Okay it is official. My eyeballs have just fallen out of my head. I had to make an adjustment to the title of this post since it is now officially Tuesday (1:27am.)  I will take this as my cue to go to sleep and pick up with things tomorrow.

  1. Boy, that's a lot of heavy language. What I'm getting from all this is that after Dr. Oscar Jones died and Ulla Jones was declared Non Compos Mentis, then Henry Jones and James Jones were given charge of the entire estate by the court. I'm sure there are parts here that I'm not noticing. . . .
