The Great Decision
Gladys Orianna McCullough was born in Alicia, Arkansas on September 22, 1896. A middle child among five girls and two boys, she lived on a farm while her father kept a small store.
Shortly after her father's death in 1903, her mother moved all five sisters to Little Rock where they could attend better schools. Gladys lived in Little Rock for the rest of her life.
In 1923 she married George Ludovic Alexander and by him had twins, a boy and a girl in 1927. In the latter 1970's at the request of her children, Gladys wrote this memoir. She died in Little Rock, Arkansas on May 5, 1984.
