About The Group

Eva was the youngest of the three sisters that came from Decatur, Illinois. Lucille was next oldest and Evelyn was the oldest. From a newspaper article and clipping in someone's old scrapbook, we learn that the picture was taken when the girls were in their teens. Prior to joining WLS and appearing on the National Barn Dance, they had been heard also on WJBL, WDZ and WTAX.
