    Notes 
    • Evelyn Mae Horne Harris 1913 - 1994. Evelyn and Aunt Mary lived at Mrs. Agee's rooming house on Brook Road in Richmond after they moved up here from Waverly. She graduated from Waverly High School and Massey-Ferguson Business College (poss also known as Smithdeal-Massey Business College in Richmond, VA.) She worked for the Commonwealth of Virginia, Christian Children's Fund and was an executive secretary in the men's division of Miller & Rhoades (where she retired from). She was a member of the Eastern Star and was Matron of Blanche Spencer Chapter of the Eastern Star. In later life and until she died, she lived at the Eastern Star Home in Richmond. She was an avid gardner and everyone remembers how she used to overload us with all types of squash. She attended Tabernacle Baptist Church in Richmond for 30+ years. Bought her house at 312 N. Meadow St and lived there for 20+ years. Prior to that she owned a house in the 1800b of Hanover Ave. She loved to cook and was always bringing her dishes to family events. She would adopt a family every Christmas and make sure they had a Christmas meal and that everyone in the family had presents, especially the children. She instilled in her son that sense of giving to those less fortunate. She was a truly dedicated Christian Woman.
