PHON: 864 224 4746
Birth: 3 SEP 1920 in Seneca, South Carolina
Note: Teacher of the year 1963
Note: Was raised by Larkin II and Anna
Note: Laura who now lives in Anderson, SC has been very helpful. When
Note: I was in South Carolina in July of 1995. She told me where the
Note: cemetery was located where most of the Gassaway family is
Note: buried. Of course we spent a few hours there. It must have
Note: been the hottest day of year, about 99 degrees, red dirt (which
Note: I had heard about but had never seen) and very, very few trees.
Note: She gave me the telephone numbers of two cousins Middleton,
Note: Jr. and Raymond Gassaway who live in Charllote, North
Note: Carolina. She also gave me the telephone numbers of her son,
Note: Ansel and Barbara, her sister.
Note: She told me that the house in front of the Larkin II homestead
Note: was the house that belonged to my grandfather Vester Gassaway
Note: before he moved to Detroit in 1922.
Note: Alvin and I decided to go back and take pictures of the house.
Note: The people who now live in the house are direct decendants of
Note: the people who bought the house from my grandfather. Their sir
Note: name is Terry. The Terrys are very friendly. We did not go
Note: inside the house, but can you imagine how I felt standing on
Note: the porch of the house that was built for my grandfather almost
Note: 90 years ago? My grandfather died 1 1/2 years before I was
Note: born and 6 months after my brother, Arthur was born. I didn't
Note: know this house existed. We have to talk to our children and
Note: grandchildren so that they will be able to pass our family
Note: history from one generation to the next.
