Stories of a Great Lady
My Grandmother and
Grandfather, Marie and Arnold Hall use to talk about her all the time.
They said she was a great lady, and would sing gospel songs the whole time that
Grandma was in labor.
you, D. Hall for this contribution,
My name is Charles Crase Jr. My father's name
was Charlie Crase Sr. My mother's name was Josephine. We lived at
Helechawa Ky. I was delivered by Aunt Ellen Lewis March the 19th,
1943. I have a twin sister Jeanette Crase Fiebke, also a brother Herbert
Crase born March the 17th, 1941 also delivered by Aunt Ellen Lewis. My
uncles grew up with Aunt Ellen's children. My oldest brother told me
about going to get Aunt Ellen, they had to cross a footlog. He said he
hid the lantern behind him, and she said you do that again young man and I'll
go back home. My brother said my sister was born first and Aunt Ellen
said I think there is another one. My brother said dad jumped up and
said that's hell on a poor man. I was number 13.
Thanks for this contribution, Charles,
Joan & Diane
