This is the story of Leon Nelson Harris, Sylvia's father. Leon was born September 7 or 8, 1917 in the family home south of St Johns, Michigan. The date is uncertain, because the time is uncertain — was he born before or after midnight? We don’t know. In the rush and excitement, nobody thought to look at the clock.

Elouise suffered a stroke in 2001 and passed away. At 94 years of age, Dad still lives alone in the house his father-in-law built. It is just around the corner from where he was born. We are glad that he is still with us and is active in church and family activities.
