from TALES OF OUR ANCESTORS. By Cecil R Camfield, March 28, 1995 How Joe got to South Bend (or when) I don't know. I only know that he was a barber and married Rose Graham, who in my father's words, "Was Dirty, Shanty, Irish." Fred was born in 1874 and then Mabel. Aunt Pearl came along in '87. Because, as I got the story, Fred, at 13, was so incorrigible that when the baby came they sent him to his grandparents.


Joseph and Rose separated at some point. They are buried in seperate cemeteries.
