Preface and Introduction:
This Journal Record of Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr., represents the reconstruction,
online, of records and correspondence had in my possession, of two former data
Journal Records, as well as over 20,000 letters of correspondence, documented
resources, (including family Bible Records [some going back over 200 years],
personal picture collections, family compiled group sheets, family mementoes
and memorials, as well as professional genealogical research materials), that
were physically removed, and access destroyed, from my home residences,
where I once resided, in the past, in Orem, Utah and West Jordan, Utah.

When I first associated with the Foxon family, in Provo, Utah, I undertook
the task of doing all of their family genealogies, both father and mother,
and provided them with a large Book of Remembrance, which I added thereto,
over the years. I do not believe they comprehended the Spirit of Elijah, or true,
eternal family life, demanding that I cease doing family history work, to remain
as part of their family. As I continued, every effort was made by them, to destroy
my character and reputation. When I connected, later on, into the Barrett family,
I was involved in genealogical and family history research professionally,
becoming established as a self-employed consultant. Nevertheless, I was
hindered at every turn, including being denied an accredited genealogist
credential, by the Family History Library, even though having been told, I
had obtained the highest score ever gotten in LDS research, on the tests I
took at the Family History Library. My attempt to engage full time, in doing
research, became the "last straw", and again, my character, reputation
and records were lost. A full page BYU student newspaper publication
of my business, was also disparaged, through staff at the BYU regional library,
even though my credentials were listed in Who's Who in Genealogy & Heraldry.

Furthermore, my 2nd father-in-law, attempted from the beginning of my second
marriage, to destroy it, even to the point of "losing accidently", all of my Temple
Sealing photographs to his daughter. Nevertheless, he had been a professional
photographer in the U.S. military, while stationed in Japan, during World War II.
He constantly encouraged my wife to divorce me, because I was not good enough,
in his eyes, and took my children away from me to a retreat used by BYU, so that
they would not be influenced by my presence, during final divorce proceedings.
He superficially supported me because he did not want to lose his own daughter.
When I began to publish, from the authorized access I had to Special Collections,
in the Family History Library primary sources, concerning Joseph Smith, Jr., re:
The Royal Family of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., I was called in by a secretary
of The First Presidency, of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; being
severely castigated by him, telling me to cease and desist. He also stated, in his
opinion, that I was "the last person in the world" he would want to have to publish it.
However, my manuscript had already been copyrighted at the Library of Congress; I
could not take it back from public knowledge, which clearly,  greatly distressed him.
I compiled the record meticulously, out of gratitude for the life of Joseph Smith, Jr.

I, Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr. was previously listed in Wikipedia, but my opinions
were not appreciated, and: [I can tell you for a fact that Tinney is non-notable
in his field (genealogy), but of course, that's just original research. A Google
search produces absolutely nothing written about him, just promotional material
and message board posts. But I don't think his biography is particularly "specialist"
material. It was written in a pretty quirky way, which made it hard to discern
exactly what was meant, so I may have thrown some of the baby out
with the bathwater. So I'd be happy if anyone other than Tinney had a look at it.
If no one does, then I guess he's non-notable.] Social Networks & Archival Context

1. Thomas Milton Tinney, Michael H. Chandler and the Pearl of Great Price
(Part I, II, and III, Salt Lake City 1975, 1976). Thomas Tinney was the researcher
who located Michael H. Chandler in the State of Ohio and pieced together
much of his life's story through excellent and meticulous genealogical research.

I received the following recommendation, given to me, dated: 10 Oct 1971,
under the signature of J. Grant Stevenson, Stevenson's Genealogical Center,
230 West 1230 North, Provo, Utah 84601. To Whom It May Concern:
I am very pleased to recommend Thomas Milton Tinney, who has been in my
employ as a genealogical researcher from 6 May 1971 to 29 October 1971.
I have found Thomas to be very personable and extremely quick in learning
new assignments and a very hard worker. In my experience of 20 years
of research, I have never had anyone whom I would consider superior to him
in capabilities of handling research projects, filing, analysis, and other related
activities. If he ever comes back to Utah, I have indicated that a job would
always be open to him. The Genealogical Journal, published quarterly,
by the Utah Genealogical Association, which is indexed in the Genealogical
Periodical Annual Index, Volume 15, Fall 1986, Number 3, contains, beginning
on page 128, Michael H. Chandler and the Pearl of Great Price: 1986 Update,
by Thomas Milton Tinney. Later published by The Ohio Genealogical Society,
in the Report, Volume XXVII, Fall 1987, Number 3, beginning on page 132.
I have been peer reviewed.  [J. Grant Stevenson, BYU professor of Genealogy;
he was detail-oriented. "
The ninth annual genealogy clinic will be conducted
Aug. 7-12 at Brigham Young University for persons interested in acquiring
proficiency in genealogical work. Although the clinic is being presented
in harmony with, the Genealogical Society of the LDS Church, it is not Church
sponsored. It is being offered by the College of Religious Instruction and the
Office of Special Courses and Conferences. The clinic, which will be directed
by J. Grant Stevenson, will meet daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The director has
had 20 years of genealogical experience in various Church positions and has
done special research in England, Denmark, and the United States. He has been
an instructor in genealogy. at BYU since 1954, and is the author of several
genealogy books." The Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, Friday, April 21, 1967, page 34.
Retired Faculty and Staff | Religious Education: J. Grant Stevenson, 1964-1990.]


