      [Kevin Bandy 1999]

      Ammie Watson died at John and Ella Bess's home in McMinnville. Both, Ammie and Jimmy Hale, had become feeble. Ella Bess took Ammie to live in McMinnville with her family. My grandmother's mother, Lovie Hale Barrett, took Jimmy into her home here. Jimmy Hale smothered. He died in 1917 while WWI was going on. My great grandfather was fighting overseas in France when he died.

      My great grandmother, Lovie, wrote to my great grandfather, George Barrett, telling him that "Pa" had died. However, the army wouldn't let bad news go through to the soldiers, and my great grandfather didn't learn of his father-in-law's passing until he returned home. My grandmother said that her older sister, Emma Jean Barrett Hayes, was just a baby and played on the bed with Jimmy Hale. He was unable to get around then. As he was dying, my great grandmother, Lovie, would ask if she could do anything for him. He could only manage to say "oh, breath".

      Ammie Watson lived some 8 or 10 years after Jimmy Hale passed. She lived all those years with the Bess family in McMinnville. My grandmother was born in 1923 and she said that she was old enough that she can remember when the Bess family came to tell her mother that Ammie Watson had died. My grandmother said that all of her family had the flu including Lovie. And none of the family got to attend the funeral or burial. Her mother (Lovie) always regretted not having the opportunity to say goodbye to her mother. But in those days when you had the flu, you stayed at home. The flu was a real killer in those days. [9]
