Hi I believe this is my Mom's aunt-- Delphia Mills Hardy and her daughters; my Mom is Evelyn Pecolia Mills (Keaton) whose father is Mrs Mills-Hardy's brother. Her parents' farm was down the road across the road-- Henry and Jessie Mills. In that area, the Haddox Crossroads community, Mills siblings owned farms of @ 60-75 acres in all directions.
