      “Recollections of Betty Musso, daughter of Ruby Yates”; I have been wracking my brain trying to remember some of the things Mom told me about the Yates. The first thing I can remember is when Grandma Yates went to town and left the boys at home on the farm. She came home to find they had stripped the bark off the fruit trees. She said, "Who told you boys to do that?" Mom always laughed when she told me that story. Of course I heard it many times. When the small pox epidemic hit the family Mom, Ruby, was three years old. They tied her hands to keep her from scratching her face and she would turn over and rub her face in her pillow. She was always conscious of the scars it had left but I don't think anyone else ever noticed.

      You probably know grandmother came from a wealthy family. Grandpa Yates worked on the railroad and in about 1903 he came home to the farm with Small Pox, there he and one of the daughters died. Mom, (3 yrs) Ruby Eva also had small pox but survived. In those days people didn't understand how the disease was transferred, they were just panicked. After grandma had lost her husband and daughter she moved her other children to the much smaller farm house that was down over the hill from the large family home. One morning they woke up and discovered their large home had been burnt to the ground. So Mary Ellen was left to raise (6)? children by herself.

      I can remember her living with us for at various times in Indiana. My first memory of her was how she combed her hair, which hung down her back, into a bun and pinned it with large hair pins. Also she would keep orange peels in her dresser drawer and eat on them like candy; probably much better for her. She lived with us again when we lived outside Anderson, Indiana and I do have pictures of her fishing with us on the bank of a river. She wore an old-fashioned sunbonnet. Good memories of her! Betty
