Russell Grocery store pic (right here we got it :) Another cem. question - what is the name of the one just going out of Mace south? (funny how so many people don't LOOK -- on this site, findagrave and CDPL - oh, well). Train wreck question - I steered him toward Jerry Turner, the wreck guru. He knew the answer too !
