This is one of the last get togethers of the Arville and Mary Gilliam Family in Kentucky.
Arville, laid-off school teacher, has taken a war industry job in Dayton, Ohio and has been commuting with his family on desolate Brushy Creek. In March 1943, mom and five children packed everything we owned and rode the train to Cincinnatti and on to our new home in Dayton Ohio - where we lived above and behind an abandoned barber shop at 852 South Brown Street.
