      1. This is my grandmother’s uncle, her father’s brother. We are from Greene County. I was told this guy was a mess for no reason lol. He just conned his way through life and didn’t want to put in the hard work. I think one of my grandmother’s brothers looked up to him and picked up on his ways.
