Caldwell Family

It was at a Caldwell family reunion that I began this project, in October 2004. My grandmother was Ruby Caldwell, an aunt or great aunt to most of the people in the room. There are a lot of stories about the Caldwells, including pirates, religious dissenters, founders of areas in Ireland and Scotland and so forth. In a later edition of the web site, I'll gather those stories and publish them.

This page goes all the way down to the youngest known children, but does not contain birth dates for those still living.

http://sdss4.physics.lsa.umich.edu:8080/~mckay/amckay/presbioc.htm That website contains information about
other Caldwells in the Maryland-Pennsylvania-New Jersey area who were ministers of the Presbyterian Church.
From a book on Irish castles, someone has posted this description on the internet: Castle Cadlwell, Fermanagh.
Originally known as the Castle Hasset, ruined CastleCaldwell is a plantation structure built between 1610 and
1619 by Francis Blennerhasset as one of a series of strongholds guarding the Lough Erne road. In 1662, the
Blennerhasset family sold the castle to James Caldwell, who renamed it and whose descendants lived there for
over 200 years. The remains include two of the hawn's flankers, a boathouse and a quay, and a ruined Protestant
church. The latter was bulit by Francie Blennerhasset in 1641, and during later use as a family chapel, acquired
some interesting monuments. The English traveller Arthur Young enjoyed the hospitality of James Caldwell in
1776. Beside the road is the Fiddler's Stone, a monument raised to a drunken fiddler who fell from a boat and
drowned while travelling with Sir James' band in 1770. The whole of this area at the northwest corner of Lough
Erne is classed as a region of outstanding natural baeuty. As well as being a forest park, it is also a reserve under
the control of a RSPB warden who watches over the thriving local wildlife.
Virginia Magazine of History and Biography, Vol. 19, pp 92-94 Our [John Roger and Elias B. Caldwell--cousins]
grandfather emigrated from Scotland to Ireland soon after King William's conquest of that place [ie. Scotland--
King William III of England; 1650-1702]. Our grandfather, John Caldwell, was born in Ireland and was there
married to a Margaret Phillips (our grandmother). He remained there until they had five children, at which time
he got three of his brothers-in-law, who had married his sisters, to come to America with him (to wit) Moor,
Ritchey, and Dudgeon. Wll:[?] of whom I well remember and one brother-in-law who married his wife's sister
whose name was Dougherty, grandfather of my wife and Thomas Dougherty formerly clerk to the lowest house of
Congress. They set sail together and landed in Delaware the very day that King George II was proclaimed there
[King George II of England; 1683-1760]. From thence they got up the country to a place in Pa., then, called
Chestnut Level. Our grandfather naturally of an enterprising spirit, explored the country southwesterly from a
place in Va. to Albemarle Co. to which he moved and was soon followed by all his kindred.
There he lived some years; there our grandfather died and his oldest son and my mother-his only daughter-were
married.
They and their companions moved with him to Roanoke River and the fine lands there explored the country
westerly until his followers fixed on a fine level waterly spot not 30 miles outside any inhabitants, to which place
him and his sons and brothers-in-law moved about the year 1742-43.
They were soon after joined by other friends mostly from Ireland or Pa. until they formed a little settlement which
was known and always called Caldwell Settlement. For thirty years after father was the first Justice of the Peace
and his oldest son the oldest militia officer that was ever appointed under King George II within 25 miles of that
place in that neighborhood. I was born and in it was married and had six children before I moved to Ky in the
year 1781.
Our grandfathers children were William, Thomas, David, all are buried in the same graveyard with their father.
David's widow and all the family moved to Ky. Uncle John went to So. Carolina and died there. Uncle William's
widow and all that family went also to So. Carolina. Our friend John C. Calhoun is a son of the 2nd daughter of
that family."

1810 March 1, ROBERT CALDWELL and SARAH RHODES were md. at the house of Jacob Bishop in Knox
County, TN, by Beriah Frazier, a Justice of the Peace. --Affidavit of Eunice RHODES, age 80, of Bull Run P.O.,

Infantry Volunteers. ROBERT, age 25, was described as 5' 10" with fair complexion, black hair, and gray eyes.
ROBERT stated under oath, Dec. 1, 1851, "that he sold his discharge shortly after he left the servis of the United

We were told when we began this history in the 1970s that ROBERT acquired 360 acres in Greene County, MO,
in 1829, but ROBERT and his family were still in Knox County, TN, in 1830. Available evidence suggests that
ROBERT did not come to Missouri until the late 1830s, and he did not own land until the 1860s when he was
taxed in 1865 for 200 acres in Webster County (Section 16, Twp. 30N, Range 19W). The exact date that he
acquired this land is not yet known.

