Twins, Doris and Dorothy Jackson
Twins, Doris and Dorothy Jackson, were born to Fred and Martha Bates Jackson in 1939. Here is a photograph of them in their little red wagon about a year or two old. It looks as though one of them is trying to push the other out or saying "move over!" They were born at the Old Sweatman Farm which is where this photograph was taken.
