My father only had a few recollections. He recalled that Jim Stephens owned and ran a grain elevator in Custer City for a number of years. Later, evidently, he sold it to Lottie's brother John McDown. Thursa's married name was Haynes or Haines (unsure). They lived mostly in Colorado and had a son, Jimmy who settled in California. Dad recalls that Thursa was tall, had dark hair and was quite attractive. My only other memory of her was after she was widowed she was visiting at my grandmother's house and was wearing a very smartly tailored suit with the skirt hardly covering her knees when she sat. My grandmother commented on the shortness of the skirt and Thursa replied rather dryly, something like--"Well, a gal's gotta do what she can to catch a man at my age." She was probably about 70 at the time. Her sense of humor always stuck with me. If I come across other useful information I'll pass it on.
