The following story was provided by Jim Gossett:
"In 1954, Ford launched the advertising for the '55 Thunderbird or T-Bird, the two-passenger Thunderbird had a 292-cubic-inch V-8 engine. Emory just fell in loved with this vehicle; so Emory ordered himself the Ford T-Bird from Topping Ford, Ashland, Ohio. Therefore, Emory became the first owner of a Ford Thunderbird in Ashland County, Ohio. On the weekend of the week that Emory's T-Bird arrived; Emory took the vehicle on a continuous nonstop trip, driving day and night. Emory drove Northwest up to Detroit, Michigan and on to Winsor, Canada. Emory continued East across Canada, North of Lake Erie and then returned to the states through Buffalo, New York. Emory arrive just in time for work on Monday morning at Ashland, Ohio, after his drive around Lake Erie. Yes, the Thunderbird was one of the most popular models that Ford built. In 1958, Ford built and issued out the Ford Edsel, Emory had purchased one; but we won't discuss the popularity of that vehicle."
- Memory of Uncle Emory and his twin brother George -
As relatives say: "The twins both born on the 3rd of July, were a couple of fire crackers."
As a great nephew, I, Brad Marble remember the stories filled with humor that Emory and his brother George would exchange at family gatherings. Each had a sense of what the other was going to say. Their timing and wit surpassed what I have seen by professional comic teams. Love and miss my twin uncles.
