Louis H. Phetteplace went on to become President of the Clinchfield at Erwin, TN.  His son (LH Jr) was some kind of manager at the Bristol TN power company and lived in the same four-flat my folks occupied until 1949.  His granddaughter married a Clinchfield engine service employee at Erwin.  LH III may still be living in Bristol.

TMI, maybe, but there ain’t many Phetteplaces around . . .
