Editor's Note:
I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Lydia Myers' house is the one we have the picture of little Willard and Dorothy standing in front of squinting in the sun.  Because on June 1, 1903  Alice Cass is VERY pregnant with Dorothy.  I couldn't imagine being in the final weeks of pregnancy, riding on a dirt road, in a wagon, in the heat, with all your furniture strapped in the back and a toddler on your knee.  We have a cushy existence these days.

And yes indeed, Mom could definitely twirl fire!  :-)
