Stewart, Mrs Joe A, Mr Alexander, Jim Gills, and Bill Crighton 1968-07-13
These interviews apparently took place at an old settlers’ reunion. Mrs. Stewart and Mr. Alexander give significant data and information. Gills relates personal information, and Crighton has a long narrative, the subject and purpose of which isn’t determinable. Much of the tape is difficult or impossible to understand. Note: Apparently in the last half-minute of the tape, Mr. Crighton dies.
