 80 to get to school. Then they moved "between Clayton & Charity" on a bayou. Agnes remembers the move, because it was acco mplished mostly on foot. They walked all their belongings from one place to the next, including a stopover near the woods, where Effie made "beds" for the children in the leaves, near the edge of the woods. The family earned money by picking cot ton. Rosie & Ed were living behind the Shanks' house, in their pasture. Sambo & Versie moved to Harrisonburg and two weeks later he came to get the rest of the children. Agnes says that Effie, sick with cancer, had been trying to prepare he r & Florence for her death by telling them "I'm going to go away soon" and "One day soon I'm going to be with the Lord..." but Agnes says it "just went in one ear and out the other" because they didn't really understand. But two weeks after thei r arrival in Harrisonburg, Effie died. She hadn't been able to get out of the bed since the move.
