  Misc:  Esther was very short - she probably would have been classified as a midget. She was a VERY kind person especially to the kids. She visited a lot when the kids were young and she brought us things and played with us. There are several pictures of her with the various children and her cars. Her cars had to be specially equipped because she was so short. Her brother, Milton ID0043, was a welder and he made the extensions and platforms she needed so she could drive her cars. Each time she would get a new vehicle Milton would make the changes for her. Her brother Walter ID0005 took care of her in her old age. She got bad with breathing problems and finally had to be placed in a nursing home in Yorktown, Delaware Co, IN at last.  Never Married - No children