The Family History Library of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
the essential genealogical arm used to promote LDS Temple Ordinance Work,
is a library "staffed by expert research consultants and volunteers who can help
beginners get started". I was always short on time, and used side stairs between
floors, to run up and down through various buildings, to keep in good shape,
while doing family genealogy and history research. I was constantly asking
questions of various staff members, over the years, with volunteer to expert
experience, and this stressed them out. So, if someone didn't know an answer,
they would just refer me to another floor, and I was getting constant runarounds.
From a history standpoint, I had another difficulty:
Genealogical Society of Utah's
library and collections were continuously relocated and updated. My very first
experience began at 80 N. Main Street (1934–1962)
; then on to 100 S. Main Street
(1962–1971)
; then, in the LDS Church Office Building, at 50 E. North Temple Street
(1972–1985)
; and finally, to 35 N. West Temple Street (1985–Present). To resolve
these issues, I finally decided to take matters into my own hands, and just went
through every library system, from top to basement floors, and walked between
every shelf and collection area, and I simply physically memorized where
everything was, including going into all of the staff working areas,
with permission, to obtain all of their individual insights on collection strengths;
especially the Medieval Section, and Special Collections; did same procedure
within the Church History Library, and the Church History Museums.

And this is how I became a professional genealogy research specialist, by both
hands on experience, being self taught, along with courses, as over years of time,
I would rememorize location sites, as additional collections were added, materials
relocated, or machine services were upgraded. I can still remember when I had
to fill out slips and obtain books over the counter; copies made of data in them,
by my own hand, etc. This habit carried over into all other research facilities that
I have used, from the great Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the New York
City Public Library, facilities in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Houston, Texas. In fact,
I have visited and driven through, personally, every state in the continental U.S.,
so that I would have visual and mental acuity, of all archive and library sites,
as well as studying the lay of the land, the manners of various culture groups,
and the internal workings of Federal, State, and various local associations.
In particular, in the State of California, I joined the
UC Davis Cal Aggie
Alumni Association, and became a Lifetime Sustaining Member, so that
I could use my Library Card, for In-person access and borrowing privileges
at all 10 University of California Libraries, including UC Davis' four libraries.
I also personally visited and did research at regional book storage facilities.
State - National Budgets: Professional Researchers - Record Credibility

Unfortunately, at the same time, aggressive efforts were constantly being
directed at me and my family, to break up my marriage and family relations,
(even though I attended regularly, health permitting, years of Church meetings),
stemming from concerted efforts coming from the State of Utah. [As an example:
I went to Southern California, to visit Leo Engel, a Jewish friend, I lived with once,
(his family suffered during the
Holocaust), living in San Diego, California area.
When I returned home, my house was empty and bare, and my wife and children
had been taken by the Elders Quorum, without my permission, across state lines,
and not even being informed by my wife, and my family and furniture all moved
back to Utah, to the home of her parents. I talked with her over the phone; then,
drove to Utah, and had to, by myself, repack & drive a moving truck home. Almost
died from the excessive stress, chest pains, and irregular heart beat.] I was unable
to perpetuate or create a viable business, even though I spent over three years
completely studying the Library of Congress system, via the UCD
Shields Library,
as my limited health permitted.
Melvyl® System - University of California
UCD: Genealogy, Family and Local History Research I have had my research
papers surreptitiously removed from local genealogy organization collections.


I have been deleted from numerous message boards; also libeled and slandered,
both by prominent members and copycat non-members, of the LDS (Mormon) faith.
I have been grievously detained and mistreated in the household of my friends,
and have experienced exceedingly cruel and inhumane treatment, such as being
beaten from behind, without any defense or warning, with a metal instrument,
on the back of my head, so I would be permanently physically disabled, (which
I am); as well as being hit on my ears, both sides of my face, that I would become
deaf and lose physical balance control; being beaten on my face in front, so that
my nose was broken, (and covering my eyes with my hands so that I would not
be blinded, as my hands were being mangled, so that I could not write or type);
and then, being falsely accused by the perpetrators, while slipping into a state
of unconsciousness, and bleeding on the
veranda, near the back door entrance
to the University of Utah
Marriott Library, on a Sunday, while attempting to do
family history research; to be productive, and make the best use of my time.
I have been denied basic American rights to human dignity, such as being
denied the right to file a writ of habeas corpus, or obtain proper trial by jury.
I have had my wives and family terrorized within my own homes and domicile.
I have deliberately been administered food and drink that was contaminated
with non-prescription medications, with the intent to augment a lethal effect.

