As I mentioned above, both of my grandfathers died in 1949. Since my other grandmother, Mama West, was the Post Mistress at the Startex Post Office and it was, at that time, owned by the company, she was considered an employee and was allowed to stay in her house. At least that's the way I figure it worked out. I don't know for sure since I was still six years away from breathing at the time.
This is just a little bit more trivia from the WestHouse. Thanks for listening to me ramble.
