From Oscar Burton Robbins' book, pg 255, a portion of the bio: Francis M. Kaufman was born about two miles southwest of Laud, Indiana, to Henry and Samantha (Bell) Kaufman. Most of his school days were spent at the Maring school, one mile south of Laud. . . The buying and selling of livestock dominated the life of "F.M." from the time he was eighteen years of age to the day of his death. On that day December 30, 1938, one of the last things he did was listen to the markets on the radio, and this was something akin to miraculous. For quite a number of months, he had been unable to hear conversation over the radio unless he sat right next to it. On this day, however, he was sitting across the room when my brother asked him, "Do you want me to relay the markets to you Dad?" To our astonishment Dad replied, "No, you needn't bother, I can hear them fine today." One of the last things he said was that he would like to live to see the return of Christ. /signed/ Bess (his daughter)
