Judy: Norman loved the sea. About 1951 he won some money at the dog races in Tampa and came home with the information that he bought a Chris Craft outboard motor boat that would sleep two and had a small galley. The family had many a fun day on that boat, but never slept on it. He loved to vaction on a cruise ship, combining two of his favorite activities: sailing and eating delicious food.

422 i Wesley Norman8 BUNTING , born 28 Aug 1924 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; died 5 Sep 1924 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; buried in Lake Wales, Polk, FL. DEATH: Born premature and died within a week.
423 ii Edith Anne8 BUNTING , born 14 Mar 1926 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; died 3 Dec 1926 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; buried in Lake Wales, Polk, FL. Newspaper article (no name or date): Death came early this morning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bunting of Sessoms Avenue and claimed the winsome little Edith Ann 8 1/2 months old daughter. The baby had been slightly ailing for two days with what the family thought was little baby disturbances caused from food not properly digested, and with the assistance of Dr. Tomlinson the baby was doing nicely. After 1? o'clock last night, the parents were aroused by a small cry and on awakening found her in great pain and in a serious condition. With the help of the physician everything ws done to make little Edith comfortable but at 7 o'clock death came as a relief to her sufferings. This little girl was not only the life and joy of her parents but her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Bunting who lived in her. Mr. Bunting, an invalid is confined to his home mostly and this little miss was as a bright star in his life making the pathway smooth. Funeral services will be held from the home at 3:30 today. G. W. R. Cadwell, rector of the Episcopal church from Auburndale will have charge of the services. The baby will rest beside the tiny brother at Lake Wales cemetery who died 2 1/2 years ago. The whole community sympathizes with the parents and relatives.
424 iii Cornelia Carol8 BUNTING , born 14 Jul 1927 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; died 14 Jan 1928 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL; buried in Lake Wales, Polk, FL.
425 iv Judith "Judy"8 BUNTING , born 22 Nov 1938 in Lake Wales, Polk, FL. Judy: Van Nason kept urging Cornelia to walk the halls of the hospital. Judy was about to be born, but it was slow to happen. This was Cornelia's 4th child. The first three died in infancy. Her prayer group had prayed for the past year and God had answered in the affirmative. The group strongly suggested the name of Judith, because they thought it meant "Gift from God". Judy appeared that evening of November 22, 1938 at 5 lbs 13 oz and 18 1/4 in long. The first 6 years were spent in the house at 333 Sessoms Avenue,across from Crystal Lake. Her grandparents had built the house when they arrived in Lake Wales in late 1920. They built the garage first and lived in it until the house was completed. There was a screened-in porch on the east side of the house that had canvas covering the screen. Only occassionally did someone go into that room. It was kept locked, which added to the mystery. Judy was very curious, but didn't find out that it was only used for storage until she was much older. In the back yard were several large avocado trees that she learned to climb and navigate expertly. There was a great feeling of freedom when she was in those trees. She also enjoyed roller skating, swiming and riding a tricycle. Nearby was a large playground. From the time she could walk until she had her own children, Judy spent hours there with her friends, scampering over the swings and slides. When she was a toddler, Nancy, the maid would put her in the stoller after her nap and off they'd go to the park. The city pavillion and beach on Lake Wailes were nearby, too. She learned to swim about 5 years old, but going to the beach at Daytona helped. Another memory was Judy and her Daddy walking a few blocks (Lake Wales was small!) to the drug store in town and getting an ice cream sundae. What a treat! During the school years that she was 4 and 5, she attended Mrs. Miller's kindergarten. Most of those same children graduated together in 1956 from Lake Wales High School, with a graduating class of 103. In 4th and 5th grade, Judy learned how to play a song flute and in 6th grade took up the flute, which she enjoyed, along with the bagpipes, until she played at F.S.U. with the Marching Chiefs. Scattered throughout her childhood and teen years, she took piano lessons, dancing lessons and became a Brownie and Girl Scout. Around 5th grade she sailed in the young people's pram fleet, with the fastest pram around - The Bye Baby Bunting, sponsored by her dad's C.P.A. firm, Bunting, Tripp and Ingley. If she wasn't sailing, she was swiming or skiing, which her cousin Blair taught her. At graduation from Lake Wales High School in 1956, she played a flute solo, but not before the music disappeared. Everything stopped and teachers and students were helping look. It had blown under the risers on the stage, where sat 103 grauates and teachers. Thankfully, one young man, an angel?, spotted it and went under the risers, white robe and all, to retrieve the lost music. The solo proceded and Norman and Cornelia could breathe easy again. In the fall of 1956, she and some life-time friends entered Florida State University. Judy started out majoring in mathematics with chemistry as a minor, but couldn't figure out what to do with that as a major. At the beginning of her Junior year, she switched to math education, interning at Haines City High School, about 30 miles north of Lake Wales. After interning, she decided that was not what she wanted to do, so the last semester she squeezed as many business courses as she could. Earlier she