    Notes:

    My grandmother was very dear to me. I spent several weeks in several summers with my Richmond grandparents in Cleveland, Tennessee. They knew of my love for baseball, and enrolled me in little league at least a couple of times. We'd run up into the Smoky Mountains occasionally, or go down to Rock City or up to Aunt Mattie's home. They took me to a family reunion in Spencer at least once. Granddad also would take me fishing on Tennessee River lakes.

    I remember Grandmother as nurturing, and I remember her smile - and I long for the taste of her dill seed bread. She taught grade school, and I learned about the Trail of Tears and other stories of American history from her. In later years, she was an avid bird-watcher and was able to attract many birds to her garden window.

    I suppose that her nurturing attitude toward me is sadly ironic, considering that, as a mother, she was so dedicated to the overwhelming care of her physically and mentally disabled son Joe Robin (my namesake, who died at 17) that she was not particularly nurturing to my father and his sisters when they were young.

    She carried pain from her younger years throughout her life. She was not able to talk about Joe Robin; I never learned where his name came from. She never got over her anger toward the girl who tripped her 14-year-old sister Clemma, causing a fall from which she died with a ruptured spleen. Nor could she let go of her bitterness toward her step-mother, who was disliked (to put it mildly) by all of her siblings, and who repeatedly threatened to send Edith to an orphan home.

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    From James Murphy (her sister Mattie's son-in-law):
    Edith Kuykendall Hutcheson married Clarence L. Richmond on July 23, 1923. They had four children. They lived in Cleveland, Tennessee where Clarence had a successful insurance agency. Since Edith was the youngest daughter, she had the youngest husband. Her sisters were all widows. In their retirement years Clarence and Edith would take Mattie, Fannie and Mary on long trips through the west and other parts of the country. They were all big talkers and all would try to tell you about the trips at the same time.

    Notes:

    Leander Travis Hutcheson Sr. married Alma Freiley in 1910. None of his children approved, or got along well with her - to say the least. My (Robin's) Grandmother, Edith, was 11 at the time, and she told us that her stepmother regularly threatened to send her away to an orphanage. At age 98, Edith still resented her step mother bitterly.

    James Murphy (husband of L.T.'s granddaughter Elizabeth Swallows) reports:
    None of Leander Travis Sr.'s children should have married "Miss" Alma and as soon as they could they went on their own. After Grandpa died Jan. 16, 1934 she never shared anything from the home with any child. There was one exception: "Miss Alma" after some time married a Mr. Howard and lived on the Sparta-Cookeville highway and then one day in the 1950's Mattie Hutcheson Swallows stopped and asked her to give the family Bible with all the family records to her. She agreed to do so. It was rebound and the broken sheets were laminated.
