Note: While the Salisbury Post obituary lists Felix's middle name as "Twidell", it is shown as "Tidwell" on the Veteran's Grave Locator and in another shorter obituary from the Charlotte, NC paper. I used "Twidwell" on the memorial after finding that spelling listed on draft registration cards for Felix and Felix Sr., as well as Felix Sr.'s death certificate.
