Hello - My Grandmother was a resident of the Martha Washington Dormitory in 1920. It was run by Carrie D. Schultz and had many girls boarding and working at the BlueBuckle Overall Factory "Jobbers Overall Co" located at 1300-1308 Campbell Ave in Lynchburg- Building is still. I would like to know any info about Mattie Boone born in 1901 and living there at the 1920 Census- shortly before she married Herbert Jenkins. I can't find out where she came from and how the young ladies got hired on here. Thank you.
