    Notes 
    • When Alonzo was about 82 and Sara Jane was 79 yr. 9 months they drove down from Manitoba to see their Daughter, Lottie on the farm south of Chappell, NE. I think it was over 1,000 miles. The trip was in l934, I believe, when Alonzo and Sarah came down from Manitoba for a two- week vacation.

      Their son Sid and his wife, Kate along with their tiny daughter, Kathleen, also Charlie. So there were 5 adults and one very small child in the Whippet auto. There was no trunk. Where did they put clothes that they would need for the trip???

      Alonzo farmed with a Waterloo Boy (the name of a tractor for that time.)

      Grandpa Alonzo died about the time that the second world war broke out. I
      will have to look that up to be exact but it must have been l940 or there
      after a bit. Grandma Lottie was milking cows in the barn when the telegram came from Sid to say that her father had died --- and grandma was crying. (from cousin Irene from her Mother, Evelyne's, memories) - received from Donna Campbell