ROBERT CALDWELL also listed in Book 2 (1842-1847), p.26; Book 4 (1851-1853), p.86. Index to Greene
County Stray Records 1833-1913. These are records of stray livestock. During the 19th and early 20th centuries,
Missouri statutes provided specific guidelines for individuals finding and harboring lost cattle, horses, mules and
other livestock. Before a person could take possession of the stray, he was required to post a notice of intent for at
least thirty days and pay a bond to ensure that the animal would not be disposed of in that time. After notices had
been posted in public places for thirty days, the finder was required to file a notice with a justice of the peace,
who determined if the proper procedure was followed and collected a bond equal to the appraised value of the
animal. After one year, if the animal remained unclaimed, half of the bond was returned to the finder. The justice
of the peace submitted lists which were provided to the county clerk, who posted the information in the stray
books. http://198.209.8.166/sheproom/Records/strtoc.htm

John Caldwell, next to Pleasant Shaw, next to John Caldwell, next to John Moses, next to Joseph Goodwin, next
to William Brock, next to Mark Goodwin Jr (husband of Absalom's daughter Lydia), next to Absalom Caldwell,
next to James Caldwell, next to Hugh Caldwell. In 1860, none of those families are together except Mark
Goodwin, but Absalom is supposed to be still living.
In the 1860 census, Melissa Caldwell is living in the home. She is 50. She is not a child of Absalom's, so I'm not
sure who she is. Isaac and Valentine may be Alexander's child, as may the others. The household is Absalom,
Hannah, Alexander, Melissa (may be Alexander's second wife), Hulda, Isaac, Valentine, Ann, Margaret. Jane,
Mary, Lovace? , Fanny

Found on cemetery list at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~timmons/newhome.html and
ftp://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ok/cherokee/cemeteries/nwhomefull.txt
Joseph H. Caldwell, 1853-1918, which is at variance from his date of birth in other places.
He was found by some to be peculiar. If there was a singing school, we had to be there. He liked to hunt and
fish, but sometimes would pout for a week without Grandma knowing why. Told by Martha Jane Caldwell
Payne, his daughter, to Weldon.
From handwrtten notes provided by Weldon to Linda Smith Williams (quoting Jenny Payne): Aunt Jennie
remembers being with him the day he died at home, near Locust Grove, Oklahoma. He had "leakage of the
heart." On the morning of July 20, while she and Grandma Caldwell were with him, two neighbor men stopped.
One saw that J.H. couldn't last long and stayed with him. At 11:00 a.m., Joseph Harley looked at the clock and
said " I have about one hour left." Mama says that he died at exactly 12 noon.

Notes for MARY JANE ISRAEL:
She told Aunt Jennie that when she was a small girl, she used to go down to the cemetery where she is buried and
read her Bible during school recess. That story comes from Martha Jane Caldwell Payne, who was her daughter.
Jenny Payne believed that she was born 9/11/1856 in Jefferson County and died March 11, 1931.
33
Her wedding license was issues September 16, 1874. The performing person is listed as Whifield Anthony.
After her husband died in Oklahoma, she returned to Alabama on the train. She was not feeling very well and the
preacher broughter her back. This was probably senile dementia. She went to live with her daughter Hattie.

Notes for THOMAS GREEN:
According to Jenny Payne, he was a coal miner whose brother was killed in an explosion just
before Tom went on shift. This was a persuading factor in Grandma Caldwell agreeing to move to
Oklahoma, so her boys wouldn't have to work in the mines. Married (along with Zepha and Lee
Cooley) in Caldwell's front yard on Sunday before finally moving to Oklahoma.
No children

