Rosemary Mfg. Co. Uriah and Eva Westbrook. Both violations. Uriah is 12 years old now (Bible record said born May 24, 1903) and he has been working there 2 months. Eva began at 12 years; been working there 1 year. Born May 4, 1901. The real need for the work of the children is not apparent, although the father is sick, for there are 6 children in the mill. The mother said: We kin go back to the farm any time, and I wisht we would. It's a heap easier living there than in the mill. Some of the children agreed with her. Location: Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