My 26 standards I attempt to follow, for my personal character development. are:
(1) In religious affairs, the 13 Articles of Faith, by the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr.,
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - compare [D & C 121: 41-46].
(2) In civil matters, the 13 Virtues, by American Founding Father Benjamin Franklin.
Temple Work for the Founding Fathers  President Wilford Woodruff stated:
"I am going to bear my testimony to this assembly, if I never do it again in my life,
that those men who laid the foundation of this American government and signed
the Declaration of Independence were the best spirits the God of heaven could find
on the face of the earth. "
==========
I believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son,
Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost.
I believe that men will be punished for their own sins,
and not for Adam’s transgression.
I believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved,
by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel.
I believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentance; third, Baptism by immersion
for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.
I believe that a man must be called of God, by prophecy, and by the laying
on of hands by those who are in authority, to preach the Gospel
and administer in the ordinances thereof.
I believe in the same organization that existed in the Primitive Church,
namely, apostles, prophets, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and so forth.

I believe
in the gift of tongues, prophecy, revelation, visions, healing,
interpretation of tongues, and so forth

I believe
the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly;
I also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.

I believe
all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, & I believe that He
will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.

I believe
in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes;
that Zion (the New Jerusalem) will be built upon the American continent;
that Christ will reign personally upon the earth; and, that the earth
will be renewed and receive its paradisiacal glory.

I claim
the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates
of my own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege,
let them worship how, where, or what they may.

I believe
in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates,
in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.

I believe
in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good
to all men; indeed, I may say that I follow the admonition of Paul---------I believe
all things, I hope all things, I have endured many things, and hope to be able
to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report
or praiseworthy, I seek after these things.
==========
Temperance. Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation. [Word of Wisdom]
Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself;
avoid trifling conversation.
Order. Let all your things have their places;
let each part of your business have its time.
Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought;
perform without fail what you resolve.
Frugality. Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself;
i.e., waste nothing.
Industry. Lose no time; be always employ'd in something useful;
cut off all unnecessary actions.
Sincerity. Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly,
and, if you speak, speak accordingly.
Justice. Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
Moderation. Avoid extremes;
forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
Cleanliness. Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation.
Tranqulility. Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
Chastity. Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness,
weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation. [Hosea]
[Research Note: The Ministry of Hosea: A Call to Faithfulness (Hosea)
This defective LDS student manual misses the mark, as the command of God,
which Hosea received directly from Jehovah, Hosea did obey; which sacrifice
gave to him, the right to have his calling and election made sure and sealed.
"if a man would attain-- he must sacrifice all to attain to the keys of the kingdom
of an endless life" . . . "For any person to have the fullness of that priesthood,
he must be a king and priest" . . . "As high and important to the Church
as the offices of prophet, apostle and patriarch are, nevertheless, these
highest ecclesiastical ordinations do not confer the authority of Elijah,
the sealing power of the priesthood, or the power of a king and priest" . . .
Reference: 27 August 1843 (Sunday Morning). Our United States of America
Founding Fathers worthily received eternal lives.]
Humility. Imitate Jesus and Socrates (in his pursuit of virtue).

This is an incomplete record, since from about the age of 15, I had kept
an exacting Journal Record of all of my affairs. This record presents historical
perspective, through connections with the beginning years of administration,
for leaders of State Government, the Federal Government of the United States
of America, and the Presidents of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

[SCHOOL OF LIFE: OBTAINING A PhD AS A STRONG FEMALE WOMAN
There is an excellent article (CBS Moneywatch), written by Lynn O'Shaughnessy,
dated July 10, 2012, 9:26 AM, entitled: "12 reasons not to get a PhD". CBS News
Lynn O'Shaughnessy website: The College Solution, and is a best-selling author,
consultant and speaker on issues that parents with college-bound teenagers face.
1. A PhD takes twice as long as a bachelor's degree to complete. The average
student takes 8.2 years to slog through a PhD program and is 33 years old before
earning that top diploma. By that age, most Americans with mere bachelor's
degree are well into establishing themselves professionally.
2. Professors will exploit you. It takes forever to earn a doctorate degree
because graduate students are routinely treated like slaves. Grad students
perform the grunt work that professors find distasteful, such as teaching
undergraduates, grading papers, holding office hours, and playing
mother hen to undergrads.

