Lillie Smith Bates grandchildren, Katherine Grogan and Jenny Bates

This is a photo of Lillie Smith Bates with her grandchildren, Katherine Grogan and Jenny Bates, in 1947.  Katherine Grogan is the daughter of Tommy and Vada Bates Grogan. Jenny Bates is the daughter of J.B. and Lois Sims Bates.  All the kids were barefoot in the pictures. They only had one pair of shoes a year. They had to pull them off after school and save them for Sunday. Many of the grandchildren grew up close to grandma.