expressed an interest in accounting, but her daddy said she didn't want to do that. He had the ulcers to prove it was a high stress job. Bob Stuart came on the scene before her Junior year and by graduation they saw marriage in the future. Judy got a job at Lewis State Bank, owned by future friends from Holy Comforter Episcopal Church. Being a teller was fun and Bob and Judy were very active at church with choir and leading a junior high EYC group. In 1962 Bob entered Virginia Seminary in Alexandria, Virginia. In May 1965, he had a degree and they had 2 boys, heading to Federal Point, Florida. Bob was a vicar for that church and one in Bunnell, Florida 45 miles away. Federal Point was on the St. John's River and everyone was a potato farmer or involved somehow with the farming industry. The second year there Judy taught math at Palatka High School. Math teachers were so scarce, they were begging. The principal was great and very supportive, but the next year the third child was expected and she wanted to be with her 2 small boys. In 1968 St. John's Cathedral called Bob to be a Canon (assistant rector) and the family of 5 moved to Southside Jacksonville. Everything was so different. This was an urban area, lots of people, close neighbors, crowded highways and roads. When Robby began 2nd grade, he was miserable. A wonderful Sister Bernadette took him in hand. He went to the John Carroll Montessori School for one year and then was joined by Judy and his brothers for the next year. Judy worked in the office, taught 7th & 8th grade math, and 4th grade all in one year. That summer Bob got a call to a church in Panama City. For five years he was the rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. They lived a block from the bay and 20 minutes from the Gulf. Rusty went to Holy Nativity School when he was 3 and 4, but then joined his brothers at the local public school, which was very innovative. Camping became the summer vacation for the family. Most of the time it occured during July and they could be found in the North Carolina mountains. Bob took a strong interest with the pottery that the craftsmen created, so Judy took 3 courses in ceramics at the local college and produced an assortment of pots and an appreciation of the work of the North Carolina craftsmen. In the fall of 1974 Judy started volunteering one day a week at Oakland Terrace School that the three children attended. The next fall, still as a volunteer, she co-taught "Individualized Science." During this time, marital problems came to the surface and in September, 1976 they divorced. Judy and the children found a little house on Buena Vista Blvd, near their old neighborhood. It was very important to the boys, that they stay in the same schools. Judy worked as a teacher's aide at Cove Elementary School, working one year with a Title I program and the next year handling the money and tickets for lunch and breakfast program and helping in the library. Also, Judy was taking library science courses from the branch campus of University of West Florida. In April, 1978 Judy and Don Bennett were married at St. Andrew's Church. Don was an administrator in the electrical engineering department of the local Naval Laboratory, now Naval Coastal Systems Station. Six months later Don started having small seizures, which were found to be caused from a brain tumor. As soon as the doctors from Shands Hospital at University of Florida in Gainesville returned from Christmas/New Years vacation in January, 1979, Don had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in the brain. He had already had a lung removed, due to cancer about 15 years before. After radiation, he was able to go back to work at the Naval Coastal Systems Center. For 17 years Judy felt very blessed. As she had been a "gift from God" to her parents, Don had been a "gift from God" to her. Don had 5 children, one living with them that first year. Robyn was a senior in high school and Judy had no idea what to do with a girl! Everyone survived and over the years kids left for college and another kid would move in. At one time there were more people than there were beds. For a month Robert slept on a mattress in the living room until Eric went to Univ. of Arkansas. Over the years Judy had been a stay-at-home mom and step-mom, enjoying all the children's activities and their friends, but she also had time to be the church's Christian Education coordinator for many years. She also taught Sunday school and vacation Bible school, designed curriculum, was on the diocese's Christian Ed committee, enjoyed crafts, sewing and gardening. During the fall of 1978, she joined Don in a 3 year ungraded course from Sewanee Seminary called "Theological Education by Extension", now "Education for Ministry". During the winter of 1983-84, the church decided to purchase a computer for the church office. Judy and two others enrolled in a computer class to find out how to use a computer. It happened to be a beginner's programming class and Judy was hooked. Because she enjoyed it so much, she took all the programming and math classes that Gulf Coast Community College had to offer. Also, she helped set up and run the church's membership and offering program. After her mother died in 1986, she became interested in family history. By the time Don died, she was very involved with her genealogy and in the local society as an officer. From Don's death until March, 1997 she concentrated on Don's family and presented each of his children and brother with 7 family books and a photo album of Don and his family. Then Judy went back to her family, especially the Bartleson and Porters in anticipation of a Bartleson family reunion July 4th, 1997. In 1990 Judy started volunteering at the public library. She worked with others, carding returned books. When the library went on computer, she mended books. That was lonely and boring, so she worked in the Genealogical room, half the time doing her own genealogy.

