A Baby Girl--Happy Birthday Today

Hello Dear Reader,
At the time of Grandpa (Edward F.) Carter’s death Mary was expecting another baby. Wes and Mary sold their trailer and rented a house from Herman and Bertie Allred at 1100 West 5th North. When Carol was born August 3, 1942, they took their new baby girl home from the hospital to that house.

The house had coal stoves and when winter arrived Wes and Mary found the stoves inadequate for heat. Both Kent and Carol got pneumonia. Carol was so sick she had to be hospitalized for some time. This was another trying time for new parents.
