Interview Summary

Emma Rae Wells was born in 1923 in Virginia and her family moved to Auxier when she was a small child. Her earliest memory is when she started school in Auxier. She talks about leisure activities in Auxier, mentioning that on Sundays the children would roam across the hills or go to the movies in Paintsville on the train. She feels like there were some class distinctions in Auxier, and states that some children wore better clothes, had writing paper and books for school, and some children "picked their friends."
