Thanks for your response.
Are they funny?
Very much so, they have a great sense of humor, love to pick on each other and once they get to know you....then you are "fair game" for their teasing.
Gregarious? They are the oldest living descendants from their particular Miles Line. They are almost always surrounded by nieces, nephews, cousins and family friends. I make the trip to Greencastle about 3 times a year and talk to them on the phone at least twice a month. Such a joy to be around.
Frances...her story is something else. Graduated from Indiana State, in Terre Haute, IN 1932. Went south to teach school (Greenville, SC), worked in the Pentagon during WWII, was an early employee (AA) for IBM in the late 50's, still active in the church and the NAACP.
Jimmy...you would love him, in addition to his photography hobby he is a Jazz enthusist. His stories about living in Chicago and the Jazz circuit after WWII are amazing. A collection of records (lp's), cassettes of live performances and
Frances' words upon meeting me again after so many years. "You were such a cute litle boy, what happened?"
Didn't mean to go on so much, but they are they only family connection I have that knew my father.
Thanks for asking,
