William and Adrienne

I just called William, all the way back in Missouri, a few minutes ago to tell him about this blog and that I was getting ready to upload some pix of him and Adrienne. I called him because he is not a facebooker like so many of the family. Now he knows, and here they are.

I am sure there are more pictures of Kelli somewhere that I have not found yet. Anyone with pictures please tell me so I can scan them, or you can fax them to me.

In fact anyone with pictures, or stories connected to Judy – Jodie, Kelli, or the kids, please contact me.

Chastain, Hottle, and Garrett

Bill Garrett, in this newspaper clip, and the ad below it, was married to Adela Dorothy Garrett. She was called “Dot”. Her maiden name was Chastain. Henry Chastain was her brother.

Bill and Dorothy were Little Judy’s mother and father. Dorothy died of melanoma.

Kelli was their granddaughter. Her children all called Bill “Grand dad”.

Here are some pix of the little Pixie, Adrienne.

A-1 and WillumA-1 and Willum. William could not say Adrienne and he had trouble with the diphthong in William. So he said his name was Willum and his sister was A One.

Okay, I was born

Okay, I was born. Now what the hell did I get myself into?
