Mom said to me in 2017 that "my father's birthday and Harold's mother's birthday are the same day. Aug 14th". JRN
Elmer had a red smoking jacket that he wore when he smoked a pipe and Daddy used to call him "Lord Calvert". Which until now I thought was random, but knowing Dad I looked it up. Lord Calvert was a title held by a number of men in Maryland, and usually refered to the Baron Baltimore, the one that the city was named after. Oh. Elmer's father's farm was near Baltimore.
Elmer's obit said he had the store for 29 years. Uncle Ray is in this photo, and so this is around 1903. JLR

Elmer Davison died on his daughter Aileen's birthday (my mother), something I never knew and only learned here, putting this site together. They were stoic, oh boy. (JLR)
