OK Here we go I only refer to the walk as I know it from when I was 14 yrs old! I'm the small boy that was helping Enos before he 'donated' it to the Walk I will try to clear up some things for you folks as you are clearing up things for me! Thanks for that! Harvey Bender is John Bender's father! Enos is Harvey's grandson and John's nephew! that answers Puddington! Harvey and John lived on the same parcel of land south of Kalona, and north of the English river about 1 mile(?) out of the city limits I spent many days helping there and just hanging out with a great family! As for JRS, I was young and not hooked into the regular workings of TLW in Washington! Looks like I didn't see a lot of things concerning JRS, although it makes sense to me, as I rarely saw him! Please be patient with me as I sort out events from long ago! So I am to assume JRS was into this cult business way back in 51? I was 14 when I last saw him at camp at lake darling in Iowa> i was 14 in 69! We watched all the cars driving by during Feast of Tabernacles one year I can't say what year! I was friends with the Fritz's and Simon Nisley I graduated HS with! Also, Arnolds to name a few! I am Tony Hartley I'm the kid that was always hanging out with Enos. He was a good friend. did this help any? Maybe ask me some things ?

As a footnote..I might suggest that there are many "hidden" things we all don't know about JRS. It is apparent to me, this is the case as I learn more about how the walk evolved! Thank you all for your patience as I muddle through this stuff

I'm so sorry for the mix up on knowing JRS I'm so sorry! I only remember him fro when I saw him in years between 65-69 just to be sure I'm in a time frame! I had no idea he was that much older! Please be patient with me! Has anyone seen Dorothy Bender Simmering lately? I hung out with her as well on the Bender farm (john and Harvey) she was John's daughter!~

It was the same time frame JRS & Martha had an open house for people to see their remodeled home.

I remember the Hartley family that lived in the yellow house on what is now Nutmeg Ave. We rode on the same school bus but I was a bit younger and didn't remember your first name. I'm one of Simon's many cousins lol

That was us for sure! I was the middle sibling always getting in trouble lol I wasn't aware Simon had cousins on our bus unless you might be a Coblentz? or maybe Daniel Nisly's child! The only other I can think of right of hand was the Bramhall's that lived in Richmond! Anyway, it isn't my intention to pry into people's private stuff! I just am trying to wrestle with all the memories about Richmond, and As people here can see, I get my timeframes messed up, it was a long time ago! Also, the things we have gone through tends to taint our memories after a few years go by! Thanks for responding! God Bless

CARe, That may have been before my time in TLWF, which began in the late 1960s. Multi-generational abuse. Not that surprising, really. : (