74. BENJAMIN ALEXANDER12 CALDWELL (JOSEPH HARLEY11, ALEXANDER10, ABSALOM9, ALEXANDER8, JOHN7,
JOHN6, JOSEPH5, JOHN4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1)65 was born 26 Jan 1878 in Jefferson County, Alabama, and
died 25 Jan 1953 in Jefferson County, Alabama. He married JULIA IDA WHEELER 1900 in Jefferson County,
Alabama, daughter of ANDREW WHEELER and MARY JONES. She was born 24 Jun 1878 in Jackson County,
Alabama, and died 03 Aug 1959 in West End Hospital, Birmingham, Jefferson, Alabama66.
Notes for BENJAMIN ALEXANDER CALDWELL:
Jenny Payne says he was buried on his 75th birthday.
He married Julia Ida Wheeler before the Caldwells moved to Oklahoma. Ben and Julie rented a house near the
family, who were living in the "McNair Place," a big two-story house (with pecan groves) owned by an Indian
family named McNair. (Jenny Payne, as related to Weldon ).
In the 1900 census, Benjamin and Juie live alone (without kids), between the Goolsbys and the Spencers. A short
distance away there are Rufus Nicholson, his wife, Rufus Linus Nicholson, and Walter Hugh Nicholson and his
family. This is not the house where they lived when their grandchildren were growing up. This house was on
Pleasant Grove Road, about 3 miles away toward Edgewater. Eventually, after they moved from the house, Ben's
39
brother Jim and his wife Carrie moved there. The Paynes moved into the house across the road when they came
back from Texas and Oklahoma.
In the 1910 census, the following families live all in a row:
Andrew and Mary Angeline Wheeler
Richard J. and Jennie Wheeler
Kate Wheeler Glasgow and Bascom Glasgow
Frank C. and Retha Anthony Wheeler
Joseph A. and Bessie Wheeler
He should have been back in Alabama for the 1920 census, but I can't find a record of it. He had a child born in
Alabama in 1915, so he should have been in Alabama rather than Oklahoma in 1920.
The 1930 census has Ben and Julia with son Jim and daughter Alice in Jefferson County, Alabama. Richard
Jones Wheeler is listed just before Ben and Julia. Joseph Andrew Wheeler lives nearby on that same side.
Walter Goolsby lives on the other side, then James Goolsby, then John and Nora Anthony. Ben owns his home,
which is worth $6,000. He is a carpenter for a coal and iron company. He is not a veteran. These census pages
do not list the name of the road or the house numbers.
Death certificate: Jefferson County, Alabama, Jan 25, 1953, Volume 3, Certificate 1117, Roll 5.

Notes for JULIA IDA WHEELER:
She said that when they were in Oklahoma, the wind blew so strong that it blew the plants away as fast as they
could plant crops. She said people went crazy from the wind and its damage.
Her grand-daughter says: She did what all the pioneer women did. She sewed, kept house, kept a garden, and
cooked. Her grand-daughter says that she had such an imagination about cooking. She knew how to take
whatever was in the house and make a meal. If it was almost grocery day and stores were low, she could still
figure out a good meal. When everyone was starving and she needed a quick meal, she would fry fatback, then
cook sauerkraut in that same pan. She'd cook a pan of cornbread while it was cooking, then put that out for lunch
with buttermilk and home-made jelly. (Her grand-daughter Julia Minerva was good at that too.) She sang
"Bringing In The Sheaves" while she mopped the kitchen floor.
Her great-granddaughter says: I remember her Folgers Coffee can. It sat next to her chair. I guess she dipped
snuff and spat into the can. As a child this fascinated me! I remember her as a kind woman who appeared in my
life every once in a while and then disappeared. I am gateful to my mother for taking the time to write about her
so we would all know something about her.

