    Notes 
    Married:
    • Bill Boyer notes:

      "Marge was from Wyomissing, PA.  I think they married when George was in his seventies.  She had this little Chihuaua named Tiki that she loved; not so sure that George felt the same way about it, but in any case, George and the dog died at the same time so she buried them together in the same casket."   (JSH: this has to be one of the best and most bizzare stories yet) [11]
