The following excerpts were taken from the family book “Peaks of Otter Foothills—Keytown and Home” by Patsy Croft Key Claytor: As you can see, there were sixteen of us children—eight boys and eight girls. We had our own ball team. We had our ups and down. But the best part of all was growing up together and having a big family. Our father was a farmer and he had a sawmill. In his early life, he worked in a silk mill and hauled produce to the market that was raised on the farm. In later life, he raised beef cattle.
