  • Notes 
    • " My mother, Almira Main (Mide she was always called) was a rather small woman, had just black straight hair (which wasn't fashionable in those days) dark eyes, olive skin and beautiful white teeth. All her family seems to have those perfect teeth. When I was a child she was ill or as they used to say, " ailin' " frequently. Having children was a real ordeal for her. She had five of us and several miscarriages although I never knew what was wrong at the time. When I was about seven or eight I can recall vividly when they thought she wouldn't make it. There wasn't a hospital in miles and miles. Our faithful family doctor came and stayed at our house, right by her bedside and she lived.

      As to talents— she could sew beautifully and she did have a great talent for loving and giving of herself and her time to anyone who had a sad story to tell. I can't really remember her faults unless not standing up for her rights would be called that. She didn't crack down on us kids very hard and I'm sure we needed it. Dad was away from home a lot. She'd give us a swat on the rear now and then and sometimes send us out to get a switch so she could switch our legs if we had been really ornery. Then she'd usually say, "Now if you promise not to do that again I'll not use the switch this time." We— Kit and I— got onto the fact that if we brought a real heavy stick, Mom would be so horrified at the thought of using it, we'd usually get off scott-free. (She should have put us in the rain barrel and held us down for the long count of ten.)

      My first year in school, Kit and I walked a mile or so to school. One day in early fall we found our house had burned to the ground. No fire department, no running water just neighbors with buckets. Water dipped from a nearby creek. Mom had got out with Logan— all our family pictures, mementos, everything just ashes.

      From there we went to Nebo (into town) again. Grandpa Hack, out of the goodness of his heart, bought us (among other things) an entire bolt of calico. Out of this Mom made dresses for herself and Ima and I. Curtains, bed spreads, shirts for Pop and Logan and Kit, stool covers, doilies, you name it we had it. That green background with tiny yellow flowers I'll never forget. Today, no doubt, it would be classic." Source: Irene Hack
