At Work in the Mill – 2
“Daddy & His Doffers”
This photo was known in our home at Cliffside as ‘Daddy and his Doffers.’ Daddy (Thomas Mack Crow) is seated on the right and wearing a tie, hat and shoes. None of the boys in the photograph have been positively identified. Guy Harris of Cliffside has indicated he believes the third boy from the left and holding some item in his hand, is his father Weldon Harris. The fourth boy from the left favors some of the Melton’s in the Wilbur Melton family that lived near Cliffside.
—Judson “Bud” Crow
Update: An identification
The first boy on the left is my father, Bobby Dean Vickers. He was born In Cliffside and remained there until age 12, when the family moved to Sandy Mush. My father passed away in Feb of 2010. It was great to see another childhood photo of him and it immediately brought tears to my eyes.
