This is a rare picture that my mother found. This is a picture of my grandmother, Eula Gourley Bivens, along with seven children. At this time my grandmother had already lost one of her daughters, Gracie, in 1929. This picture was taken in probably the summer of 1937. This picture is one of only two (that I know of) that has my aunt, Ellen Caroline, who died at three years of age. This picture has Eula holding a newborn Ellen, Tina in the hat, Della in back holding on to Daisy, and sitting in front is Dorothy, Allen and Phillip.