The voice of Jesus Christ stated: O ye house of Israel whom I have spared,
how oft will I gather you as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings,
if ye will repent and return unto me with full purpose of heart. 3 Nephi 10: 6
This is farm language. Christ's beautiful metaphor of the hen relates to
a "hen's selfless devotion to its chicks. . . . a chicken is almost defenseless,
yet it will never abandon its offspring when danger arises. It also is an active
mother and will gather its offspring together to protect them. If necessary
it will shield its little chicks with its own body — offering itself to preserve
their lives." . . . "chicks . . . obey instinct . . . come . . . without hesitation,
without delay and without question run to the safety . . . found underneath
their mother's wings" The love of Jesus Christ is emphasized: Chicks and Hens.
Nevertheless, Christ said: [
Conference Report] O Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee,
how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen
gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Behold, your house is left unto you desolate (Matt. 23:37-38).

In the Charles Tinney Obituary, Paradise, UT, it says: " Dr. Tinney earned
BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Brigham Young University;
a PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Utah; BS, MS, and PhD
degrees in physics and physics education from Utah State University. While these
degrees were a part of his education, learning and teaching were his life".
I wish to compare his education with that of his grandmother Nettie,
who earned a PhD degree, in the School of Life.

A strong female woman in my pedigree, was Addie Arnettie "Nettie" (Hardin) Tinney.
Joseph Tinney & Addie Arnettie "Nettie" Hardin, daughter of [Hardin Family Gallery]
Harvey Newton Hardin.
Joseph Tinney, born 26 Dec 1868, Berry, Harrison, Kentucky;
(
1910 Census - age 48, born Ky.); died 11 Feb 1940, Warren County, Ohio;
born
Miami Cemetery Corwin, Warren County, Ohio;
[Warren County, Ohio Obituary Index: Tinney, Joseph; 1940:23]
married 18 Feb 1892, Harrison County, Kentucky, as his only wife:
Addie Arnettie "Nettie" Hardin, born 23 Aug 1871, Harrison County, Kentucky;
(
1910 Census - age 37, b. Ky.); died 09 Jan 1950, Warren County, Ohio;
lists father as: Newton Hardin; mother: Arenda Green.
[Warren County, Ohio Obituary Index: Tinney, Nettie; 1950:44]

A letter from Joseph Tinney to his mother is preserved, written 29 Nov 1909.
Joseph states: "take care of yourself and write to me hope you are well how
is all the folks Nettie sends you the babies pictures     goodby your son Joe Tinney."

Chuck's sweet grandmother, when he was born and growing,
was village of Corwin
Correspondent for
The Miami Gazette, in Wayne Township, by Waynesville, Ohio.
Chuck was born on 11 Jan 1940, in Wayne Township, RR#2, near Waynesville, Ohio.
As can be seen by the following notices, Nettie loved the people of Corwin, Ohio;
she cared; showed hospitable charity for strangers, family and friends, far and near.
She is a disciple of Jesus Christ and endured all manner of tribulations, to the end.
The record shows, Addie Arnettie "Nettie" (Hardin) Tinney, did bear her own cross,
and was always willing to lay down her life for the cause of Jesus Christ.
Her sacrifice of a broken heart and a contrite spirit has earned her a true PhD,
in the heavenly archives; God's Highest Degree of Glory in the Celestial Kingdom.

TIME PERIOD: 1901-1910 (55) [Research Note: The Miami Gazette computerized
indexing project is wonderful, in that it was accomplished. Nevertheless, it can
not be considered exhaustive. The records themselves, as printed, are highly
irregular, to say the least, and do not catch all of the entries on many pages;
there are many sections of the newspaper that are missing; a surname search
was only made on the Tinney Surname; other family surnames were picked up
only on those pages reviewed for the Tinney references, and were defective.
Everything was reviewed by a process of speed reading, of all page sections;
estimated dates were frequently made on pages with no title designations,
by evaluating the internal content that presented past, or future event dating.]

