About Maggie McCorkle (Ishmael)

"Aunt Maggie" was devoutly religious and didn't mind sharing her faith. She took care of her blind sister, Omy, until her death.

She used to come and visit us on the farm after she moved to Sulphur Springs. Often she brought her black cocker spaniel. Once while we were looking at new calves in the cow lot, the dog got too close to a momma cow. The cow attacked the cocker and appeared to be stomping the heck out of him. However, the dog was not injured in the least. We figured that the cow only hit hair and loose skin.
