    Notes from Randy Lucas in June, 2000. "Wade Thompson wa s a farmer and worked at odd jobs helping other farmers a s I was growing up. Nell Trump should be able to help wit h information as your mother and sister were growing up."

    Notes from Clyde Maxey. "There was a man, Sidney Akers, tha t didn't have but one eye and really couldn't see well ou t of the other. He was working for the railroad and an unex ploded dynamite cap blew up when his pick hit it thus putti ng his eye out. (I guess he got his medical bill paid but t hat was all. How times have changed.)Now Sid used a straig ht razor to shave with and everyone predicted that he woul d one day cut his throat bad.
    One day Wade was on his way to the store at Pleasant Valle y and passed by "Big" Charlie Reed's house. Charlie said , "stop and tell us a lie" to which Wade replied, "I can' t right now, Sid Akers has finally cut his throat and I a m on my way to the Valley to get help."
    After he had gone, Charlie decided to go down to Sid's an d see if he could offer any assistance. Naturally when he g ot there Sid was all right. Charlie became very mad and ap proached Wade about the situation. Wade said, "you said t o tell you a lie, so I did." There was nothing Charlie coul d do."
