  • Notes 
    • Source: Gib Ramage's letter - "You asked for family history": Aunt Sadie had no children of her own, but raised a stepson, (Harold Fletcher) for her husband whose name was Fletcher, I don't know his first name [Emerson FLETCHER- msr]. The only name I ever heard was Bumbledeesox. Don't ask me where that came from, but I do remember he drove a Model T Ford Coupe. They were down for a Sunday dinner in 1926 when the house on it's farm was being built and Bumbledeesox didn't see too well - he was a big fat guy I think - there was a car in the drive, so he sashayed out around it and ran over a pile of down spout tubing Dad had laid out. Dad wanted to kill him then, and, by the time he got through salvaging the tubing, wished he had."
