The above telegram was found in Hattie's Bible. It was dated 14 September 1952. Hattie died in 1951, so someone else was keeping things in her Bible, probably her daughter Adeline.
The following are mentioned in the telegram:
Mr. and Mrs L G McKee is Leonard and Adeline (Glover) (Tyson) McKie, (correct spelling) grandparents to Mark Victor Tyson.
Mark Victor is Mark Victor Tyson, the son of James Victor Tyson.
Mr. and Mrs. Jim Tyson is James Victor Tyson and wife, whom I haven't researched yet.
Jim Tyson-James Victor Tyson.
