Memoirs Part 4

1954, the year I started first grade, was a difficult time for my mother.  In April of that year her mother (Christina Ellen Tuttle Crawford) passed away while she was 8 months into her 9th pregnancy.  She was 40 years old and gave birth to a son less than a month later.  She brought this baby home to a rented houseful of kids and luckily a 17-year-old daughter to help out.

Then in October she had to be a support for her husband as he lost his father, Thomas Elbridge Logue.  My dad's parents had celebrated their 50th anniversary in March of this same year.

So, as I am growing and going to school, the Logue family was growing and changing, too.