Notes for IDA LOIS CALDWELL:
Lois went to college and worked various jobs in the Baptist church. In 1946, she was a secretary at
Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Florida, after her husband Sam died. Her niece says she
mostly "did what Baptist preachers' wives did." She did not have children.
She married her husbands in this order. Each died. All were Southern Baptist ministers.
Samuel Heath
Robert Wright
Thomas Swearington
In about 1940, her family visited her in Clearwater for two weeks: Alyce and her kids, Elizabeth and
her kids and Granny and Popa and Linda Smith. They traveled in Popa's car and Elizabeth's car.
(Alyce did not drive.) There is a picture of all the kids on a dock on Lake Tarpon, which was called
Lake Butler then. They stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, which had a kitchen. There was a beach
along the lake, sandy and nice. If there were the alligators that inhabited Lake Tarpon later, they
did not know about it. To go to the beach, they had to go to Alternate 19, then across the
causeway to the beach. The causeway was originally built by WPA workers in the 1930s and was
a construction marvel. They picked oranges in an orange grove, then went to Tarpon Springs and
went out on the sponge boat. Her niece Linda remembers the diver putting on his gear to dive for
sponges. The kids would get up in the morning and put on their bathing suits and stay in them all
day long. Every afternoon they went to the beach. One afternoon they visited Calvary Baptist
Church, where she worked and saw the dome, which is beautiful. They visited her at the Gray
Moss Inn in downtown Clearwater, where she lived. She had an apartment on the second floor
that opened onto a veranda. (That has been torn down in the late 1990s and is now a parking lot
for the Scientologists' conference center.)
Earlier in the summer, Linda went home with Alyce from a visit to Birmingham. Alyce returned to
Lanette on the train and Linda went to help her keep her children in order. Since Linda was in
Lanette, she was included in the trip to Clearwater, then returned home to Birmingham with her
grandparents.

Notes for HAROLD WAYNE CALDWELL:
In an email dated May 16, 2005, Ben Caldwell says:
The subject came up about Harold Wain Caldwell wanting to fly. I found a log book for him
amoung my dad's log books. It showed him as an AMM2c which is an Aviation Machinist Mate
second class. That is an aircraft mechanic. The log book shows him flying as a crew member.
The first entry is January 9, 1927, but at least one previous page is missing, so I don't know exactly
when he started. The last entry is for August 9, 1928. He was stationed aboard the USS
Marblehead (CL-12), a light cruiser. During the time he was aboard her, she saw service in
Nicaragua, Pearl Harbor, and Shanghai, China.
In the log book is a document from the naval air station at Pensacola, Florida, dated September 10,
1928 designating him a student pilot. I have attached a copy of that document. (This document will
be on the grannyandpopacaldwell.com website.) He must have been transferred from the USS
Marblehead to Pensacola to start flight school. He died March 10, 1930. There are no entries in
his log book for the last 19 months of his life. I can only assume that he had another log book and
was a student pilot at Pensacola during that time. That is plenty of time for him to have finished
flight school and become a full fledged pilot.
The story I heard about his death was that he was in a boat that capsized. He swam to shore, but
went back to try to save one of his buddies and they both drowned.

Notes for MAGNOLIA E. CALDWELL:
She had twins, but they could not find food to agree with them, and they died. That would be Lawrence and
Florence.
Jenny Payne told Weldon that she married Wade Hedgecock before the Caldwells moved to Oklahoma. Wade
mined and lived at Hueytown and later Carbon Hill. They finally moved to Oklahoma. Wade died in Dallas of
tuberculosis, but had been in a mental hospital.

She was buried on her wedding anniversary, having outlived her husband by 36 years.
Her daughter says: She quit school in 7th grade and stayed home to help her mother. Later in life she was a
cook, caretaker and so forth. During World War II she took a home nursing course. When any of the people in
the neighborhood had a baby, she would help the doctor. When anyone was sick, they would come get her to sit
with the sick person and take care of them When her grand-daughter Linda Rae was 3, she had dysentery while
she was away visiting with Ruby. Ruby sat in the hospital with her, crocheted and fed her 7-up and jello. She
grew flowers, both plain and unusual. People would come by and see her flowers and she would pick a bouquet
for them. She made many, many, rag dolls, long and skinny, all sewn by hand. They could go in the washing
machine and dryer and come out and be loved some more. She made completely hand-sewn quilts, then made
potholders from the scraps. Everyone in the family used her potholders. Everyone thinks of her when they see a
pansy. She always said the kids could pick all the pansies they wanted. Pansies were fair game.
Her grand-daughter says: Granny Rube taught me to crochet, sew by hand and pick flowers properly. In my
garden now I have all sorts of flowers that remind me of her: pansies, peonies, columbines, and coral bells. My
most vivid memory of her is watching her kill a diamond back rattler with a hoe when she was about 58 years old.
My most vivid memory of her house in Lynn Haven, Florida, was some asparagus my mother picked and cooked
for me there one spring. It was the best asparagus I ever ate. I loved her quilts and I always sewed, but I thought
I could NEVER make a quilt like she could. One day, when I was in my late thirties, I saw a quilt made of old
blue jeans and tied with red yarn. It was so ugly. I knew I could do better than that, so I started making quilts and
enjoying every minute of it. I am proud to say that I have a copy of her rag doll pattern.
Her son says that she did not sell flowers until later in life. She always said, "Flowers shoudl be given away" and
gave away a fortune in them. She also made those rag dolls complete in every detail with panties,
petticoats,socks. His wife has one with small glasses made of small copper wire and once tried to get her to make
one using some of his sister's red hair. Granny Rube made one of cotton yarn that looked like her daughter's hair
instead. if you have one of hers notice the small stitches, handmade like they were machine made. EVERY baby
as far back as I can remember, got a stuffed crochet multi color ball (and I think Nell still has one of our kids ball)
Nell still treats some of those rag dolls like they were gold.