Waynesville, Ohio, December 28, 1910 - Obituary and Memoir
The funeral of Miss Mayme Tinney was held at Mortuary Chapel at 2 P. M.,
Monday afternoon and was attended by many friends. Rev. Bailey spoke
on the occasion and his remarks were well chosen. A quartette composed
of the following persons Mrs. Rhoades, Mrs. Hawke, Dr. Ellis, Mr. W. O. Raper
and Mrs. Bruner as organist, sang appropriate music.
The following obituary was read:
Mayme Tinney, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Tinney,
was born in Harrison County, Kentucky, December 28, 1896.
She died December 16, 1910. She leaves to mourn her loss a mother, father,
five brothers and one sister. She was a loving and obedient daughter,
of a very happy disposition. She willingly and cheerfully assumed her share
of duties of the home life. She was a very affectionate sister. During her last
illness and intense sufferidg (sic) that same patient, cheerful and self-sacrificing
spirit remained with her to the last. She assumed the same attitude toward
her school work as she did in her home. She was loved by both teachers
and pupils. - Memoir - It is sorrowful indeed, approaching this season of joy
and festivities, to even hear of a death in the distance. But when our
schoolmate and pupil is taken away forever from our presence we stand
in sad reflection. We can not realize that she has left us never to return.
Her attendance in school was most regular, having been absent but six days
during the term until her last illness which extended scarcely over one week.
Truly has the poet described our sorrow: "There is a Reaper whose name
is Death. And, with his sickle keen, He reaps the bearded grain at a breath,
And the flowers that grow between. . . ." [Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
The Reaper and the Flowers, Voices of the Night] Well may we compare
Mayme's life [Nettie lost Mayme Clerinda Tinney] to a flower--always pleasant
and agreeable, yet firm and unchanging in her convictions. Like the flowers
she loved outdoor life. We shall miss her much from the playground for she
always took a leading part and greatly enjoyed all kinds of out door games.
Although her playing was vigorous and active yet she was always careful
of her clothing and appearance. Her work always showed neatness and her
desk remains today as she left it in excellent order. Her pleasant greetings
of "Good Morning" and "Good Evening" will long be remembered. We may
console ourselves however in knowing that she has been taken far away
from the troubles, trials and temptations of this life which always increase
as we grow older. Her Last Teacher.  Card of Thanks

Waynesville, Ohio, Wednesday, May 27, 1925
(The following is a letter written by Mr. Prentice Tinney to his mother,
dated May 5, 1925, on board U.S. S. New Mexico)
Owing to the unavoidable accident which caused us to prolong our stay
in the navy yard, we have missed the largest war problem of modern time.
Consequently, our cruise between Seattle and Honolulu was void of all maneuvers
of war. We are now anchored off "Diamond Head," about 2 miles from the city
of Honolulu. The city is situated at the foot of a long chain of mountain ranges,
in the form of a half circle. The natives tell us that at one time most of the mountain
chains remaining around Honolulu were active volcanoes. In view of this fact,
there is one that stands alone from the rest, being especially noticeable apart
from the group. It is formed in the shape of a perfect bowl, and is called
"The Punch Bowl". Around the base we found fossil remains and hardened lava
formation, which has remained there for hundreds of years. After a thorough
examination of the base we scaled the sides up to the rim, where we were able
to gaze down into the crater for hundreds of feet. Although it still looks dangerous,
the natives say that it is inactive and have long given it up as dead.
Visit "Punch Bowl"
After leaving the rim our party assembled in our waiting bus and directed the driver
to drive us to the top of the peak. Whereupon he protested and said that it would be
impossible to go all the way up. He then explained that the wind blew so fierce at
the top that it . . . be impossible to drive a car . . that height. We did not believe him
at the time, but everyone is convinced now that he was right. After getting within
500 feet of the top, it was necessary to walk up the mountain side aided by a wire
cable. After climbing to the top we were stopped by the guide where the mountain
seemed to drop off. He cautioned us about watching our step, and we cautiously
tiptoed over to the side and peered down through five thousand feet of space.
Here the greatest battle fought on the island took place. Here, the natives tell us,
is the exact spot where a powerful king from the island farther south came and
drove two thousand black soldiers over the precipice to their death below.
At Times I thought that I could see skulls, but as I had listened to the story
before hand, I was inclined to think it was my imagination. From this position
the city of Honolulu looks small, indeed, and even the combined fleets
of the United States appear as minute particles.
"Waikiki Beach"
After picking our way back to the car we motored down the mountain side, down
into the city. Here we dismissed the driver and went over and visited the aquarium,
where they have the most unique collection of fishes of any place in the world.
In the afternoon we strolled out to the "Waikiki Beach," that is so internationally
famous with the tourists. Its composition makes it a beach, in a class all of its own.
The bed is made up of white coral; the waters are of a dark blue and the surfs
are better than any other place in the world. A row of vining trees along the water
front affords an excellent protection from the boiling sun and the Moana hotel
directly on the water front is ultra-modern, and considered one of the best.
Many of the tourists can be seen during the daytime out in the surf trying to get
the knack of the thing, and you can just look at the natives away out in the heaviest
of the surf with apparently no ill concern. For a beginner on a surf board it is a good
motto to expect the bumps then you will not be disappointed. As for mine, if I had
the choice, I would rather ride a wild mule. All the palm trees and bwana trees
and practically all vegetation that lines the streets, are green the year around.
The people are very sensitive as to the appearance of their homes. Most of their
houses are painted to match, even including the roofing, which is painted green.
The street cars here have no doors or windows. Just get on anywhere. If the cars
are crowded (they certainly are now) and you are financially embarrassed,
just look innocent when the conductor comes around.
Grass Dresses
In the United States there is much comment on the girls wearing grass dresses
in this country. The extent of my vision have found but few who indulge in that
pastime, unless they are professional dancers of the hula hula. A group of maids
of the sunburnt variety, came aboard tonight and rendered several song and dance
numbers, which made a big hit with the gang. One who was apparently looking
for fame, volunteered to give us an exhibition of the "hula hula," and she certainly
could shake. We have agreed that she knows her "oats" and is deserving of praise.
So much for Honolulu. Thursday we leave Honolulu for an extensive aircraft
maneuver with the combined fleet, and when we anchor again it will be
at Lahainia Roads, about 100 miles from here. It is planned and according
to information at hand we will complete anti-aircraft battle practice,
prior to our sailing for Sydney, Australia. Approximately 10.000 men
are taking part in these maneuvers, excluding newspaper reporters, senators, etc.

