Once upon a time, deep in the hills of southwest Virginia..
You are looking at a photograph (circa 1912) of my great grandfather
William 'Rowdy Bill' Wilson, & my great grandmother Annie Laura Clifton. 
In her arms is their first born - my grandmother, Mollie Wilson. This picture
is particularly precious to me. Two months after giving birth to my mother,
Mollie died four days shy of her 17th birthday. I had no photographs of her
until now, thanks to a cousin i met through Facebook.
