Catherine McGINNIS worked as a telephone operator in Steubenville. Jasper liked her voice so much he asked her out on a date. Catherine wanted to see what he looked like, so they arranged a time the next day when he would walk through town and she could see him out of her window. I guess she liked what she saw!

Information from Karin BROWN 18/4/2005

He was never married. Bill was briefly a child actor. I found a listing for a movie called “Along Came Youth” (1930) which lists Billy WHEATON in the credits as one of the Neetsfoot Boys. This would have been when Bill was about 11 years old, the right age. Mom always said he was a Dead End Boy or an East End Boy, so this is probably him in that movie.

My corrections:

Joe’s mother was Catherine with a C.; Joe’s wife was Elizabeth Rita “Bettie” Caveney, with a C. He called her Bettie Blue Eyes. Joe was a chef in the Navy. After his service, he opened a bakery. After retirement, Joe continued to bake every day. He painted watercolor greeting cards. Every time he sent a card, you got an original work of art. He was an amazing man and is missed.
