Lizzie Lee Davis and Doris Cummings

Lizzie Lee on the right, Doris on the left.

These two young girls were best friends, their two families living close to one another along Highway 25 south of Fulton.

Lizzie Lee (pronounced Lizlee) was my great-aunt, and years later Doris's sister, Coleen, would become my great-aunt when she married L. M. Robinson, my grandfather's brother.

It looks like the girls are standing on a railroad track.
