From Clifford Lackore: The Lackores were Methodists, which was the only Church in good old Hayfield and was across the street from our grandparents' home. My grandmother was a Methodist minister's daughter, a real true Christian. I'll always remember parts of her regular prayers. She ended with asking the blessing on all to the third and fourth generations and am glad and thank the Lord for that wonderful memory.

4 iii. John Chester LACKORE
5 iv. Mortimer Elvin LACKORE
