What was Mary Loudon Roberts' response about heritary hip problems?I'm curious because my grandfather (her son), my mother, and I all have had scoliosis (curvature of the spine).

An excellent source of information on these families of East Baton Rouge Parish is The Plains and the People:A History of Upper East Baton Rouge Parish by Virginia Lobdell Jennings.I was able to get a copy from amazon.com, and I believe there were others available from secondhand sellers.
