Per P Clark Email 17 Mar 2004:
"Roy moved to Brainerd by age 19 from Glencoe to seek his fortune. At age 20 (1910) he was Co-operator of a general store with Thomas Welsh. In the early 1930's he worked as Chief of Police. In the 40's and 50's he owned a bowling alley midblock on Front Street between 5th and 6th streets. He also operated a grocery store on E Street and 5th Ave. NE for many years. He was an intelligent and soft spoken man who became overweight and bald in the second half of his life. As a young man he loved playing baseball and he was always an avid fisherman. He was a great reader and enjoyed history."

Ivy Evalina Hall:

Per P Clark 17 Mar 2004:
" Ivy was a small energetic woman with long dark hair. She loved gardening and outdoor activities. She rode a bicycle and ice-skated well into her 60's. She had at least 3 or more pets. She played the piano very well and could often be heard playing as one approached the house. She was especially fond of her grandparents and was a very simple loving woman. She died of heart disease. She was very far sighted."
