The Boren family

20 Jul 2015


Mae Boren Axton's full birth name was Nannie Mae Boren which is exactly and precisely the same name as her mother.  She was the penultimate child of nine, and the only daughter.


In letters to her brother Lyle, Mae conifrmed that their family was not overly demonstrative as far as affection was concerned, but there was a strong bond between the siblings.


This photograph was probably taken about 1932 when Mae was aged 18. Her father, Mark, would feature prominently in her life, never moreso than when "Heartbreak Hotel" was racing up the charts in spring 1956.
