My Father & his Uncle Milford were inseparable as children, tho they were
Uncle (MILFORD) & Nephew (VOYLE) , they were in the same age-group &
my Father felt more of a Brother to Milford than Nephew or Friend. I have fotos
of them as young men playing with guns.
I have very fond memories of visiting my Uncle Milford & Aunt Nellie, shooting
my BeeBee gun with my Cousins , Roger, Gary, & Rickey.
I remember visiting with them while my Sister Shielah, was staying with Clifford
& Bessie. Their Dtr Laurinda is the same age as Shielah. She remembers those
visits very well.
We saw much more of Milford & Nellie because of My Dad's closeness with Milford.
When I was a Kid We generally saw them a few times a year. My Dad just hated
to travel so Milford & Nellie were always coming by with their Sons. We
had a lot of fun.

Oliver Cross and Vivian Mae Neel) on 30 Aug 1932 in Clay
