510 Maple Street

While Vernon was serving time in Parchman for altering the amount of a check, Gladys & Elvis lived with her relatives in Mill Town at 510 Maple Street. ¬†While living here Elvis began to sleep walk and all the latches on the doors had to be moved up high so he wouldn’t walk out during the night.

Gladys worked to get Vernon’s sentence suspended by writing letters to the warden and having her old East Tupelo neighbors sign petitions and write letters as well.

Childhood friend, Guy Harris’ family were among the petition signers.
