Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935. His parents were Vernon and Gladys Presley. He grew up in a small, two room house in the town of Tupelo, Mississippi.
Elvis was born at home. His father and his uncle helped to deliver him. He was an only child. His twin brother, Jessie Garon, was still born. One has to wonder if Jessie had lived, if would have had the same talent as Elvis.
Although, Elvis’s family was not rich, they were all close. He grew up in the small town of Tupelo with his parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. They were all working class people. Work, family and church were the center of his family’s life, as was raising young Elvis.
