Hi everyone,

Annie Bell did not ever forget the eight years in Uncle Sam's house.

They did not have children. Annie Bell became a woman, as an only child. Mama Sarah, our aunt, required Annie Bell to work in the fields from sunup to sundown, milk cows, feed livestock, and "tote" [carry] heavy bags of watermelons from the fields to their home.

Annie Bell was often tired, but kept her glorious smile.
