Lillian and Will's 1st home was a dugout on this timberclaim in Bellwood, Neb. Amy and Lydia were born there and two years later they built a frame house and moved into it. This is Amy's memory of the dugout.Three children were born to this union, Amy Arvilla, Lydia Luella and Glen Ray. William and Lillian worked hard and loved their family. The children felt this and enjoyed their childhood.
Here is a picture of that little house a few years later. There is Lillian (Bowlsby) Tannahill and the little boy is her grandson, Marvin Ray with the dog named Spot. Little Ray is Glen's son.
