Patricia Evans on the Stott house front walk, 1933

Daughterofthedelta takes a slight detour today to wish Happy Birthday to everyone’s favorite aunt, Patricia Evans Ellington Evans. She completed the Evans family circle while they lived in Jackson, and she’s taken care of each and every one of us through the years and the generations. Happy Birthday, Tricia……We love you!

Hello....I'm in possession of a priceless collection of memoirs and memorabilia left by my mother, Sara Evans Criss. She was a native and lifelong (88 years!) devotee of our small town, who covered this peculiar and volatile corner of the world for 30 years as the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Greenwood bureau chief, a job that started out with debutantes and high school football and wound up spang in the midst of one of the twentieth century's most enduring social upheavals. This blog is dedicated to her memory and the legacy she left behind, both for her family and her community.

    Love the boots!
