The Life of an Octogenarian

ByBertha Lee Redden Shaw

Nearing the end of her life, 83 year old Bertha Redden was asked by her daughter to write her life story. In 1960 she sat down and produced a surprisingly engaging hand-written manuscript. Although she has been gone over 50 years, her story propels us into the “good old days”. Her memories of a simple life in a small town are a celebration of two lives; young Bertha and her sturdy mother, Susannah. Her story is filled with detailed descriptions of life on a small farm in the horse and buggy days. It is told with warmth by the youngest of four children raised by an industrious Civil War widow. Book also includes many photos of Traders Point from the collection of Traders Point resident Eddie Hightshue. Edited by Ross Reller of Traders Point
