Betsy & Bill Holloway
My full name is Elizabeth Ann Hixson Holloway and I was born in Fall City. Nebraska, November 11, 1930. My father Ralph Ward (Pete) Hixson was the local veterinarian...large and small animal practice...and my mother Glenna Opal Griffin Hixson worked at the local library. I had two brothers, one died in infancy, and my other brother lives in Leavenworth, Kansas.

I think my dad worked in Youngstown for a little bit. He was Welsh. I mentioned this to your mom once...she kinda just missed it. There are so many Joneses but we thought we were the only ones growing up. We really were so Welsh. My mother was born in Baltimore and they were early settlers...you know daughters of the revolution and all. But we didn’t care about that...it was just being Welsh that we cared about.
Jane Harrier Master
That's a wonderful story; it would probably take up the whole hour. My father, William Freeny, was from the eastern shore of Maryland; it's Irish, and actually the Freeny family settled on the eastern shore in the late 1600's. At any rate, my mother, who was an accomplished musician, and my father lived in West Palm Beach where he was starting his law practice.
Jean Johnson Shaw
Alright, we lived on the corner of Park Road and Shawnee Run Road...a nice, big, beautiful farm and it just happened to be on the corner of the Columbia Township which included that area and so my neighbors and I on Park Road were all allowed to go to Terrace Park school, and there were about 12 or 13 of us that went there...and it was kinda funny how we...they didn't have busses in those days so my dad would drive us sometimes or their folks would drive us...
