  • Notes 
    • Per Melanie McKinzie.
      Religion: Charter member of Polytechnic Baptist Church, now East Meadows Baptist Church, in Fort Worth, Texas.

      Dadaw was well-likdby everyone. He defined the word "sweet." In his railroad work he saw rough living, and my father talks about how he carried a gun, but Dadaw always spoke affectionately about everyone and everyting by the time I knew him. I even knew him before he was always in his chair, and he would take the great-grandkids for walks around the yard, and would show us all of the landmarks. He'd try topay us off for a kiss, but I never took it, not that it would have mattered tohim. He knew how scary older people can be to a small child.

      The story I remember the most was him speaking of when he was a baby and was left unattended, briefly, under a tree. When the family came back they found him peacefully surrounded by deer and other small forest creatures - like the Disney movies which came along 50-60 years later.

      Dadaw enjoyed his typewriter and we still have some of the pages he wrote. One item which was always exciting was a copy of the running orders for when he inspected the track for President Roosevelt'strain. The orders were supposed to have been destroyed afterwards, but Dadaw kept them and included this typed note:

      Ft. Worth, Texas, June 13th, 1936
      To any that may want to read the following,
      On this date June 13th, TrainmasterTroutt, and myself, made track inspection between Whitesboro and Ft. Worth, ina V-8 Ford car, head of presendent Roosevelt's special train whch left Ft. Worth at 12:30 PM.
