When I met with Bill in 2008, he was spry and told stories about his family, John Dillinger, etc. He tells of the time he took his dad to visit the Dillinger Museum. His dad was dissapointed and said 'It just goes to show how much the media can get things wrong.' He also said 'Grandpa Taylor did make moonshine - some of the best in the County.'(Al Hart Jr.)

Manuel and Rose divorced and Manuel remarried two more times. Lewis and His wife Stephanie live in Seymour and have two grown daughters and six grandchildren.

I live in Seymour with my cat 'Gracie'. An 'Old Maid' as Aunt Rosie Rush once called me. I work at Holiday Inn Express and conduct a personal speaking ministry called A Lily of His Field.

Thanks again for your hard work getting our family tree information out for those of us who don't have the patience to be geneologists!

Best Wishes,
