Kattie and Edd: 1940

Kattie and Edd: 1940

These are my maternal grandmother's maternal grandparents, Edd Hughes (1872-1952) and Kattie Isley (1883-1985). Circa 1940. They lived in Rockwall and Harrison counties in Texas from 1900 to the 1940s. Edd was a farmer and Kattie was a housewife. They had 10 children, 9 of whom lived to adulthood. They were members of the Mt Zion Baptist Church and lived near Waskom, Texas on the Louisiana border. Edd died in Longwood, Louisiana and Kattie died in Fort Worth, Texas.

Tough Lady

Kattie looks thin and not strong but ten children were born to her and she lived to 102 years old. That is a tough lady!
