See Oral History Note 47:

And my brother John (Tommy) was still in highschool [when our mother died], and he was always sickly from birth, but managed to finish high school. He had polio, spent 2 yrs in US Army, and came back here, and worked in Delco-GM factory till he got so weak from lung cancer that he could no longer work. I think he was very young, too, when he passed. I don’t remember the exact year, but he passed in the hospital where I was working. Seems he passed in the evening. He was a kind soul, too good for his own sake. He had two *** wives, ***. He married the first, Audrey, in Missouri when he was stationed at Ft Leonard Wood. They had two children. She went back to Missouri, and he then married a woman in Russiaville, who had a son, already. They had [living children], all living in the area. I know there are twins, belonging to ***, and I think they will be 28 in November. They were infants when he passed, seems like in April.
