"The one big difference between my mother’s upbringing and that of my father's was in the area of strictness. My father’s early interest in and involvement with horse racing would not have been tolerated in the Walker family. While my grandfather Jim Barrow influenced and encouraged my father towards the Baptist church, the inducements towards Sunday School and church attendance in the Walker family would’ve been much more direct and emphatic. My mother was baptized early in her life, and the Baptist church in Nacogdoches played a very big part in her early years. Cumie’s life in terms of social activities was also quite strict. Make-up women was not permitted, being considered an outward manifestation of inward worldliness. Her dating life was also taken quite seriously by her family. Henry Barrow was one of the earliest beaus in Cumie’s dating experiences.
So much has already been written about our growing-up years that to cover the subject again might seem repetitive. But just about everything that has been written has been untrue or exaggerated. I, as the remaining member of the Barrow family, feel it necessary to try to correct the misinformation concerning both my parents and my siblings. For example, one published account stated that my father was short and fat, which was totally untrue. My father was a rather tall individual, and he certainly wasn’t anything remotely resembling corpulent. Henry B. Barrow was a dignified, hard-working individual who held the respect and regard of everyone who knew him. I mentioned that my father was rather tall. My mother was of medium height, and all of the Barrow children identified with one or the other. Jack, L.C., and Nell were rather tall, while Artie, Buck, Clyde, and myself were of more medium stature.
Some writings have said that my mother had children on an annual basis. If that were true, I would’ve had two dozen siblings, instead of only six. Jack was born in 1894, and I was born 24 years later. In fact, I’d like to point out that ours wasn’t really that big of a farming family by turn-of-the-century standards. Many farm families of the period had ten, twelve, or even fourteen children. If anything, the family of Henry and Cumie Barrow had less than the average number of farm children." --Marie Barrow
