Jimmy was my mom’s cousin. He was born at his grandpa Albert and grandma Albertina’s farm 18 miles north of Watertown, right at the county line. His twin sister Joyce and older brother Johnny were part of the family who took care of their grandparents for several years. He was the last of his family of origin. I believe he has a niece Debra and a nephew Jalm living out of state.
