He was also a member of The Modern Woodman of America.


The author and paper are unknown. This was found on file in the Oak Grove Cemetery Records at the LeRoy public library.


In the survivors list, the paper likely made a mistake and listed Donald and Delmar as brothers. They were his sons. The confusion may be that their sister, Ruth, was listed just before.