Notes for EMMETT NICHOLSON SMITH:
Florida Death Index 1877-1998 Name: Emmet M. Smith Place: Columbia Gender: M Race: W Volume: 1393
Certificate: 2497 Death Date: 1950 (He was at the Veterans Hospital in Lake City when he died.)
Their son, Jack Smith, was born in a house on the property of Andrew Lindsay Wheeler. It was a 2-story house
back behind the main house.
During the 1930 census, the family was living in Mount Clemons Michigan, near Detroit. He was working there
reupholstering and repairing Victorian furntiure and returned to Alabama just before the birth of his daughter,
Linda. On April 24, 1930, he lived in Clinton Township, Mount Clemons, at 25 Church Street, with Ruby, Guy
and Jack. There were two boarders in the house, whose names appear to be Verna Leonardson(born in Michigan)
and Charles Simmons (born in Illinois). The family is paying $30 a month for rent. Emmett says his father was
born in Georgia and Ruby says her mother was born in Missouri according to the census takers, both things that
we believe are not true. The lodgers are a waitress at a hotel and a laborer doing odd jobs. Emmett lists himself
as a a carpenter in a cabinet shop.
51
His daughter says: He always planted a few crops because farming was in his blood. They had 39 acres in
Alabama, but a lot of it was woods (long-term leases from Tennessee Coal and Iron company). He would have
corn, sweet potatoes and soy beans, in a time when people were not growing soy beans. He fed them to the
animals, but said that people would be eating them before long. He had a kitchen garden too. He worked in a
defense plant in Alabama, during World War II. His daughter does not know what he did because they didn't talk
about what they did at the plant. She thinks he made powder for explosives. His son thinks he was working on
setting the plant up rather than working in the plant. He learned how to cut hair in the Army, so on Sunday
afternoons their front porch was a barber shop. Everyone who was working 6 days a week in the defense plants
during the war would get their hair cut because that was their only day off. When it became popular for women to
bob their hair, he cut his wife's hair. The relationship with her father was cooler after that, and he may have never
forgiven Emmett for cutting Ruby's hair.
His son says: My dad worked in the Edgewater coal mine as a brick mason building block and brick walls for air
and ventilation control and motor shops in the mine for part of the war years. He worked as a saw filer,
sharpening saws while building a powder plant for DUPONT co. in Sylacaga, Al. Tthey produced powder for
dynamite and all kinds of explosives ( I think the full name was I. E. Dupont and De mours co. I may not have
it spelled right ). Both before and after the war he worked as a contractor building houses.
He says his dad was a man of sometimes strong opinions and did not care what other people thought, a trait which
arguably carried down in the famly. At church one time the discussion came up among a small group about why
some person did not come to church. Someone in the group mentioned that this person just did not have a suit to
wear and felt out of place .My dad very quickly answered "who is going to church, the person or the clothes ? If
the clothes are going you can just put them in a paper sack and send them." After more discussion about being
too poor to own a suit my dad suggested that the group start wearing KHAKI pants and any kind of clean shirt
and forget the tie. The next Sunday he showed up in khaki pants. He was the only one but he continued to do
that. He did not believe that clothes make the man. I am afraid that I have to agree. He worked at the powder
plant as a carpenter-- saw filer while building the plant. he never worked in the plant after it went into production
His son also says his dad had 2 separate 40 acre, adjoining leases with 40 acres in cultivation, the rest was in
woods and pasture. He believed in a good garden He liked to go to church and tell people "I have plenty of
garden vegetables, Come on over and help yourself " then when we got home he would tell me to go pick some
and bring it to the house so they won't be tromping around in the garden (some of them didn't know how to pick
and would destroy more than they picked). From the 6th grade on I got out of school at 1:00 and came hom,
,hooked up the mule(s) and plowed until he came home to take over the plowing and I would go in and fix the
mules feed sometimes milk the cow and then do my homework (what part of it I ever done) I think the main
reason for some of the farming was to keep me out of trouble - - - It worked. I came in one day and told him I
wanted to go to a specific ball game.He wasn't in the best mood that day He said " I've got your d- - - ball game
there is a team of mules and 40 acres and if that runs out I will lease some more" well that fall we bought a used
tractor and I learned to drive it pretty good, The 40 acres ran out, I had plowed it over and over..My dad always
tried to do what he said he would do so he leased 5 acres - - -5 miles from home I plowed that and planted it in
soybeans, I cut and raked it and he gave it away because it had NUT grass in it and he,didn't want to
contaminate our place with it. But I never got into trouble I didn't have time. Of all the farming we done , I sold
1 half wagon load of watermelons..Of the rest, we had what we used and gave away more than we used I can't
remember ever selling anything more. ---He first leased the front 40 acres that he had helped uncle Hugh
Nicholson clear the trees off of it I can remember some of the trees were oaks over 2 feet in diameter. the first
lease was before my sister Linda was born The second lease was an adjoining 40 acres that uncle Dick Wheeler
*(Granny Caldwell's brother ) had leased for years and he gave up the lease. since we had the front 40 the
company ( T. C I ) let us have it.There was some mine cracks--big cracks in the ground varying in size some4--6
ft. wide and 40--50 ft long open 4 to 8 ft deep ( WE had a mule fall into one once and we had to dig her out ) We
filled them and watched them and farmed right over them. Occasionally one would open up and we would have
to fill it again some of the cracks are there now in among the houses that have been built in my field.

