I received copies of obituaries from Girard Kansas in today’s mail. We were hoping for information about James’ father to take the line back. Nothing in the obits. There is lots of good information about his religious background (Baptist) and reputation (a staunch temperance guy). What is not said does speak volumes. No mention of his first wife. There is a mention of his being survived by six children, which would be the 4 from Lydia and 2 (one natural and one step) from Emma.
