    • The family moved into a shotgun house on south Delauney street in 1937. Lottie lived in the house almost 50 years. In 1988, it was moved about a block away to the new Biloxi town green off U.S. 90 near Lameuse Street and used as an administrative building for the City. It was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

      "I also remember ocassionally going to Aunt Lottie's home to visit, also remember everyday at exactly 2 o'clock she & Aunt Carrie would go to my great grandmother's house for coffee - I thought it was kind of cute that they would bring 1 small bottle of coca cola & split between the 2 of them before drinking coffee. Your grandmother was always impeccably dressed." -- Memory of Deborah Pitalo Snyder (great-granddaughter of Lenora "Nora" Duggan Scarbrough), in email to HJG 3/15/2011.
