    1. [S184] Ted Smith, 6 Apr 2004.
      On April 6, 2004, Pansy Clendenin wrote to Ted Smith that Harry's middle name was Ottoborn; he was born in 1908 in Gilman Indiana, a little town northwest of Muncie. Pansy wrote:
      "Harry O. died in Azalea, [Douglas Co.,] Oregon. He had emphysema. He worked for Guide Lamp [in Anderson, IN] till he went in the Navy in 1943, when he came out he didn't do much but still worked at Guide till the VA told him that he had to get out of that climate. He had a sister and brother in Burbank, California, so that is where we went."
