    Notes 
    • FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: Well, I didn't know what he called himself, because he also had a girl, he also had a girlfriend, I presume she was his girlfriend, right across the road from him, where he lived.

      He married a girl named Ruth, who as a Rogers, whose last name was Rogers before she married, and I understand she, her family owned a lot of land. TIM: Right. We've got a big cemetery back there with the Boothes. You've got pictures of that on the CD also. Gene Harris: I've got no idea where that is. I'd love to see it. FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: This is in Savage, around Savage. Ruth Rogers on the low plane, and she was a cute brunette with blue eyes, and she had -- Gene Harris: Now, Ruth Rogers: Who was she? She was the one that married Thaddeus Clyde Boothe? FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: Right. And so he sort of became friends with the postmaster that lived across the, right in front of their home, and, and he got mixed up with, when the time of the Depression, and they did do some moonshining or whatever you call it, I guess, because he seemed to have more money than anybody else around. FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: And, and the interesting thing that happened was that he did not, Thaddeus was, I know, from being an alcoholic, the Greyhound Bus ran off of the bridge up there between Petersburg Pike and Hopewell -- TIM DOWNEY: You see, this, Mother, this needs to be recorded here. FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: -- and, and -- TIM: -- he jumped in the water to save him. FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: And Mary, the youngest -- Gene Harris: Mary, Mary Louise Boothe? FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: -- right. Lived close by and Uncle Clyde, so I was told, Aunt Lin told me, went out to help. It's probably about as far as from here across the street, and jumped in the cold water. And -- TIM: The Greyhound bus left the road and went over into the -- FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: Yeah. And he -- TIM: -- the river. FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: -- got, he died of pneumonia. TIM: He caught pneumonia saving the passengers -- FRANCIS A. BOOTHE: From cold water. So he didn't die, evidently, as an alcoholic, he died from that.


      RANCIS A. BOOTHE: Aunt Lillian, when we get down to her, she's the most interesting to me. I asked her when I went to stay with her, she was in her, lived to be 94, I said, Which one of these was the nicest of the seven boys? And she said, Clyde, but just think about it. He, he wasn't on the job all the time. So he could, when my grandmother wanted some help, all she had to do was call Clyde and Clyde came running and -- TIM: Right. He wasn't in the field for 12 hours a day --
