"My parents wus both in the Civil War. He was Levi Berthy and she was

Misson Berthy. Mid Hill was mother's owner. She said he was better to

them than most owners. He never whooped 'em. Mother was real light and

father was dark. I was born in Pinola County, Mississippi. I had a

stroke five years ago. I can't walk a step for two years now. My parents

didn't let us hear them talk, they sent us out to play, then they died

before they got old. I never heard much of their own lives. I live with

my daughter and her husband. I don't get Welfare aid."
