There were never such devoted sisters
Never had to have a chaperon, no sir
I'm here to keep my eye on her
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrives from Rome
She wore the dress and i stayed home
All kinds of weather
We stick together
The same in the rain or sun
Two different faces
But in tight places
We think and we act as one... uh-huh
Those who've seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up but no one can
Lord help the mister
Who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister who comes between me and my man
~ by Irving Berlin
|Violetta was the older one.|
My grandfather's sisters were always "Violetta and Velma," never "Velma and Violetta." We said it like it was one word.
|Velma and Violetta some time in the 1940s, I guess.|
I don't know why they were dressed alike. They didn't usually.
My great-grandmother and her sisters
|My favorite picture of the sisters - complete with watermelon!|
Lined up from youngest to oldest:
Vic, Sallie, Mary Frances, Leanna, Laura, Emma
Julia with Lillie, Mae, Margaret, Helen, Cat, and Tate
My granny Julia and her sisters Catherine (Cat) and Teresa (Tate) were HALF sisters with Lillie, Mae, Margaret, and Helen. No one ever made a distinction about that "half" business.
|The Killeen girls|
|Lillie Killeen, Helen K. Parker, |
Mae K. Holland, Julia W. Slade
|My grandmother Lucille Rucker Davis|
and older sister Rosalind Basham
|Wendy and Mary Jollette|
|Wendy and Mary Jollette|
We did not intend to dress alike. It just happened. Seriously.
