Treasure Chest Thursday - Granny M's Memory Bk pt9

Okay, I'm a little late today with the posting but my husband and I came back from vacation and I think I finally know what people mean by jet lag. I have been playing catch up all week long.

Anyway, here is the next installment of my grandmother/great-grandmother's memory book. When last we left my grandmother, in last week's posting found here, she was writing about what Zelma was doing. So this week we find out that....

"was born. Well do I remember helping mama carry Cornelia to see the new baby Zelma at the little house on the hill. Cousin Edna's 2nd daughter Doris is 38 yrs. old and 3rd daughter Eunice is 33 yrs old. 1954 Dr Henderson had a wreck June 21, 1954 & died July 8, 1954 - his wife VaLeria died May 21 1954

he was a wonderful Dr. his wife gave me a recitation "The Skeptic's Daughter" to memorize when I was 15 yrs old & I will never forget here. 
{On the right side of the page}
Dr had 3 children 2 boys 1 girl Raymond Elane & Arvin Jr"
The obituary in the bottom right corner is for Thomas W Richardson, has July 18, 1961 written at the top and states the following:
"Thomas W Richardson, 38, Dies in Louisville Tuesday
Thomas Wayne Richardson, 38 year old resident of Pleasure Ridge Park, but formerly a Barren and Metcalfe County native, died suddenly Tuesday morning around 3 o'clock. He was a patient at Waverly Hills Sanitarium for nine years, but had been discharged for a year. A Navy veteran of World War II, he is survived by his wife, Marcelle Gillock Richardson; a daughter, Charlotte, 14, and a son, Carroll, 13, both at home; his parents, Rev. and Mrs. T. A. Richardson, Glasgow; five brothers, Sam, of Glasgow; James and Harry, Cave City; Hubert, Louisville, and George, of Brookhaven, Miss. The body will remain at the A. L. Heady Funeral Home on Taylor Blvd. where services will be conducted Thursday at 11:00 o'clock, with burial in the Louisville Memorial Gardens."
I believe Thomas Richardson was a friend of the family and that is the reason for the keeping of the clipping. I have heard my aunts and mother speak of Brother Richardson.

And lastly is the birthday announcement for my grandfather and husband of the writer of the memory book, Richard Slemmons Munday. It's had the year 1960 written in the top right corner. The article reads:

"R. S. Munday celebrated his birthday Sept. 20th at his home near Wisdom, and received several gifts. Also money and cards. Guests were Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Faulkner, Rebecca, R. G. and Emily Jo, Louisville, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Munday, Susan and Martha, Edmonton, Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Chelf, Magnolia. Mr. Munday is much improved after suffering a stroke about 6 weeks ago at Sunday School at Wisdom Cumberland Presbyterian Church where he has been an elder since August 1921. He wishes to thank the church, friends and neighbors for their kindness in deeds, visits, cards and phone calls during his illness, and for the prayers of Rev. Damon London, Rev. Thurman Scott and friends. Other recent visitors of the Mundays were Mr. and Mrs. Earl Munday of Joliet, Ill. Rev. and Mrs. J. W. Barton and William, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Jolly. Also their son, Mayor William Munday of Crofton, Ky. and Mrs. Gilbert Faulkner recently celebrated their birthdays together at the Munday home, others present besides their families being the Eugene Mundays, the Chelfs, Rev. and Mrs. Bruce Chelf, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Rogers and Judy, and James Earl Munday."
This article mentions some children of my grandparents, cousins and neighbors.
