Geneology: My Maternal Grandmother

This is my maternal grandmother. She was a "bootlegger" during The Great Depression. The family was really poor during the depression, so they had to do something to get by. I don't know how they came up with distilling moonshine, but there it is! The picture on the left is "Nanny" with her still; on the right she's holding a barrel of moonshine. Nanny was a tough old cookie; oh the stories I could tell. And I might...someday!
