* In the drought(dustbowl) and depression of the 1930's, Cliff and Jennie were about to lose all they had saved after no crop for 3-5 years. They shipped their cattle and horses by train to Texas as long as their money would hold out. So as soon as rains came and they thought it was over, they brought their stock back north from Texas. If they had to start over again they were going to move to Missouri near his younger sister and her husband who also farmed. Both he and his son James were talented fiddle players.
