His name was Chauncy Depew. Even though he was long dead when we came on the scene, we loved him because my mom and favorite uncle had loved him so when they were kids. Chauncy was married two times, the first to Letitia or Tissue as she was known and the second to Wanetta. He died in 1957 when he was 59 which by looking at him meant he beat the odds by a wide margin. Yes, I know his first name is misspelled- it was part of his charm. He was buried in Petrolia TX.

Her name was Rosie. She raised three boys who would fight in WWII. One of them was my favorite uncle. He fought on Guadalcanal, Tarawa and Okinawa. He died years later from a fungal infection of the ear he picked up on Guadalcanal that eventually went to his brain. She lost two boys when they were one year old or less. She died from complications secondary to a tubal pregnancy in 1931. She was 41 years old. She is buried in Riverland Cemetery. My niece looks like my mom who in turn looked like Rosie. I like that her name was Rosie.
