In Reply to: Re: Millsap/Williams in Iowa and Texas? - Now Washington state too by J.J. Millsap of 767

A little more information has found its way into my paws... A kind person from WA state sent me the obituary for Charles S. Millsap and Lillie Williams Millsap, as well as a notice for the 40th Anniversary for Harley Millsap and his wife (not named). I've included them below. I've also been in touch with the wife of Florence (Flossie)'s nephew in South Dakota, but am still looking for Flossie's obituary if anyone has it.
