    10. [S1878] Correspondence.
      . . . I wish I had some more information to give you concerning Grandpa Childress but I'm just blank. I searched Mom's Bible again looking for a clue but came up with nothing. I can barly remember him and I'm sure we wre living in Illinois when he passed away. As I remember it Mom & Dad were living in Towouda, Illinois and the big city near by would be Bloomington, Illinois

      My mother passed away August 18, 1965. The National Cemetery is right in Knoxville. You will have no trouble whatsoever in finding it. It might be a bit complicated locating Mom & Dad's grave since they all look alike. Mildred & her husband live at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. They would be the one who could take you too (sic) it.

      . . . John & I are both retired. I'm 70 & he's 71. . . Our only daughter & her husband lives in Napoleon, the same town my sister Pauline and Brother Bill live in. Her twin brother is in Texas he's into construction & moves around a lot. David, his wife and two chilren live here in Craigmont and Jim lives in Lewiston about 40 miles from me -- He's single--not found the right one I guess. He's our youngest and 32. After being out of school for 13 years he decided it was time to completehis education, so he went back to college last year. He is starting his second year last week and he's into electronics.