. . . We are lying right close to a beautiful mountain with big valleys in between.
There are sugar plantations at the base, and for several hundreds of feet up the
lower slopes, where the nature of the soil permits. All through the day clouds
are hovering near and over the peaks of this mountain. At night it presents a sight
that is printed on one's mind, as the beautiful Hawaiian moon, is seen rising
as though right out of the valley between the mountains and the beautiful blue
waters sparkling as so many diamonds, as it casts its rays down over the hillside.
During the two days of maneuvering enroute to this island, we successfully
evaded the Destroyer attacks and technically captured this island and destroyed
all fortifications, and killed or took prisoners all of the opposing forces, so now
we are lying at anchor until the eighteenth inst.

Waynesville, Ohio, Wednesday, July 1, 1925 - Description of Uncle Sam's Fleet
in the Pacific as Told by a Former Waynesville Boy - U S S West Virginia,
Honolulu, T. H., May 29, 1925  Dear Mother --
After a month of alternating at anchor and then underway for technical battles
off the coast of Lahaina Roads, near the island of Maui, we are again back in
Pearl harbor, anchored off the famous Diamond Head. During the past few
weeks we have been engaged in one of the most difficult war problems that
has ever been attempted. The main body, comprising the battle fleet, which
is all the battleships and their auxiliaries, destroyer squadrons, air squadrons,
cruiser divisions, and submarine divisions, approximately one hundred and
eighty vessels, took part in these maneuvers. The most spectacular of all was
the war between the "Green and white" fleets. The "white" fleet was made
up of destroyer divisions and cruisers, the speediest vessels of the fleet.
The "greens" were the battleships, with their airplane tenders. The "white"
fleet had fallen out of our formation and had, due to their excessive speed
in comparison to ours, disappeared over the horizon, and were to attack
us when the opportunity permitted, so as to get the best results. At about
11 o'clock the first cruiser was sighted bearing down on us from the port side.
We immediately went to our battle stations and prepared as though it were
actual battle. Immediately in the wake of this cruiser could now be discerned
several divisions of destroyers. The cruiser had large volumes of black smoke
pouring from her funnels and the destroyers were soon following her in laying
a huge smoke screen. They kept their distance and proceeded in an easterly
course, leaving a mountain smoke screen that was non-penetrable with the eye.
This picture looked like a huge jungle. Soon afterward destroyers were hid
behind the screen and from that position proceeded to launch torpedoes
at the battleships, which had catapulted their planes to ward off the destroyer
attack. We successfully evaded them all until--one was seen bearing down
on our port beam. The admiral shifted course to miss it but, just as we shifted
our course, the torpedo changed its course accordingly, and hit us amidships.
A torpedo of this type during the war would seem very useful, but its course
was not natural, probably due to damaged propeller on the torpedo, caused
when it was launched from the destroyers. This battle is believed will bring
out the urgent need of more scout cruisers and aircraft to work in conjunction
with the battle fleet. With the exception of aircraft exercises, which are not
included in the major maneuvers, the battle fleets tactics of war are over.
From now until our return to San Pedro, in September, most of the time
will be devoted to machinery overhaul, recreation, liberty and travel.
From here we go to Hilo, for a few days, then we return to Honolulu.
On or about the first of July the fleet sails for New Zealand, then to Australia.
In August we return to this port, then for the stretch back to California.
I was never so tanned as I am now. But I hope to be recognized behind
this camouflage when I return to the United States. Enjoying myself
immensely and feeling fine, trying to get the best out of this Hawaiian
atmosphere. Have had no occasion to see what effect these Hawaiian
moonlight nights have on a person, for liberty at night is not permitted,
for there are so many men in the fleet that accommodations for overnight
liberty could not be found. Besides, I think that it would take a little more
than moonlight to make one of those black babies adorable.
Of course, they are not all black. With love to all, "Aloha"
PRENTICE TINNEY [Father of Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.]

