Thursday's Questioning Where Were You Born
I like to know things about people. Like when and where you were born. Care to share with us today??
I was born in a very little town in Kansas in 1951. The name of the town was Nashville. The name originated in 1885 because some of the settlers came from Nashville, Tennessee. It became a thriving community after the Atchinson, Topeka, & Santa Fe railroad came through. Big business at that time was selling cattle and wild horses. A small hospital was built in 1926 by Dr. J.B. Morton. Several years later the practice was taken over by Dr. T. L. Waylan and his wife, Francis, a registered nurse. He is the doctor who delivered me and all my siblings, but one. He practiced in Nashville until his retirement in 1981. The hospital closed and fell into disrepair. We visited it a few years back and I took pictures but I cannot find them at the moment. The hospital looked like a long house. The doctor and his family lived in the front part of it. My brother and sister were the first twins born there.
Now tell me where and when you were born!!
