  • Notes 
    • (Research):When I was browsing the Oliver's I was reminded of the story my dad always told about Aunt Lott (Charlotte Gregory) his grandmother's sister. Lott was much older, from your data she was about 18 years older, than Ida and never married. She lived down the road from the farm but came every day at exactly 11:45 for the noon meal which Ida made for everyone including the farm hands. Lott would always let her chickens or cow get out and my dad would have to go down to her house and get them inside the fence again.

      One day Lott did not show up and John Oliver, my dad's grandfather sent him down to see what was wrong. when dad got to Lott's house he said everything looked fine until he looked in the window and saw a hole in the floor. Lott had been sitting in her chair next to a stove and her clothes must have caught fire and she burned a hole in the floor and she and the chair fell through to the cellar but the house did not catch fire.

      I know that this sounds strange but my dad was the one who found her and he always told us this story.
