Shattuck’s Great Great Grandmother Mary Kirk Adams (Granny) was a wonderful painter.  The below painting was in the Gunnison, MS Library when it burned.  This painting had a great deal of smoke damage.  It was brought out of Nan and Bapa’s attic a few years ago for an exhibit of Granny’s work in Corinth, MS and the works of her students.  Many of her students were present at the exhibit.
Below is a picture of Granny (far left) with her students.
William Shattuck Adams II sit below the painting to watch his favorite show Thomas The Tank Engine.
