I started reading your article about life in Unity Wisconsin during the 40’s. I think my mom lived there during that time! I see where you mentioned Tom Loughead a few times, I think he may have been my mom’s cousin. Her father was John Henry Loughead married to Olive Bertha Loughead and my mom was Olive Emagene Loughead and she had 5 sisters - Laurene/Gail, Iola, Eloise, Elva, Joan. Can you tell me anything more about her family and where they lived, or where I can find more information….? Mark S. Videka
