I received an e-mail from Sally Buttars with some information about Grandma’s (Colleen Andra Jonas) Journal. Here are the details she helped with (with minor editing).
“Chick ( Delbert Bair) was a Richmond original. Chick lived up on third East and first South and his home sat right on the corner. The home is still there. Chick nevered married. I use to deliver the Herald Journal to him. Chick had this monkey and it was mean. Chick’s brother Blaine (Cub Bair) lived just through the field behind my Dad and Mom’s home. Cub and his wife Emma did a lot of things with my folks.”
“Now Dutch (Dutch Reese) didn’t live in Richmond. Dutch was from Amalga. Dutch was a big time cattle buyers. He used to come to Richmond a couple of times a day just to have coffee at LD’s. I used to work at LD’s at that time. Dutch was one of the biggest BS’ers in the valley, but he had the heart of gold. I’ll never forget Dutch. He had eye glasses that looked like the bottom of a Coke bottle. Dutch would tease every waitress that worked at LD’s.”
