November 1952

Sometimes a thoughtful individual, aware of mortality, aware of forgetfulness, will write names on the back of a photo. On the back of this photo, left to right, Ernest Bibb, Clarence Spencer, James Branham, Leo Johnson and John Drumheller.

Clarence Spencer was Clarence Edward Spencer, Sr., my grandfather. For many years Grandaddy worked for the railroad as a fireman but I never knew him as anything but the night watchman for the Woolen Mills. Many were the times when my sisters and I would accompany my Dad as he took his father, Grandaddy, dinner. We would meet him at the main door to the mill as he made his rounds and often he will allow us into the mill - as long we didn't wander off. Grandaddy's wife, Irene Goolsby Spencer, worked at the mill as a weaver. Their house still stands on Chesapeake Street and is still inhabitated by a Spencer descendent.