(estimated date: September 1925) - Interesting Letter From Honolulu
The following is a letter written by Prentice Tinney, to his mother:
Enroute Apia to Honolulu  September 6, 1925 Dear Mother --
Just crossed the equator yesterday now three days out of Honolulu.
After a stay of nine days there, we will "Aloha" to the Southern islands
and intend to arrive in the vicinity of the United States about September 26.
The islands we have just visited is very vague in the minds of many, so while
memories are still fresh in my mind, I will endeavor to give you a picture
of that obscure land. Approximately 70 miles from American Samoa,
lies the island of British Samoa, on which is the largest city of the Samoan
group, Apia, formerly a German settlement. It has been taken over
by the British government during recent years, and is now under British rule,
with New Zealand, designated by England to act as a protection and regulate
and enforce laws. As all tropical islands it is densely covered with vegetation,
palm, banana, bwana trees, with ferns of different varieties and color
intermingled, which make it appear as one solid mass of impenetrable green.
Looking shoreward from the anchorage little knowledge of the size of the city
can be had--just something white here and there where the foliage is so dense,
on a clear day. Apia is located at the base of a large hill down near the water
front, laid out with modern plans and most of the buildings in city proper,
the latest designs of architecture. This applies only to the city. When we near
the outskirts of the village, plain huts of tree bark covered by galvanized
roofing are very much in evidence. Directly up from the city (about six miles),
on an isolated knoll, stands a tomb in memory of one of the world's greatest
writers--
Robert Louis Stevenson. Seems rather odd that a man so prominent
should want to be buried here. There are approximately 10,000 people in Apia,
mostly natives. They are all very husky people. Their foods consist chiefly
of cocoanuts, bananas and other fruit and vegetables that grow on the island
and some canned goods imported from New Zealand. Main exports are products
obtained from the cocoanut, namely; copra, cocoanut oil and the dried cocoanut.
They also obtain an oil for medicinal purposes from the eucalyptus tree. Men are
tall, most stand six feet, have reddish hair which is brunette around the temples
where the sun does not strike often. Characteristic of this hair is the fact that they
train it straight up. The majority of the men have the lower half of their bodies
completely covered with tattoos, probably to scare reptiles away. The women
folk are shorter, in stature than the men, much more amiable and better looking,
and a shade darker, with large black eyes and hair, and beautiful white teeth.
One noticeable drawback to their appearance is the fact that they all have large
flat feet, caused from going barefoot. Regardless of male or female for dress,
they wear a skirt. One man said, "All they wear are mattress covers." A few
of the most aristocratic who have had schooling in other countries, dress as
we do. Missionaries have played a large part in bringing about the condition
that now exists, on the island. They are the natives' best friend, and they can
be seen promenading the street together at all times. Catholic schools are
numerous. Very few now, who do not receive some schooling. The Colorado,
our sister ship, and we were detained for that port, and I certainly was pleased
to see how much the natives were thrilled and appreciated the opportunity
to come aboard and see the ship. Every one was ever willing to show them
around and explain anything that was doubtful to them. Some of the bolder
maidens came forward and danced with us. We left with the impression that
we left an excellent memory of Americans and I am sure as an individual,
have gained much in knowledge of that remote land. So much for Samoa.
As they all say now, "it won't be long now." Excepting a few who lost their
hearts in Australia and New Zealand, all are anticipating our arrival
in Old San Pedro, where we get our car for Long Beach.

[RESEARCH PROBLEM: My mother Hazel states "I remember the exact date
I met him was 2 Dec 1927, because it was my mother's birthday. I was not living
at home at the time. We got married 3 1/4 months later, when we eloped and
went to Kentucky to get married." [We didn't tell anyone at first that we were
married, and never in my married life did I get or give a ring. Questionable?]
(This marriage occurred on the 14 Mar 1928 at Newport, Campbell, Kentucky.)
Who is the Mrs. Tinney, noted as Sunday guest of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Tinney,
dated Waynesville, Ohio, Wednesday, November 3, 1926 - Society?
At this point in the research process, it suggests a
Bigamy relationship, further
indicating that the constant movements of the family, to various home sites,
was to escape detection between different partner (s) and social connections,
as well as disconnect family from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The problem is finding out if this is a newspaper glitch versus unknown marriage.

