    The saying "its a small world" is alive and well!!

    Apparently tyrex13 has either a brother/son/relative that coached my wife when she ran track for Cook Inlet Academy. I also was asking about the daughter of said Bill Johnson, who tyrex13 didn't remember a married name and my wife correctly identified the daughter of Bill Johnson and her married name. I'm hoping to get in touch with her and see what she says.

    Looks like I have tracked down the daughter at least...for now...

      Well I called her.....wrong Connie...

      But she knew the Connie I was talking about and gave me the number to Bill Johnson's brother.

      Ratchet up the small world-ness.....

      My wife calls her Dad because she recognizes the name and sure enough, Bill Johnson's brother lives less than a mile from the in-laws. Calling in the morning for some hopefully (but fairly unlikely) good news...

        My grandpa helped coach some track there. By the sounds of it, my brother or I probably went to school with your wife.

          Indeed. Wonder if it was a super grade.

            Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.

              Keep us informed. This is a pretty neat story.

                Thanks!

                I have contacted the wife of Bill Johnson. She said that she did either sell/give away the rifles after his passing, but is asking her son, as he might know where they went. I think its a long shot....however, I did have a wonderful conversation with an elderly lady who knew my Grandfather and heard a few great stories...