Notes for Warren
From Aunt Mardy's memories: My brother Warren was a scamp and always into mischief. One Sunday when Mama and Papa all dressed up for church they came out to get in the buggy. Warren had changed the wheels putting the back wheels on the front and vice versa. When they tried to get in the buggy it nearly threw them out. Another time he whitewashed the fence around the horse yard. The horse rubbed himself against the fence and was covered with white paint. Another time - no church. When Warren and his first cousin, Fred, Uncle Charlie Bartleson's son were about four or five years old, Mama and Aunt Lura dressed them up in their clean, white, little clothes and shoes and socks and Warren went over to play with Fred. Mama and Aunt Lura had been invited to an elegant, society wedding in Riverside and they planned to go together. The colored stableman told them that when the bride and groom came down the steps after the ceremony everyone greeted them by throwing rice at them which was to bring them good luck. As Mama and Aunt Lura came out of the church they spied two dirty little street urchins at the foot of the stairs pelting the bride and groom with something. To their surprise and horror they recognized Fred and Warren. Grabbing the culprits they rushed them out of sight and to the bathtub. They had been told by the stableman that he didn't have any rice to give them so they used chicken feed to bring the newly-weds good luck!!!
Mardy: Lake Wales had a very small school so my brother Warren talked my parents into letting him go to school in a nearby town, Bartow, about 15 or 20 miles from Lake Wales. He was just before graduating from High School when he ran away and shipped out on a freighter for the summer.
The following are stories from Cornelia, Warren's older sister, about his childhood in Lake Wales. One day Warren and a friend decided to see how many chinaberries stones they could stuff up their noses. The trouble was that Warren, the winner, couldn't get all his out, so his mother had to take him to the doctor and let him removed them. Balancing peas on a knife and see if they would all roll down into his mouth was tame in comparison.
Bonnie Bartleson: Warren boarded in Bartow so he could attend a high school. Twice he ran away and joined the Merchant Marines. While on the ships, he learned knotting and later made hot pads and a stool cover with heavy string. One trip was made to Cuba. Later he attended University of Florida and Auburn, majoring in architecture. He had to quit when Frank, his older brother, became injured and left the family with poor finances. He worked at Bartleson Wholesale Grocery for awhile, but the store did not support every employee. Then he went to work for the railroad. At Wynne, AR he met Margaret, the next to the youngest of 5 girls. He litterly ran into her while she was sipping lemonade. Her father, Clarence Lancaster, worked for the railroad. Clarence also owned the movie theater there. Margaret's mother was Mary Hudson Lancaster. They eloped December 15, 1929 to Forrest City, AR. They moved back to Florida and lived for three years with his parents. Later they lived in an apartment where they became friends with Pete and Van Nason. Margaret hated the weather and was scared of the water, so they moved back to Arkansas. He found a temporary job with the Arkansas Highway Department, which lasted 33 years. He retired 22 Jun 1966 at age 61. In 1958 he suffered his first heart attack. In 1969 he died of heart failure. He loved to drive cars, swim and dive, play cards and do jigsaw puzzles. He was very handy making things with his hands. He enclosed their back porch, making it a den, made kitchen cabinets, rebuilt the garage and made a carport. Warren enjoyed math, but he also wanted a job where he could be outside and he could travel. Working as a civil engineer with the Arkansas highway department was perfect. Because of the summer heat in the Arkansas outdoors, he invented and designed an Air Conditioner unit for the house and another for his car, before the time when air-conditioners were used. At the First Presbyterian Church, he was a deacon and then an Elder. Every Sunday, while Bonnie and Margaret were dressing for Sunday School and Church, Warren would write a letter to the family. Warren was very concientious about his work. After he finished his responsibilities ahead of schedule, he would help the other employees finish theirs so the entire project would be on time. He liked people and was very outgoing.
