      PERSONAL HISTORY:
      The following text accompanies a photo of Ethel Williams Kent (1899-1974) leaning on a fence in front of a school bus:
      "The school bus in the picture was parked in that same location for years. Uncle Jim [James "Jim" Kent (1889-1975)] had not used it as a school bus for a long time. I used to play in it when I was very young. Sometime in the 1940's Uncle Jim converted this school bus to a camper. Today the term is "RV". He removed the seats and installed a bed, kitchen area, and a couple of comfortable chairs. He then went on an extended trip out west. This bus had a top speed of somewhere around 45 MPH. As Uncle Jim was a farmer the repairs he made to this bus most always included the use of bailing wire. The trip was a success. Uncle Jim collected decorative plates with the names of all the States he visited. When I would visit him and ask about the plates he would always tell me stories about the trip in the bus. I think I still have a few of these plates but they are hiding somewhere. Texas was his favorite state. He always carried his shot gun with him on these trips. He was an expert trap and skeet shooter and would stop along the way and enter shooting contests winning many of them. I still have his well worn shotgun and my guess is there had been more than a semi load of shells fired through this gun." Don Coatney, 9/2006
