Description: I was born in Fruitland, New Mexico, November 26, 1924. My parents were Elmer Foutz and Ethel Brimhall [phonetic spelling] Foutz. They were the original settlers in Tuba City, and when the government bought 'em out so they could give that part of the country to the Navajos and Hopis, why, they moved to Fruitland. My grandfather Foutz and Grandmother Foutz settled in Kirtland. And the Brimhalls, they moved from Salt River Canyon and Snowflake and down in that area, and they settled in Fruitland. So my father was raised in Kirtland, and my mother was raised in Fruitland.
