  1. Hi Marilyn not sure if you remember me or not, Jane Ellen Higginson, left the area in 1959 I remember Dean because his folks moved into the house where we had lived across from Eisterholds. Several years ago I stopped and knocked on the door and asked Mrs Straw if I could take some videos of the place and she said of course. It was the last place I lived before we left southern IN. I am sorry for your loss but he is in a better place as this USA is in trouble. May he RIP.
