On Monday, July 2, 1951, vacationing from Muscatine in Osceola with his family, Dale wrote, “Took Mother to Lloyd’s. Stan and I got haircuts at Devore’s. Went to Ruth and Louie’s farm in the afternoon and stayed for supper. Back to Mother’s at 9 p.m.” Lloyd was Dale’s brother, Louie was Helen’s brother. Barber John Devore was considered family since his daughter Beverly married Roswell Gardner’s son Raymond.
