The Braden family were among the early settlers of old Itawamba County and when Lee county was formed many all ready were there. This picture was taken in the backyard of my Grandparents home in Belden on the Memphis hwy . They built the home and moved in about 1935 or so. The lot is next to the Lane funiture factory in the valley, next to it. It was originally an Indian Mound, cleared for this house. This picture was taken Mother's Day 1975.
