Home in Colony: The Quipp family lived on the first land cleared by colonists after their arrival in Louisiana in 1917; it was located west of the Llano cemetery. In 1935 the crops looked good -- the berries had been gathered that morning, beans looked thrifty, tomato vines loaded down with large fruit, corn yielding roasting ears and sweet potato vines that promised a good harvest.
