Crystal, Let's see. I believe that Aunt Mildred was Grandpa's (John Wesley "Boss" Jr.)sister. I remember as a kid going to Bardstown with gandpa and visiting her. I also remember Aunt Minnie, their sister. I also recall visiting Great Grandma Nellie. I was never clear how many siblings that grandpa had. All but one of grandpa's children have passed on. My dad was the first to pass away,(Valdemar)most people called him Pat(He married Viola M. Rhodes). His youngest brother (Calvin)who lived in LA. was next, followed by Joe, then Jake, then Aunt Buford (Agnes), followed by Herman. Paul is the only living uncle. I believe he is in a nursing home in Louisville. Jake and Buford (her married name was Fryrear)were the only ones that stayed in Bardstown. Keep in touch as I do have some info. Ralph Bowman
