Sweet Miss Benita

I was finally able to get a photo with this dear lady. She is the last person I’m aware of  who actually knew Clara personally! How fantastic is that?!?! She has been a wealth of information regarding the McDonalds and surrounding families. It was such a joy to finally be able to share the finished product with her–she was excited, too!




When I *cough* interrogated Miss Benita about what she remembered about Clara, she said: “Clara really was the neatest lady. She wasn’t cranky or grumpy–I remember I liked her. I would have been only six or seven–she died when I was eleven–but I remember she was a sweet lady and was very king to us kids.”


Is that not amazing!?! I still can’t believe that I can TALK to someone to talked to Clara!
