So Anyway, back to Eula, I found a *mystery* about her today, I am sure it was no mystery to anyone, especially the family. But we as outsiders (of course) did not know this.
Cave and Eula married in 1923 in Moberly, Mo. But prior to that, Eula was married to a Claude Littrell, (I would say between 1920-1921) and they had a son together, Calvin Littrel.
Calvin was born 1923, and died 1987. Mom says she had never known about Claude or Calvin, but Im not really surprised, if perhaps Eula and Calvin weren't that close, or you know family relations are, one misunderstanding and you don't talk again for another 50 years. We never know.
I am including Calvin in my (paper) files, because he was someone within the family, but as for putting him on anything online, well, he will only be on the blog, as something for me to think about.
Okay, what else (trouble) can I find, heh!
This is Cave and Eula's son, I don't remember ever meeting him, but I remember my parents talking about him.
