Alice lived with 1 year with Ireland and Maude in Chattanooga and went to Ridgedale Elementary School for the 6th grade. Alice was sickly in McClure and had to walk to school in the deep snows. So Sallie let her go with Maude and Ireland to Chattanooga for one year. She would ride the trolley cars around Chattanooga and to movie shows on Saturdays. Alice was able to ride a school bus to school at McClure and stay out of the snow the next year, so she went back home..
Ireland and Maude later moved to Stuart where he was the machinist for another lumber company and lived across the street from the mill.
