I am working on biographical articles on Guy Ramsey and SJ Simon, his wife Carmel, her sister Mollie, and Mollie's husband Niel Furse. I will post once these have been published. Of people have information that they's like to share with me, please do get in touch.  As with the Lives and Times articles, I have had full support from family members. Guy's son, and Skid and Carmel's nephews are helping me.
