My name is Sharon (Asbury)l Widener McKibben I lived next door to the Finuf's when I was a kid . We lived at 419 Millington. They lived at 421 Millington right next door. I remember eating Apple Butter Sandwiches in your Grandma Ruth's kitchen with Eldon. Melvin was married to a Sparks from Ark City ,who was a cousin to my sister-in-law Juanita(Maynard) Asbury. One of the girls was married to a railroader and when he was working in Winfield in the summer time Her and her kids would come and stay in a railroad car that was parked on the tracks just off of 5th street about a half a block from the Finuf's . Another one of the girls was married to a Smith. They had a daughter named Marsha that was about the same age as me. I turned 58 last July.They lived out east of Winfield by Sunny Side School. I might be able to answer a few more questions for you. Mr. Finuf was an avid baseball fan. he always listened to the games that were broadcast on the radio. He also went to the Fairgrounds and watched the Winfield American Legion games when they were playing in Winfield. I rememer Mrs. Finuf's Dad . He had snowwhite hair. After he passed away Mrs Baum ,the old widow woman,who lived on the other side of the Finuf's would tell all of the kids in the neighborhood that old man Howland was under her house making home brew, again. If you have any questions myself or my brother or sister might be able to help you . Sharon
