Mama had always kept her important papers in a large black trunk, and when I was going through it I found 3 boxes of old pictures. Upon examination I found she had the pictures separated according to different families. Mother's maiden name was Vera Magnolia Reeves, and one of the boxes contained pictures of her Reeves family and her as a young girl. Most of the pictures dated back to the early 1900's, and every one of them had a story to tell. Mama was the youngest child, born May 21, 1913. Below is a picture of Mama's family which was probably taken shortly after they got their first car about 1924.
