Wagner Connection with Emma Zwig


--Paxton Weekly Record.  29 October 1959.

I do remember that Alice Wagner was someone special to Grandma and Grandpa Arnold. Alice would have been a niece of Beckie's and a first cousin to Grandpa Ernest Arnold. I think Alice maybe later married a Shambrook. Ray possibly. Anyone else recall? I think they lived in the home Ronnie and Sandy Shambrook lived in on Weldon Street. Just three homes to the east of our home, behind the Congregational Church. Ray would sit on the front porch and watch television.
