I found my parents on the 1940 census record and never knew the grandmother that saved my brother’s life lived with them. This is the house they lived in for the 1940 census. David was born at this home and they had two family doctors at the delivery. Both of them declared that David was dead just after birth. Mothers grandmother was there along with her mother and the old grandmother Nannie Anderson/Craig/Hall said “Oh no, he isn’t dead,” and she picked him up and spanked his butt and he started crying. I wonder who got paid for the delivery? Grandma saved his live. You can see a picture of Grandma Nancy Jane Anderson (Craig-Hall) in my tree. This is a picture of the my mother Myrtle Montgomery and David Montgomery (very much alive) taken not long after the 1940 census record.
