Notes for Dora Ellen White:
Dora was my great-grandmother and I called her "little grandma" and remember her as a tiny old lady who was afraid to ride in a car.My mother was born in the house that Little Grandma owned and I loved to visit that house because it seemed so unusual to me.First of all it had a veranda that went around most of the house and was great to play on and smell the honeysuckle.This house also had the kitchen in the basement, a cool dark, forbidding place.My Uncle Albert and Aunt Pauline (Coffin) Swaim now live in the house and have their kitchen upstairs!
