Billie Bob states that she was born on Hamby Ranch in Calf Creek, TX. When asked about her grandparents, she wrote: "I remember Grandpa standing on the front porch as we came to visit one time. I remember Grannie real well many years, ...telling how they would cook a lot and going to church on Sunday for the day. The children would take naps on pallets. A funny thing Grannie told us about Grandpa before they were married, he always wanted to kiss her, so they were walking back from church one time with others & he wanted a kiss, so she just stopped in the middle of the road & said just kiss until you get tired. We had a good laugh."Billie Bob said the oldest person she can remember was "Grannie Attaway. I remember sleeping with her on her feather bed, Oh how good it felt when you snuggled beside her & the bed just folded you in; also her seemingly big kitchen."
