Any information on any of the following ?

Norris Mulkey : His dad (who had an artificial leg)owned a shoe repair shop on Spring Dr. and Division in the early 1950's. Norris had an older brother and a younger sister. I heard that he went somewhere on the west coast to play pro sports (hearsay ? ).

Eddie McCardy (or Carthy) : His dad worked in the oilfields, as did mine, in the early 1950's. Eddie became a real good, self taught guitar player in the 1960's (the last time I saw him).

Raymond & Robert Strong : I went to school with Raymond, Robert was about one grade behind us. Their dad worked on the Northern Natural Gas Refinery, where they lived, outside of town. Raymond was in a bad auto accident in 1956 that killed his youngest brother and a close friend of ours, and cut Ray's face up. Robert went to work at a
grocery store there and later was made distric manager at
Safeway (I think) in Monahans and later to divisional mgr. .

Theron Titus : He also lived at the Northern Natural Gas Refinery, where his dad worked, and was in the auto accident above. Theron became a welder, and later owned his own shop in Ft.Stockton (he may still be there). I once worked for him for a short time as a helper.

Pinkey Davis : Was raised in Fort Stockton and worked on seismograph crews in the 1960's. I worked on several jobs with him years ago.

Donnie and Spooky Reed : Worked on seismograph and drilling rigs for years with these two cut-ups. I never knew Spooky's (the oldest brother) real name, just Spooky! Their dad worked in the oilfields as well.
