Bad Teeth

"After the Depression come, that's about the time Daddy's health got real bad, when he left Acworth, in about 1931. In fact, they didn't think he was going to live — they thought he had TB. They just knew he was going to die from it. But it was his teeth! Because his teeth were so bad. But they left Cherokee County to come back to Haralson County. He said, 'Well, if I'm going to die, I'd rather be in Haralson County.'" -- Denver Bishop

"They thought it was the mill that was ruining his health. They told him to get out of the mill and get back on the farm, get back in the country. And he did. But when he had his teeth pulled he regained his health and he was fine." -- Mildred Bishop Munroe
