      NOTES:

      Compiler's most vivid memory of "Uncle Floyd" is of a visit to his farm in the early 1950s. The farm and the farmhouse were beautifully maintained, simple, but very attractive. When compiler and her parents were preparing to leave, Uncle Floyd gave compiler an ear of popcorn taken from one of his fields. Although compiler was well-acquainted with growing sweet corn and field corn in the garden of her own rural home, she was astonished that popcorn was grown in the same manner!
