Here you go Patty –
The first picture is Ella Taylor, who was my grandmother’s sister.
My grandmother was Ida Taylor, who married Fitzugh Lee Neely, and their second child was my mother, Oma, who is in the next picture with Ella.
This is the house in Duffield where Ella lived until she died in the 1980’s. This house had 2 trees of life painted on the front of the house.
Ella’s parents were Sam and Amanda (Bishop) Taylor, and Ella (everyone called her Aunt Ellie) took care of her parents until they passed away, and never married and lived there until she died.
The house was later torn down, but the murals were saved and are now in the Appalachian Museum in Norris, Tennessee.
