Tip Of The Hat: @MarcGinsberg for the pictures
The pictures I took were few, and most have been lost over the years. Here’s what I still do have.
In college I had a (bad) radio show on Sundays, and the guys before me had a comedy bit where they sold “Tickets To Heaven”. I wonder if they took it too far?
By all accounts I’ve heard, my great-grandfather (William Leslie Hamner) was a bit of a jerk. He and my great-grandmother (Grace Hamner) were divorced in 1932, and he paid no allimony to support her or my grandfather (Charles Hamner). Both ended up moving in with my grandfather’s older sister Lucille as a result, and my great-grandmother stayed with her until she passed in 1976.
My great-grandmother had sued my great-grandfather in 1939 because he was supposed to build a residence for her. This document details the compromise they reached, though my great-grandfather didn’t fulfill his end of this agreement either.
