Shared note
Launa was always called "Booney" or Aunt "Booney" as early as I can remember. I later found out that "Booney" was my attempt at pronouncing Launa. I do not remember what Launa did while she lived with my folks. I do not believe she attended high school and I do not know whether she finished the eight grade. Sometime while we lived at 1202 North First Street, she met Douglas Pennington. From snapshots I conclude she lived with us until she married. My mother told me that while Launa lived with us that I stuck a broom into the coal-burning fire place in our house and when it had started to burn that I withdrew the firebrand and chased "Booney" with it. That ,of course, put me on the wrong side of the law! About 1926 Launa went to live with her sister, Lucy, and her brother in law Tracy, who lived at 1202 North First Street in Nashville, Tennessee. Died of cancer. [Tracy Robb]
