I am about five years late with this message, but here goes.I searched the Baltzell board as my grandfather was a half-brother to Bessie Mae Sexton Baltzell. Bessie helped raise Grandpa after his mother died. The only time I remember meeting Durward was at Grandpa's funeral in 1985.Durward and Grandpa (Albert Earl Sexton) were about the same age.Dad does have several old pictures of Durward that Grandpa had.
I have done a lot of research on the Sexton side and found much more than my dad thought was out there.I know your mother-in-law had done some of this research as well.I would be very interested in hearing from you IF this reaches you.
