Joe,

I copied your address and will most probably send out the negatives today. Priority mail. I would appreciate a few copies of the Doctor. My mom says he was a well respected Doctor in this town. I remember the name.

My uncle, Julius D. Tolliver, ( also an uncle of ours, my great uncle, a Jim Tolliver lived in Tazewell years ago also. before that, I remember our Uncle Jim living down in Powell's Valley ) worked as ( purported to be ) head of air conditioning and heating at Y-12 . He has since died over 20 years ago. He was a former coal miner from Harlan, Ky. ( he was born in Union County, TN. as I was told ) He started work there during the Manhattan Project, as did my parents. They ( my parents )lived in LaFollette during that time, to be close to Oak Ridge.

Here is Kenny Chesney's step mom's (?) obituary, from our Monroe paper. Kenny's dad, grandmother and aunt, rented an apartment ( upstairs ) from my dad and mom back around 1962.