From a paper written by Arkansas Highway Dept, June 22, 1966: Warren Knowlton Bartleson: Today we honor a senior member of our Planning and Research Division, Warren Knowlton Bartleson -- better known to us all as "Bart" -- for completing, uninterrupted, thirty years of dedicated efforts with the Department. Bart is Section Head of Data Analysis, Reduction and Computer Programming Section of Planning and Research; or, as better known, Road Inventory. Of the nearly 75,000 miles of roads and streets in Arkansas -- Bart is the only man that knows where they all are, who uses them, and their conditions. His abilities to develop new methods and techniques for analyzing and presenting road inventory information are unexcelled, and some of his procedures are being used by other states. Bart was born in Jacksonville, Florida, educated in the schools of Bartow,and later attended the University of Florida where he studied Civil Engineering. Working for a Railroad brought him to Arkansas where he met the former Miss Margaret Lancaster of Wynne, whom he married in 1929. They have one daughter, Bonnie Kay, who works in Little Rock. Bart is an Elder in the First Presbyterian Church of Little Rock. He enjoys a favorite hobby "loafing". It is indeed a pleasure to present you this thirty year Pin and Certificate for continuous service to the Highway Department. The foundation that has been laid by your efforts will be the basis to continue our progress in building the best roads possible.
Copy of magazine article; no name or date: Five Department employees were recognized for their years of service and four of them received longevity awards during the June 22 meeting of the Highway Commission. W.K. "Bart" Bartleson, head of the Data Analysis, Reduction and Computer Programming Section at Planning and Research;...have each completed 25 years. The section headed by Bart Bartleson is better known as the road inventory section and Bart probably knows more about the 75,000 miles of roads and streets in Arkansas, who uses them and their condition than anyone else in the state. Some of the methods he originated for analyzing and presenting road inventory information is being used by other states. A native of Jacksonville, Fla., Bart studied civil engineering at the University of Florida. He worked for a railroad in Arkansas before coming to the Highway Department. He and Mrs. Barlteson, the former Margaret Lancaster of Wynne, reside at 58 Flag Road. They have one daughter, Bonnie Kay, who is employed in Little Rock. Bart is an elder at First Presbyterian Church. As is to be expected of an elder, Bart is an honest man - he admits that his favorite hobby is loafing...

Notes for Margret
Family: Margret decided on the spelling of her name. She was born in Riverside, Jacksonville. She was the youngest.
Aunt Mardy's memories: My oldest brother (Frank) had a little grocery store not far from where we lived. I was only about a year or two. I loved to go to see him because he gave me candy. He would sit me on the counter and I would entertain the customers by telling my name and baby-talking while he bribed me with candy and cookies. "Big brotherly Pride". After my nap and bath in the afternoons while my nurse was finding my clean clothes I would slip out and get the sugar bowl. They followed my trail down the street to my brothers store and there I was sitting on the counter with no clothes on. Not for long, though. Our family used to spend the summer at Pablo Beach, now known as Jacksonville Beach. It was a joy to go in the ocean. However, it ruined my skin and I'm paying for those joys with having skin cancers removed frequently. When I was a little girl Grandma Bartleson used to have a seamstress who lived across the street from her make some lovely little dresses for me. She told me she was having them made for a little friend who was just my size. I was so naive that I believed her. But there was one dress that had a high lace collar around the neck. I hated that dress and tried to tear the collar off every time I was made to wear it, but I never could. Grandma and Aunt Maggie lived next door to each other on Fourth Street in Springfield. The streets were made of brick and very noisy when horses and wagons went by so if anyone was ill or died, they barricaded the street and put rubber tires on the buggies so the noise would not disturb the ill or dying. Every Saturday Mama gave me a quarter and I would go to town. Ten cents for the street car, ten for a movie and five for candy. I spent at least 1/2 hour going back and forth trying to decide which candy to buy with my precious 5 cents. One time while in a movie a girl sat next to me. I was so engrossed in the movie that I didn't know she had put her hand in my purse and stole my money. When we came out of the movie we didn't have any car fare to get home. The usher called my daddy and told him he would give us money to get home. Papa went back later and paid him. It was quite a thrill putting a penny on the street car tracks and when the car rolled over it it would flatten. However, not realizing the danger I got