  • Note:
    1 _MDCL Had deafness problems all of her life. She had a hearing aid horn that looked like a musical instrument. Another person would talk into it while she held it to her ear.

    Fanny Clark was the last daughter that we know that Elizabeth Campbell,Benge, Bridges, James, Clark had. Fanny is the one that figured out thatGranny, Nancy Ann James, had married her half-nephew and her hishalf-aunt. Before that, Dad says that he guesses that Fanny thoughtthat Jessee were like third cousins or something like that. Anyway, withher deafness problems nearly all of her life[Note: she had very badhearing problems], she was still smart in her ways. Dad has a letter ofGrannies to a cousin that she says: "I'm deefer now than what I wasthen." Fanny had a hearing aid horn that looked like a musicalinstrument that you would talk into while she held it to her best ear.Grandpa Roscoe showed her that by using a yard stick and holding it tothe wood near the speaker of the radio and then the other end behind hergood ear, that she could enjoy music. My cousin, Larry O'Dell who wasalso deaf, per Dad, says that, with the use of a yardstick that my Dadshowed him how that up to a transistor radio that us kids and my mom,Wanda, gave to Dad for Father's Day one time, that Larry didn't want togive the radio back to Dad when they were ready to go home.

    In a letter dated Nov. 27, 1979 from Maybelle Gropp & Dinah to my Dad, aparagraph I will put here states:
    "Have probably repeated some information you have on hand. Lacking truedata one can sometime be mislead by heresay. Much information Maybellehad access to is in that category - no doubt our James family hasmysteries and skelton in the closet. We will mention this known fact toyou that Maybelle and Roscoe were aware of - Nancy Ann James and JesseeB. James had a half-aunt-half-nephew relationship. They left Missouri ina covered wagon and were married in W. Kansas. Granny (Nancy Ann) Jamesguarded this information concerning their kinship for years. Herhalf-sister, Fanny Clark Wilson (last born daughter of ElizabethCampbell, Benge, Bridges, James, Clark), came to visit and spitefullytattled that "Nanny had married her own half nephew." If Granny seemedmysterious and reluctant to discuss family history, this was the reason.Now both grandparents (yours and mine Robert) are gone. It was hardtimes in those early days - the country was new and there was a warpassed now; which left people free to travel and land to prove on for anew beginning. I'll refer again to the geneology in . Maybellehas the names and dates correctly given. God Bless all our ancestors -the saints and sinners - the outlaws and horse theives or whatever theywere. We're a part of them and I love them all."
