      "Discovered through the DNA testing of myself, my mother, and my sister that Ed was not her biological father, it was instead William John Earle. He lived in the same town and was married with children. We assume this contributed to the breakdown of Ed and Effie's marriage and the circumstances that led to my grandmother being raised by Cassie." (email by Jen K. Anderson her grand-daughter, Jun 2018)
