Mother told of only being able to obtain drinking water by dipping her hands in the toilet.

Such stories both horrified me and evoked a strong sense of compassion for any child who had been placed there. A friend of one of the workers at the Corsicana State Home, a relatively successful business woman in town..a personal interest in her, apparently in mother's early teenage years.

She remembers him crying as he tearfully hugged his daughters, who were then only 2 and 8 years old..said his "goodbye'. Connie and Ethyl were sent to live with their paternal grandmother, in Alsa, a small community about 2 miles northwest of their farm, which remains today, near the southwestern shore of Lake Tawakoni.

In May 1916, only 2 years later, their 63 year old grandmother succumbed to the Spanish Flu in a terrible epidemic that swept the nation and world, of millions of that generation of souls.

Afterwards, it was decided that the girls would then be placed in the Texas State Home for Children in Corsicana... (The state orphanage, while then a large facility by any standard, no longer exists today).

Mother kept within her a "secret" that she was to share with anyone. There were occasions in my youth when I would sense mother's melancholy.Photograph of my mother Connie and younger sister Ethyl, believed to have been taken at the Texas State Orphanage in Corsicana, circa 1918.Within a few days after this photo was taken, Ethyl (left) died of complications of the now famous Spanish Flu epidemic, apparently leaving Connie as the only survivor of her family's tragedy.We never talked about going there..never even went as far east as Athens.I sometimes found myself wondering what Wills Point was like.
