The date of the Davis' brothers death was April 24 rather than August 24, 1949. I recently visited the Heritage Center in Abiline, Kansas and viewed artifacts and documents from this event. I had a special interest because my great-grandmother was one of the survivors of this tragedy.

You and Uncle Milt are my heros. You will never be forgotten. You and Uncle Milt are one of the reasons why I became a law enforcement officer.
