There is a group of Oklahoma Indians, and their families, living on Hillsborough Ave. It looks like a labor camp. I can't read what the occupation is; it looks like "furniture maker" but I know that can't be right. Sam had never attended school, Mandie and Lovedia had attended school for 4 years.
Five years earlier, they had all lived in New Orleans.
