Harley Maddox lost his farm in Putnam County and moved his family to Charleston in 1932. Bob's Mom Maxine was 13. Maxine with Mom, Dad and 3 siblings moved to Red Oak Street on the west side. Harley and his brother formed a chicken business which operated through 1955 when Harley retired. They had a booth at the Patrick Street Farmers Market where customers picked out a live chicken and the brothers took it to the back to process on site. Harley said his best customers were "gypsies". Maxine's mother Lillie died in 1936. Harley married Lakie and they moved to Frame Street. Lakie is pictured here with Bob's brother David at a 1972 dinner. Harley shows off his family garden.
