'Aunt Orpha' was cousin of my dad. Taught school either at Day or Wiseman (maybe both) and retired from teaching in Summerville, TN. My mom and Orpha left Wiseman during WW II to work at airplane factory in Memphis, TN and were roomates then and even shared a house after they married when war was over.

Think I have Jeff’s wife mixed as sister too. As well as family, I knew most of these folks as a child. Mom is 88 yo now and says this is right (but am beginning to question her recall at times, so 2nd opinion would be welcome).
