I live in Overland Park, KS and am retired. I have enjoyed the FAG site, as I have found many of my ancestors there, as well as past acquaintances who I was not aware had passed on.

I Remember When
Loth girls
Here is message from the girls 1st cousin, Bill Huff whom I see has contacted you. I have lost your email address so ~ ~
When Valerie was living in Albuquerque I used to stop and see her and the kids every now and then but she moved back to Wichita and is now in Tulsa. Vicki is still in Wichita. Valerie for some reason is not on speaking terms with me. I have contacted their brother and he never responded. Vicki did say hello once. I have a Nazi banner from Bill and some pictures but they don't seem interested.

RE: Sea Sand
Did not mean to confuse you. Thought I was explicit in explaining who I am. We have never communicated with each other. I will ask Boggess.
Regards

RE: SM Parkway
The Post Office had a 100 year lease with the Barkleys, reverting back to them, John leased most of their properties (which had belonged to her family) that way.

My email is billboggess@webtv.net.

I went back once a very few years after moving to Naples and saw a lot of change even then, ~ however I find 6915 Johnson drive is still existing as I knew it except for blue awnings. The building, was owned by the Barkleys, known as the Little Court House. The northeast county fire dispatcher's room was behind ours and court was held twice a week in the rooms to the east of us, plus the county auto license place was at east end of the building, with Duncan's Dry cleaners in building behind us. One of Bob Wade's restaurants, operated by his 1st ex-wife, was on the curve (old highway #50) to our west when I was there. First a Lumber yard later Moffets, Centennial Bank branch office which use to give me run of the Safety Deposit room after hours for my four boxes with coin collections, and a grocery store sat east of it.

Some kids at North High would stop in our apartment buildings and smoke pot in the basement stairwells.

Interesting was the fact that when in Westegarde's apts, 51st & Foster I went to slept in City of Merriam but woke up in the City of Overland Park. They had switched around midnight.

I guessed your were of the fairer sex, and figured that #50 was the parkway. How well I remember it, ~ back around 1949, when in engineering college at 10th & Bales, I was out in Johnson county one night driving east back to Missouri on the new road where they had just poured concrete east of Nall which I drove into. Got out of it and went north on Nall to Johnson drive, then #50 and back home to 12th & Askew. Ten years later I was employed in Johnson county till 1969.

About ten years ago a cousin, David Owens, of around Independence, MO, was employed at what became Sprint, but got the can tied to his coat tail. My father set up original books for Mr Brown's United Telephone company in Abilene, Kansas around 1926 or so when with Arthur Andersen in their K C office.

The TWA training center was katy-corner from the later Holiday Inn, on Jack Bears property, (SE of the cloverleaf) and WW I Medal of Honor awardee, John Barkley, whose wife owned all the land NE, once to Lamar. The sewer district was then at 6915 Johnson drive, Barkley's building, so I got to know John before I left the sewer district.

Yes, I am still in Florida, however NOV 2006 removed from Naples to www.shellpoint.org (i'm on the island, Royal Bonnet Court) because my health was starting to be a problem, mainly the heavy smokeing I enjoyed until 1985 had taken its toll on my lings. The Veterans Administration, first provided oxygen, then about four years ago a power scooter. I use the power scooter, my "Rolls Royce", to get around our nearly 600 acre campus, makes my life, at 87 y/o enjoyable.

Are you a male or female, and I looked at GOOGLE and don't find Shawnee Mission Parkway. The Cloverleaf apts I lived in were NW of Metcalfe (#69) & U S #50 Cloverleaf.

RE: William Loth
I once lived in the Cloverleaf apts (didn't know Bill until later) when they were new, had the basement apartment in the northeast most building, then moved to the Westagard's new ones westside of Foster, north of the motel, then to the Heritage Hills apartments in Mission.

I had been the assistant chief engineer for the Johnson County Sanitary Sewer Districts, 1960 until 1969, then with private engineering firms, retiring Apr 1979, moving to Naples, FL 1984.

Bill loved his automobiles, they had three Mercedes and a Rolls Royce when he died, 2nd wife died two months later.

Bill was court ordered to provide her the house and pay all of its bills, ~ so he offered to give it to me if I married his ex-wife, which I didn't do.
