McLane Family Farmhouse In East Texas ...

in the shadow of Kickapoo Mountain. That is Dudley's late father in law second from the right.  He and his three brothers and two sisters were raised on the family farm. His father was a carpenter and built this house I would guess back in the late 1920's or early 1930's. Things were pretty primitive as the house did not have indoor plumbing or electricity back in those days. They had a wood stove for heat and no air conditioning!  They used Kerosene Lanterns for light. It was a tough life compared to today's standards, but they survived and thrived. The photo of the house was taken around 1956. The kids all grew up and went out and started families of their own. The parents moved to town and the farm house sat vacant for a decade or two and finally was torn down and the lumber salvaged to build another farm house in the same location. And time marches on.
