Notes for Edward Wright Cowperthwaite:
I have written some about my father in law in other spots. I met him just one time in about 1949 when he, freda, and their daughter Ruth came for 6 months leave from his job in Africa. He had lost an arm in the mine in an accident in about 1947.When I met my husbands parents I was delighted to find I loved Freda and Ruth very much which is great as they lost Ed senior to heart attackin 1953 and they returned to the U.S.
They had one grand child in South Africa and so Aubrey and Gail returned with Freda and Ruth. They all stayed with us for awhile.I was always sorry my children missed knowing their grandfather Cowperthwaite.
