Adolphus Mason was my grandfather. He was born in 1879. He married Maggie Hale in 1902 in Pulaski County. He died of heart failure in Kokomo, Indiana. My brother, sister, and I waited in the hospital waiting room. His wife and my parents were with him. His nickname was "Shorty". I remember him as always wearing suspenders.
