    • Leonard was 26 and Irene was 29. They were married at the First Methodist Church by Rev. Olin Graham. Irene brought three children into the marriage: Evelyn, Thomasine, and Janet. Leonard took very good care of the family, and Irene was grateful for what Leonard did for her children, but as the years passed, she found more and more excuses to stay with her sister, and could not bring herself to get a divorce.

      There was a lot of sibling rivalry between her children and their child (Dan). Leonard may have favored Dan over her children, but most of it was strong sibling rivalry.
