This is Mrs. Rose Weather’s Daughter-in-law of Jesse James Weathers, she was married to Jesse’s son Lanier Weathers and she lives in Rock Mills at the old Home Place of Jesse Weathers who was a Half Brother to W D Pound, Jesse’s mother was an Ussery in the picture she is holding Pipes that were found in her Back Yard and Sherds stamped Pittman Bros, we have found several sherds in the back yard that are stamped Pittman Bros, so this tells us that this was at least one of the locations of the Pittman Bros. Shops and Jesse said to Lanier that his mother made the Pipes and this all ties togather since we have seen several Pipes from the early Ussery Shop close to Gus Creek in Bacon Level, Mrs. Rose Weather’s is 88 Years Old in this Picture and is still very active
