Inscription.  Lula Thrift, daughter of John Newton (born 1851) and Sally (Arnold) Sands (born1861) in the Georgia Bend Area stands in front of the home her husband Nathan Thrift built for her in 1919. At a cost of $25 the lumber was hauled from the sawmill by mule and wagon. The couple married when she was 16 and in a 1985 interview she had this to say...

"My mama never told me anything about men, for if she had of, I probably never would have got married. Mama kept all such stuff like that away from us children. All she'd ever tell me was that if I ever done anything ‘wrong', when she got through with me, I’d be sorry. But, she never told me what 'wrong' was. I'd ask her and she still wouldn't tell me. After I married and found out what it meant, it was too late, for I'd done jumped in the fire."
-- Lula Thrift. 1985
