A little personal history from the contributor: |
Larry Eck is the son
of Floyd Russell Eck, of Waldron, and Alice Frances Rardin Eck, of Morristown.
uncles are Millard Eck and Clyde Eck. My paternal grandparents are Russell and Tressie Sanders Eckof Shelbyville. My maternal grandparents are E. F. (Pat) and Sarah Rardin, of Morristown. Pat was the long-time station-master of the B & O station in Morristown (I understand it
was moved and restored after his death).
Ellen Louise Ritter was my mother's good friend in Rushville
and Beth Ritter is her daughter. Karen Callahan
is the daughter of Harry Callahan, the local barber and a
neighbor of "Pat" and Sarah Rardin, who lived across the
street from the Kopper Kettle.
