I was born August 12, 1929 at Brownsboro and Dr. Skaggs delivered me. Luther and Minnie Strain Purvis were my parents. Mom grew up in Trimble and Daddy grew up in Henry County.
I am the only child still living, I was the youngest, out of 10 children. There were seven girls and three boys. My oldest sibling was about 20 years older than me.
