  • Notes 
    • As a little girl, seven or eight years old, Barbara had diptheria, and she and her mother were quarantined in the bedroom for quite a long time. Her grandfather used to come outside the window, and her mother would open it, and her grandfather would pray for her. Her youngest brother Ezra slipped into the bedroom one time and did get a touch of diptheria but not as serious.
