Corrie and Maggie's Third Child.
Their Children are in order:

L.J Heath Born 1949
Francis Heath Born 1951
Billy Gene Heath Born 1955
Cynthia Heath Born 1958
Howard Heath Born 1959
Helen Heath Born 1962

Whew!! Ten Kids but that was a norm back in the day.
My Grand paw Corrie was a sharecropper on a farm and he was in World War 2.
My mama told me how they all would work the fields in the summer chopping cotton.
I remember spending summers with my Grandparents and seeing my Grand paw driving the tractor plowing from sun up to sundown. He was so handsome and could tap dance like Bill Robinson!!
Now that's the truth. He was something else. I can remember the smell of his old spice. 
He died in 1986. My Grand Mother in 1990.
