    HEY REB!!!!! That was not considered child labor back in that day.

    It is called.............SURVIVAL!!!! You can see it in their eye's...........
    And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands: and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Rev. Chap.20 Vs.4)

      Most of my paternal aunts started working in the cotton mill when they were 10 years old. They worked after school or only went to school 3 days a week and worked the others. The uncles worked on the farm or they too would have been in the mill. It was just a way of life back in those days.
