STORIES

 

When living in at 1447 Hamilton Avenue, Wellston, Missouri, the family had a “party-line” telephone which connected several homes.   In a dispute about wanting to make a phone call, George became so incensed that he threatened to beat up the other person on the phone.  They agreed to meet at a particular street corner.  Considering his size and expertise as a “Golden Gloves” finalist, the other party never showed up.

 

Once when his family was visiting the family farm in Clover Bottom, Missouri, he imperiously ordered his daughter Peggy to prepare a meal and a snake fell from the ceiling onto the stove.
