      THE WRITER'S IMMEDIATE FAMILY . . .

      I was born in the Flat Creek Community [Bedford County, TN] on September 14, 1906. On August 9, 1938, in the City of Nashville, Tennessee, I married Marihall Walker, who was born in Columbia, Tennessee, May 13, 1916, the daughter of Elias Russell and Mary Emily Hall Walker. . . . Marihall's mother died July 28, 1959, and her father August 15, 1968. They are buried in Highland Memorial Cemetery, Knoxville, Tennessee, in the Frost-Walker plot.

      Marihall and I met in Knoxville, Tennessee, in the fall of 1937. She was a student at the University of Tennessee, and I a teacher at old Knoxville High School. Retiring as Principal of Park Lowry School June 1965, I remained Treasurer-Manager of Knoxville Teachers Credit Union until August 1971, when I retired from this position which l had held for twenty-nine years.

      In June 1967, I became Executive Secretary of Knoxville-Knox County Retired Teachers Association, a non-remunerative but time-consuming and deeply rewarding position during a period of considerable legislation and litigation on behalf of retired teachers. I had served previously in numerous capacities in professional organizations, including . . . President of the Tennessee Education Association in 1949. Among organizations with which Marihall has been affiliated are United Daughters of the Confederacy, Daughters of the American Revolution, Daughters of American Colonists, and Virginia-Intermont College Alumni Association. Of the last named she served as National President for years. Since the year of our marriage, we have been members of First Baptist Church of Knoxville.

      We have two children, a daughter and a son. Mary Angelin (Marilyn) was born December 1, 1940. On August 14, 1965, in the City of Knoxville she married Gary Lee Bailey, who was born in Aurora, Missouri, January 25, 1939, the son of Harold Reeves and Freda McVey Bailey. They met in the fall of 1964 in Kitzingen, Germany, where Marilyn was a teacher of the children of American Occupational Forces, Gary was then Aide de Camp to General William H. Birdsong, Jr., from which he resigned shortly thereafter with the rank of Captain. At the time of this writing they make their home in Atlanta, Georgia, where their two sons, John Wesley and David Wright Bailey, were born May 8, 1968, September 12, 1970, respectively.

      Our son, Russell Walker Frost, was born November 18, 1945. At date of this writing he is unmarried and living in Concord, North Carolina, his grandfather Frost's only grandson to carry the Frost name.
