    Notes 
    • Notes from Beverly Atwood Blankenship, Maurice's neice - September 11, 2010: "Uncle Maurice was a very laid back man - not much upset him. Mother and Daddy (Vernon Atwood and Alma Zimmerlee) and Aunt Veda and Uncle Maurice used to travel a lot together. Uncle Maurice was so very special to me. When my Pa Pa (William Riley Atwood) was alive, I slept with him, and every night I would go to sleep listening to the pocket watch I showed you. When he passed Uncle Maurice being the oldest was given the watch. I got up in his lap and asked him if I could listen to the watch one more time. He took the watch out of his pocket and told me, it was mine. He was a wonderful man. He and my Dad both believed if you owed someone something you paid it - you paid your way. The other day Reba (Maurice's daughter) was out of toilet bowl cleaner - so I went down and got some and she wanted to pay for it, and I told her it did not cost any thing. She said, "but oh no my dad would want me to pay." I told her I thought he would understand about toilet bowl cleaner!"
