      After father left, mother was left with four children to raise. I don't know where the home was that we lived in, in Sebastian, but my brother described it to me as being north of Main Street, up the railroad track maybe a quarter of a mile on the east side of the tracks. My brother tells me about walking back and forth on the railroad tracks. When my sister was born he had to run down the railroad tracks all the way to get Aunt Sarah, because Aunt Sarah was the midwife. I used to ride the old train from Sebastian to Fellsmere when Aunt Sarah and Uncle Murray lived in Fellsmere. On that hot shot train they had out here. They ran the steam locomotive once a week and the other six days they ran a model T Ford with railroad wheels on it. I made many a trip on that Model T Ford. They had one car they pulled behind. When I was aboutfour years old, Mother and us kids moved to Lakeland. My mother, Ada, got a boarding hoouse in Lakeland that I had the opportunity to visit with my grandfather so much. Mother remarried but he lived only a short time. Mostly she was on her own. Mother and us kids would come back often to visit in Sebastian, especially after she got a car. Even during the depression we'd drive to Sebastian to visit relatives.
