REFLECTION OF LIFE
I was born November 29, 1941 in Muskogee, OK to my mother, Corinne McCain, who was married to my father, George Adams. I grew up and went to school in Muskogee and my mother had other children, George Adams, Shirley Adams, and Carl Adams. Carl was the oldest. I was the baby girl. Then my mother later married and had another child, my sister, Annette Lewis, and later had two more children for Johnny Young; my sister and brother, Antoinette Young and Anthony Young. There were three brothers and three sisters in my family. “ – Mom D. Phillips.
