    Misc
    • Edna, Geo and family went to the World's Fair, 1904, and stayed with George's brother Js. R (Bob) and family; then both families moved to Carmi, IL; letter from his daughter, Eva, in 1985, said that Geo's occupations included being a farmer in KY, a buyer of land in OK soon after statehood; he was a manufacturer of patented Japenese sweepers in several cities inc St. Louis; "Mom was a good saleslady."
      Geo. was also a guard at the McAlester prison for a while. He bought & sold houses and real estate. Then he went into the grocery business for years. He had a varied lot of jobs and moves, but got along well and were well fed. Edna was a teacher in early life. Geor also operated a livery stable at Louisvill, KY before kids were born; also mfgd & sold wallpaper brushes & brooms.
      Another story from Eva said that he had many tales of his searches for mfg locations & train trips to Liberal, KS. Once the plains were cold & very windy & so desolate that he had the trainment not unload his equipment & bought a return ticket back home to KY. Also had a similar experience (alone) to Winnipeg, Canada. It was so cold that he never left the depot (and stove) to even look for a possible location & returned hom. Eva said "Mom was always holding down the fort at home, awaiting Dad's return."
