Source 10: George was a Supervisor at a Studebaker Car Dealer in Denver Colorado when his son was a young boy. Then they moved back to South Bend Indiana because his mother Ora Elizabeth May Mummy Mendenhall was homesick for Indiana. George's first daughter was born in South Bend at home. Soon after his sister's birth the family moved back to Denver Colorado where his son was baptised and his second daughter was born at home. In Denver George worked at a Gasoline Filling Station on Federal Boulevard. Later George went to work for the Public Service Gas and Electric Company in Denver Colorado. He dug ditches for gas mains installation until he was injured. Then he worked as a clerk until he retired. The family traveled to the World's Fair in Chicago Illinois in 1933. They drove through Kansas and Nebraska at night because it was too hot to drive during hte day. Since it was during the depression, money was very tight. The children collected bottles and sold newspapers and magazines to earn money to pay to ride the rides at the Fair. George raised rabbits. The neighbors also raised rabbits. Since the rabbits became pets in the families, the two neighbors traded rabbits to kill for food so they didn't have to kill their pets.
Source 11: George had thick curly hair. George was a Marine.
