M. ZIOCK CARROLL:
was born 30 March 1948 at Park Lane
Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. When my mother went into labor
in the middle of the night daddy went out to start the car to take
her to the hospital. However, the car (which was an old Terraplane)
would not start. So daddy hooked up the sidecar to his motorcycle,
put pillows and blankets in it, then carried my mother out, put her
in the side car & away they went! Since it was 1:00 a.m. there was
no traffic so daddy ran every red light there was to get us to the
hospital. Later, after my mother was admitted to the hospital, upon
examination by a nurse, it was determined that I had not turned
properly for birth & was going to come out feet first instead of
head first like most other babies do. I wanted to come out standing
on my own two feet but they wouldn't let me do it & I was born by
cicerian section between 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon - just in time for
lunch! When I came home from the hospital my great uncle, Theodore
Ziock, brought us home in his limousine.
When we lived in Shrewsbury I walked several blocks to
kindergarten every morning all by myself. When I was about five or
six we moved to Chesterfield, St. Louis County. There I went to
Chesterfield Elementry school. I went to Crestview Junior High
School at Glencoe. I was in the second graduating class to go
through all four grades at the new Lafayette High School, Ellisville
graduating in 1966. In June 1969 I married
CARROLL at Antioch Baptist Church. I lived behind the
church cemetery and Gene lived just down the road from the church.
After we were married Gene and I then moved into a house across the
street from Chesterfield Elementery school where we lived for five
years. Then we lived in Franklin County, Missouri for seven years
before moving to Washington County in 1981 where we still reside.
Jobs I have held in my lifetime: First job
was when I was still in high school - I worked for the Ellisville
Theatre. Other jobs were at Pet Milk Company in St. Louis,
Community Press Newspaper in Ellisville, Zayre Department Store in
Ballwin, Central Hardware in Ballwin, Sears Department Store at
Chesterfield Mall, Six Flags over Mid-America at Allenton, and
teaching Continuing Education classes in genealogy at
Mineral Area College at
Park Hills (formerly known as Flat River), Missouri.
