Thank you, Phillip. I added Temple and Elwood and their wives/bios, etc. to bridge the two generation gap between Linius and the existing profile for Richard. Richard's wife, Abigail is an orphaned profile and sources need some work on both of them. The only source citation for making the connection between Temple and his parents was the 1950 Census with Abigail living with Temple and his family. If you (or any of the family) know of any other documentation for this, please add to justify that we can prove these really are the right people. Really appreciate your input!