quite brave and put a board on the track. The trolley had to stop so the conductor had to remove it. The talking to I had to listen to quickly took the naughtiness out of me and that was the last time I got that brave. We lived in a big lovely two story house in Jacksonville (Brentwood). A very nice section but since has deteriated and not a nice section now. We moved to Lake Wales in 1920 where my Daddy opened a wholesale grocery warehouse which serviced all the small towns in that section of the state. Neta worked as secretary. There were no house to rent so we boarded with the Thulberry family until Papa could make arrangements for living quarters. Lake Wales had only one paved street, the north-south highway, known as the Scenic Highway. No sidewalks and we had to plod through deep sand to get to "town". Having just come down from Jacksonville I couldn't understand where the street car tracks were. Papa bought some big 16 X 16 army tents and had wooden floors installed and walls about 3 feet high. We had electricity and water installed so we were quite comfortable. There was a large living room tent, dining room & several bedrooms tents, a small kitchen and a small tent for the colored maid that we brought from Jacksonville. They were placed on the edge of a lovely lake. Our only inconvenience was bathing in the winter. Summer was fine. I learned to swim and to dive in that lake. A little neighbor boy (Jack Ahl) came over every day in his boat and we rowed around the lake. One day we caught an alligator about 4 feet long. Jack shot it and we took it home to have our pictures taken. Papa had a big leather couch. The top lifted up and revealed a storage area. Mama filled it with books. I loved to read and every Sunday morning I suddenly acquired a tummy ache and had to stay home from Sabbath School. By Monday morning I regained my health. I didn't think I could get by with another day at home. I wanted a bicycle for Christmas so badly but with no paved streets it was unlikely that I would get one but I did. It took 13 months to get our house built but we survived. Lake Wales had a very small school so my brother Warren talked my parents into letting him go to school in a nearby town, Bartow, about 15 or 20 miles from Lake Wales. He was just before graduating from High School when he ran away and shipped out on a freighter for the summer. I was a member of the Campfire Girls and we used to have lovely overnight campout trips. Mavis Holmes was our teacher and Campfire leader. My daddy let me have the car on Thursday afternoons. I would load it full of my friends and all we did was ride around the town and the big lake. We spent nearly all of our afternoons and Saturdays at the lake swimming or skiing. Actually, it was surf boarding as we didn't have skiis then. We lived in a two story house facing the lake on the corner of Lakeshore Boulevard and Central Avenue. My Daddy was instrumental in getting the (oak) trees planted around the lake as he was on the City Council and planning Commission at that time. Fifty years later the whole hillside looks lovely with the large oak trees and homes covering the hillside. I spent my last year in high school in Atlanta with May and Roy and graduated from Decatur High. After that I returned to Lake Wales and got a job with the City of Lake Wales as Assistant City Clerk. I sent out tax notices and collected the taxes. While working, my Mother and Daddy took a trip to Fort Myers to visit his sister. When they left on their way to Miami on the Tamiami Trail a tire blew on the car, sending it into the canal which ran along the side of the highway. The door flew open sending my daddy to the bottom of the canal. Mama could just barely get her head above the water. She got his hand and tried to pull him up but to no avail and finally felt his hand go limp. Some people stopped and helped her out but he was gone. They took her to the hospital in Fort Myers. I stayed with her so did not get to attend the funeral but the reports were it was one of the largest ever held in Lake Wales. A couple of years later May, Neta and I went on a trip to the World's Fair in Chicago. We had a wonderful time and the people in the stateroom next to us said they could hear us laughing and giggling nearly all night long. One thing that impressed me was the twilight until 10 o'clock at night. In 15 minutes after the sun goes down in Florida it is pitch dark. Nearly every summer Papa would load us all in our little car and head for Atlanta. We would stop along the way and get watermelons, corn, little bitty lima beans and all sorts of fresh vegetables. There was hardly any room for our feet. Several trips I made to Atlanta was on the train alone or with someone from Lake Wales who was going up. May would take me to Lakewood Park where I had a ball on the ferris wheel, roller coaster, etc. She also took me to movies and I saw my first ballet which I thought was out of the world. At 10 the family moved to Lake Wales, where she entered grade school. She was in the Campfire Girls, where they went on lots of camping trips and slumber parties.
