Description: My dad was a railroader. My mom worked as a waitress in different cafés in town. I'm going to say about 1950 we moved to Texas. My dad got transferred to Texas, or else had to quit the railroad--so we moved to Texas. From Texas it was there for a while. Then Durango, Colorado. I finished school in Durango, went to college there about one year, and then joined the Army. Got out of the Army in 1961, and came back to Gallup, New Mexico, and got a job with a trader named Al Frick at Lupton, Arizona. At that time, my mom had remarried, and had married a trader by the name of Hugh Lee, who actually was a trader here in Ganado at one time, at Lee's Trading Post across town. I worked for Al Frick for about a year, and then quit that job, worked construction for about six months and then went to Keams Canyon for a short time, not even three or four months, and then went to Piñon for about eighteen years and worked for the McGee family--that'd be Bill and Cliff McGee.
