In addition to a small farm and the coal mines, Bill and Gladys started a small town convenience store out of their house (the old Lafe Winslow home which was once a part roller skating rink) in Benezette; had the only phone that the whole town used; ran the gas filling station; and had the first running water in town In the 40's they moved to New Castle PA and he worked as a electrician. Member of the Epworth Methodist Church. Lived in New Castle Pa for 18 years and was employed with the Johnson Bronze Co. serving as a member of the electrical maintenance crew retiring in 1957. To me as a grandson he was very quiet and although I lived around him until I was almost 13 I don't remember talking or playing with him.
