March and April 1958

March & April of 1958 were the months of remodeling their new house in Springdale...Mammaw wrote very little.  I realize now that this was likely a very large and stressful undertaking for them.

March 1 – 2

March 3
Monday.  Started remodeling house.  700 S. Pleasant – Springdale

March 4 – 11

March 12
Wednesday.  Brother Willie’s birthday.
Her oldest brother William Henry Hays had died, age 44, in 1922.  He was born March 12, 1878.

March 13 – 17

March 18
Tuesday.  Roscoe Hays’s birthday
Roscoe was my grandmother's first cousin - son of William Richard Hays, brother to her Dad. Roscoe was 72 on this day.

March 19 – 30

March 31

Spent the month of March remodeling.  Terrible weather.  Some headaches & problems for Kenney and me.

April 3
Thursday.  Grandma’s Birthday
Grandma Comstock was 91 this year.

Actually Sunday of 1958 was April 13.  Perhaps an example of the stress.