Notes for BENJAMIN FRANKLIN CALDWELL:
When he was 17, he ren away and joined the Navy with a friend of his. He and Harry both joined, but they did
not go together. He trained at Pensacola, Florida. He was a navigator and pilot. After World War II, some
smart aleck young medic did his annual physical and decided he had asthma, so he had to go on a desk job. He
finished his Navy career in Pensacola. He retired as a Commander, without a high school diploma. According to
his son, he was up for Captain, but had little chance of making it given his lack of education. He was an Ensign at
the beginning of World War II. He was promoted during the war. At the end of the war, Congress voted to allow
some of them to keep their rank and he was allowed to. He finished his Navy career in Pensacola. He retired as
a Commander, without a high school diploma. According to his son, he was up for Captain, but had little chance
of making it given his lack of education.
In the 1930 census, he is living at the U.S. Naval Air Station in Warrington (Pensacola), Florida. The writing is
not too clear, but it looks like he is living in Barracks Building 231.

93. VIRGINIA ALICE13 CALDWELL (BENJAMIN ALEXANDER12, JOSEPH HARLEY11, ALEXANDER10, ABSALOM9,
ALEXANDER8, JOHN7, JOHN6, JOSEPH5, JOHN4, JOHN3, WILLIAM2, WILLIAM1) was born 14 Aug 1915 in Birmingham,
Alabama, and died 2004. She married JOHN RUSSELL MCKENZIE Private. He was born Private.
Notes for VIRGINIA ALICE CALDWELL:
In the Pleasant Grove Cemetery, there was a stone in the Caldwell lot. Cars kept missing the curve and hitting the
stone. So, Alice bought a really big stone so that cars could not damage it. It seems to be working.
Alice always had a beautiful garden. When her children were grown up, she went to work at Auburn University.
She first took classes to learn to be a secretary. Eventually, when David was in college, she worked as an
administrative assistant to the Dean of the school of agriculture. She continued in that job until she retired. She
used to take rocks to the elementary school and talk to the children about the different rocks in her collection.
She sewed and made all of her children's clothes while they were growing up. I am sure they saw this as a mixed
blessing.
Her son Craig is a geologist. He sent her rocks from everywhere he went, to add to her rock collection.
Alyce and Russell lived in Lanette, Alabama, until their children started going to college. Then they moved to
Auburn because it was cheaper to move there than it was to have their children living at the college.