Newspaper Clipping in possession of Blair LittleJohn: 1921: Shot an alligator - Jack Ahl shot a five foot alligator in North Lake Wailes. Saturday morning. The young man discovered the gator sunning himself in the grass in the edge of the east side of the lake and getting his 25-35 put a ball through the reptile's head. Miss Margaret Bartleson came across the lake in her boat and the two took Mr. Gator to the Bartleson place.
Mardy: About 1924, Margret went with her parents to Ft. Myers for the winter and she attended school there. In Junior High School she started dating Blair LittleJohn, from Star Lake. During her high school years they would gather at the lake to swim and water ski. Her father would let her drive the family car to drive around the lake or "drag the main". She was initiated into a high school sorority.
Mardy: At 16 she went to Washington, D.C. with her Papa, Mama, and Warren by way of Atlanta. The four had a "suite" of rooms in a lovely hotel for the weekend for $10.00. From there they went through Pennsylvania to Cleveland where they boarded a ferry and made the overnight trip across Lake Erie to Detroit. They visited Wessie's sister Etta in Detroit. They crossed the border into Canada at Windsor one day. On their return trip they went by Grand Chain, Illinois, John's birthplace. They met quite a few of his relatives who came for a reunion that was held at a cousin's home on a high bluff over the Ohio River.
Mardy: For her last year of high school she lived with her older sister, May, and attended Decatur High School. She worked as Assistant City Clerk for the city of Lake Wales. One summer Wessie and Margret took a boat trip from Jacksonville to New York. Another summer she went to Cuba with several friends on a boat trip. After graduation, Blair worked for the U.S. Corp of Engineers on the Mississippi River and later on the Intracoastal Waterway Canal through Florida. He lived in Delray for a while and later in Miami. He would drive to Lake Wales on the weekends to see Margret and drove the 5 or 6 hour trip back to Miami after midnight getting there in time to go to work on Monday mornings. He gave up his position with the government and went in business with his brother-in-law, Jack Faircloth. They had the International Harvester Company Agency for 30 years. Margret and Blair were married in 1937.

Notes for Blair
Blair: Blair's folks were from N.W. South Carolina near Spartanburg. When the Depression hit, his father moved to Washington State, followed by the rest of the family. Blair was the only one born in Twisp, WA. He had 2 brothers, nicknamed Poncho (Howard Andrews) and Caesar (Charles Milton) and 1 sister, Dean. Howard Andrew, his father, had a general merchandize store and was the postmaster in Pateros, WA. While there Howard worked for a developer and surveyor, owning the first automobile, a Brush. He was a "chopper" among other things. In 1916, Daisey Rice, his mother, Dean and himself moved to Belton, SC, his mother's home, although Daisey and Idell were born in South Carolina. Soon the rest of the family followed. Joel Towers Rice, Blair's grandfather, built the family a house in Belton, where they lived from 1918 until 1925. Howard was the postmaster. In 1925, Ceasar graduated from Clemson and he and his dad moved to Lake Wales. Blair drove his mother down to Lake Wales to join them. Milton's first job was with a realter, doing surveying and then with the Mountain Lake Corporation as an engineer, helping with the building of the Bok Tower. They lived in an apartment, diagonally to the high school. Howard and Stemwick bought school buses and transported children. Occassionally Blair drove the buses while in high school. In 1928 Blair went to Clemson, graduating in 1932 with a civil engineering degree. He was a member of Tau Beta Phi, an honorary engineering fraternity. His first job was with the U.S. Engineering Department on the Mississippi River as a building inspector of permiable pile dykes. He lived in Tiptonville, TN. From there he was moved to Tampa, working with dredging and contruction. Later he was moved to West Palm Beach, where he helped build the Intercostal waterway between Delray and Ft. Lauderdale. He was the government inspector of the private dredger. Later he was in Miami, involved in the dredging of the port for the berths for ships. He made sure the barges dumped in the proper locations in the ocean. In 1937 Jack Faircloth and Blair became partners. Jack had already worked for International Harvester so they had the dealership for IH, both trucks and tractors. The tractors brought in good business from the vegatable farmers. Later they became the 1st Datsun dealership. Datsons are now Nissans. In 1937 another partnership was formed. Blair and Margret were married. Margret was the 1st girl he met and knew in Lake Wales. Jack and Blair sold their business in 1965. He retired from full-time employment, but worked for 19 years in the winter for H & R Block. Margret and Blair could then enjoy many years traveling in their Airstream trailer, through the U.S., Mexico and Canada.
