My maternal grandmother Marcella Padgett, nickname "Toothpick", was born to cotton sharecroppers in the Mt. Willing Community of Saluda County on the Samuel Banks farm behind Sardis Baptist Church. She was baptized at about age ten in the creek behind this old country church where her parents and sister, Sally Mae presently rest. When her parents moved their family to Newberry to work in the Mollohon Cotton Mill before 1920, this changed her entire family for the better and improved their quality of life forever. Her father worked the remainder of his life in the mill and died at home on Glenn Street.
