First Child

Hello Dear Reader,
After several months of living in Fry and because Grandma (Mary Hall) Carter was pregnant she and Wes moved to Bisbee where Mary could be near a doctor. Bisbee was 45 miles from Wes’s work so he drove ninety miles each day and, remember, this was long before freeways were even thought of.

Wesley Kent Carter, Wes and Mary’s first child, was born in the Copper Queen Hospital. According to Grandma (Mary), “It was too soon and [he was] too small. We nearly lost him. In desperation we finally took him to the fort to a [Colonel] Major Moore who helped to get him started.”
