Notes for FLORENCE ELIZABETH WHITE:
From telephone call between Karen and Florence Freilino - February 4, 2001:
James and Florence met on a bus when Jimmy helped Florence open a window. She was travelling home from school at a maternity hospital in Brooklyn, New York, and he was coming back from the army after serving in Panama. His family at that time was in Bradford, where his father Secondo was building two houses. Jimmy had been ill and was very pale and thin after an illness in Panama. They married the next day. Florence said it took them so long (!} because the first JP they went to wouldn't marry them because they were from different states. Jimmy went on to Bradford and they next saw each other about three months later. Florence barely recognized him because he was healthy and tanned and had gained weight.
They lived in Jamestown until 1937 and their first son was born there. They then moved to Gilpin Township, Armstrong County, PA.
