  • Notes 
    • "Cousin Alvin from Arkansas" He was a designer Los Angeles Furniture. He moved to California in the 30's (lived in Richmond) and used to visit Ray Mendenhall but rarely visited J.F.

      According to Sue Fecko Cumpston when she was a little girl and stayed a lot with her grandparents, Alvin lived there also. He never married and was such a nice man and loved to square dance. He was always on the go everywhere and traveled a lot to visit family. He was about the only one that kept in touch with all the family.

      Research: Ruie Mendenhall says Alvin died in December 1973. He died of lung cancer. [7]
