    OUR MOTHER as remembered by Wilna Marion HacklerMaynard-1990
    W.M.G.H. Our mother was the middle daughter of three girls of GeorgeHugh Gunter and wife Allie Mae Thompson Gunter. The oldst girl wasHaws ?? Gunter and she died as a very young child, I think she was twoyears older than Wilna and the younger sister was two years youngerthan Wilna. I remember there was a card in the small bible of mamma'sthat had a snap fastner on it. On the card were the names-
    Hugh G Gunter
    Allie MaeThompson Gunter
    Hawes ?? Gunter
    Wilna Mae Gunter
    Leta ?? Gunter
    Leta died in the summer of 1908 and I was born in October 1908. I wasborn at my grandmother home on Main Street in Dallas, Texas. Mammaoften talked of her family when we were working in the fields. Iespecially remember in the summer of 1927, mamma was expecting ourbaby brother, we had moved to Denton County in 1926 from Irving,Texas. As we (the whole family) worked in field made a good crop ofroasting ears, tomatoes, okra, cantaloupes and watermelons, our fatherMarion M. Hackler and two brothers of the family at that time wereFielden Burns (we called him Burns) and Barney G.W. Hackler went atleast every other day to the fruit veg and melon market on PeralStreet in Dallas. I was 17 years old had finished all the studiesthat Donald School offered that spring. I was active in my first timein 4H work, never missed a meeting but must be at home of night.Country people especially "girls" go home with each other, but I couldonly go when Dad was home as we were expecting a baby. What I reallyremember was mamma and I and sometime we would have a neighbor girlatour house for the night and we sat on the long back porch. All kidsin bed usually and I loved to get mama to telling us about hergirlhood.

    Grandpa Hugh and Grandma Allie Gunter lived near Coricana in NavarroCounty Texas. The three girls were born there, Grandpa Hugh farmed onthe halves. Haws the oldest girl died ther mama didn't remember hertoo much. She remembered they has a small wagon. They were threesmall girls didn't play with the wagon much. They grandma and threegirls put Haws and Leta, would ride in the wagon and after Haws died,they would put Leta in the wagon and Wilna (our mother)would helpgrandma pull the wagon and go to the Cemetery in late afternoon. Theywere very active in the Free Methodist Church. They had a grocerypeddler who come through the country buy their milk, butter, chickensand eggs. The peddler would exchange the produce for groceries.Their peddler was Rev Abe Mulkey. He was a very well known Methodistpreacher in all this part of Texas. Grandpa Hugh took pneumonia anddied when mamma was four years old in 1889 or 1890. When he died,grandama's brother who was a Free Methodist pastor, came and helpedwith the funeral, loaded what furniture, etc grandma and two girls(4&2 years
    old) took them home with him.

    Uncle Bob Thompson and family lived in Lawrence, Texas. They ran aboarding house for the school.(that was before free school) Grandmabecame a teacher there in Lawrence, lived in the boarding house ofschool with Uncle Bob R.A.thompson and Aunt Hattie Overton and her boyand girl, Clarence and Carry Overton.. Uncle Bob's first wife haddied, left two children, a boy and a
    girl, Neal and Daisy Thompson. Aunt Hattie's boy was the oldest ofthe group. Clarence led the bunch into lots of things and his sisterbeing the oldest girl, led the girls. Clarence would get them alloutside and start games like hide and seek. They were suppose to playgirls hide with girls, but Clarence would get Neal with one of twogirls and mama and the other girls with others and then Clarence wouldwalk off. All the younger ones would get punished and he would begone.

    We lived near a place owned by one of the neighbor boys who was mama'sage when I was 12 years of age. I helped the lady on his place gatherberries. He would come out and help us and tell me about going to thehouse. His name was D.Burch. He died just before we moved to DentonCounty. He would tell me I looked like mama at my age but not aspretty.

    Aunt Hattie was Hatties Self Overton Thompson. One of the Selfs cameto see mamma the day before she went to the hospital. She went onChristmas Day 1943 and died late the night of January 4, 1944. Wetook her back to Weston where they lived at that time for the funeral,then took her body to Shiloh Cemetery in southern Denton County.Mamma, Dad and two sisters(Viney and Veo) and brother George Hugh"Booster" are buried there.
