Uncle Joe Died


In Muscatine on Thursday, March 20, 1952, Dale wrote, “Worked 8 – 4:30.  Marie called to say Uncle Joe died Tuesday night.  Wants us to come over.  Went to store for groceries.  Got Dalene’s shoe fixed.”  Marie, in Osceola, was Dale’s sister.  Joseph Garwood was married to Sarah Gardner, daughter of John McBain Gardner, who was Dale’s great-grandfather.  They called Joe and Sarah ‘Uncle’ Joe and ‘Aunt’ Sarah anyway.
