Family history as told by Mary Jane Marr in the spring of 1964

Grandpa Maberry had a brother living near him, Uncle Jake Maberry. He had some of the best apples, variety Porters. They hung over the fence where we could reach them. He told us to help ourselves, and we did on our way to and from school. Arkansas apples were so good those days--no spray and no worms. This old uncle got a bad corn on his toe. He was a blacksmith so he went out to his shop, put his foot on the anvil, took a coal chizel and hammer and cut that toe off.
