Remember the picture I talked about yesterday? Well, there was a young boy in it that I thought looked a lot like Roy Hatke. I called Roy. He had remember being with his dad one day, going home and going past this field where there were a lot of tractors plowing. Daddy was one of the men and Uncle Art stopped to talk to dad. Roy said to call Jim Murtaugh. That Jim pretty much knew a lot of what went on. So, since I was going to go to mass at 4:30, I called and arranged to be at their house at 2;30.
Jim was in the picture. He knew several of the men and even why they were there. Jack Chatum (I'm not sure of the spelling) had three little girls. Two of them got polio. Jim also thought that they later died. So, the neighbors were helping him with his farming.
The big problem I have is that, if Roy was with his dad, this took place in about 1948. But, Henry Krick is in the picture, and he didn't move into the neighborhood until about 1954. So, I still have that mystry to solve.
Jim didn't know all the people. He thought some of the men were from the Buck Creek area. So, I still need to find someone who might know some of those men.
But I feel good about all the info I was able to get.
