Oral history of Stella Ochociensky Medlin. "There was no money exchanged, in fact our parents [her mother and her husbands mother] never got paid with cash. I remember someone paying my mother with a slab of bacon and a sack of flour and food stuffs from the store, and they barely could afford to have it themselves to eat, but hey had to pay their way because my mother had to live too."