"Corwin, Ohio, made national history in 1930 when it had an all-woman
government. The men of the village of 236 refused to tackle the administration,
so the women ran for the offices. In the 1930 photograph are, from left to right,
(first row) Councilwoman Amanda Norton and Mayor Julia Van Oflen;
(second row) Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, Treasurer Dora Stiles,
and Councilwoman Laura Werntz. (Courtesy of Mary L. Cook Public Library.)
[Research Note: Meanwhile, back at the ranch, it was like father, like son, like
mother, like daughter. Councilwoman Laura Werntz was the oldest surviving sister
of Prentice Thomas Tinney, (the father of Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.); full name
being Lura Deen Tinney, born 23 Oct 1894, in Berry, Harrison, Kentucky, who had
married Robert Newton Werntz 14 May 1914, in Warren County, Ohio. Secondly,
Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, is the wife
Ethel Scott, of Lon, or Alonzo Beckett.
[Correction: The
Xenia Daily Gazette, Xenia, Ohio, Thursday, December 31, 1936,
page 10, notes: Mr. and Mrs. Carman Crane and son. joined a family gathering
Christmas eve at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Watkins,
with a family dinner. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Lon Beckett,
Mr. and Mrs. Earl Holland, Miss Dora Stiles, all of Corwin, Mr. and Mrs. R. Conner,
of New Burlington. Lon Beckett is abbreviated form for the name, Alonzo Beckett,
who married
12 Feb 1908 Ethel Scott; both were not previously married. Alonzo
was the son of William Beckett and Mary Whalen. Alonso Beckett, is found
as a white male, aged 8 in the 1880 Census, grandson to William Beckett, age 66,
born 1814, in Kentucky, and his wife Margaret 70 born 1810, in Virginia. Residing
in the family is William Beckett, son, constable, age 35, born 1845 in Kentucky.
Alonzo Beckett is 35 years of age on the 27 day of July 1908, or born 27 July 1873.
Ethel Scott, is 25 years of age on the 2nd day of January 1908, born 2 Jan 1883,
the daughter of Harmen Scott and Susan Roberts. The 1920 Census shows
Alonzo Beckett (1873-1953) & Ethel (Scott) Beckett (1883-1958), had two children,
Vashti  A Beckett and Emogene D Beckett age 10 and 9 respectively. Vashti
(Beckett) Conner is buried in the Miami Cemetery, Warren County, Ohio.

Ethel Cornelia (Roberts) Beckett (1901 - 1979),
born 07 Mar 1901, Franklin County, Indiana; died 13 Mar 1979; daughter of
Edwin Roberts and Anna Lacy. At the same time Charles David Beckett is shown
to be residing in the (
1930 Census), in Hamilton, Butler, Ohio, Lon Beckett, aka
Alonzo Beckett, is listed in the
(1930 Census)  of Corwin, Warren County, Ohio,
along with his wife Ethel (Scott), on same page as Frank E. and Julia VanOflen
family, Fred and Mary Lawson family, William H. and Amanda Norton family,
and the Joseph and Nettie Tinney family. On the next page, is the William
and Lizzie B. Lawson family, as well as the Robert and Lura Werntz family.

The Miami Gazette shows: Waynesville, Ohio, Wednesday, December 18, 1929
- Local Happenings - . . . Mr. and Mrs. Joe Tinney entertained at dinner Monday,
Mrs. Rachel Crew, Mrs. L. Wardlow and Mr. Frank Crew. Afternoon callers were
Mrs. Norton, Mrs. Truax Mrs. L. Werntz, and Mrs. Lon Beckett. With additional
finding in the Xenia Daily Gazette, in 1936, that "The guests were Mr. and Mrs.
Lon Beckett, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Holland. Miss Dora Stiles, all of Corwin",
the conclusion is drawn, that Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, in the photograph,
is actually the wife
Ethel Scott, of Lon, or Alonzo Beckett, and not that of said
Ethel Cornelia Roberts, wife of Charles David Beckett.
Alonzo Beckett was born
in Harrison County, Kentucky, and had social affiliations with the Joseph Tinney
and Nettie (Hardin) Tinney family, but no actual biological relationship, or any
intermarriage has presently been determined to exist.
William Beckett, Jr.,
(married Mary Jane Whalen in Harrison, Kentucky, on August 22, 1871);
in 1910 Census of Wayne Township, Warren County, Ohio, age 57, widowed,
in household of son Lon / Alonzo Beckett family.] Now, continuing forward,
according to the Wilmington News-Journal, Wilmington, Ohio, Monday,
December 7, 1931, page 1, Mrs. Julia Van Oflen was the Mayor at that time.
{
Wilmington is a city within adjacent Clinton County, formed, or newly created,
on February 19, 1810 from sections of Highland County and Warren County.}
She was appointed in April 1930, when the former Mayor resigned and moved
to Columbus. She was reelected in November for a two year term and "she
received 135 of the 136 votes cast at the village polls." She and her husband
had a general store in the village, having come to Corwin from
Norwood
seven years before. Corwin officialdom also Includes the following:
Miss Dora Stiles, Treasurer, and Mrs. Ethyl Beckett, Mrs. Lura Werntz
and Mrs. Amanda Norton, Councilwomen. They were re-elected for two year
terms. The women go about assiduously in their business of running
the government. They have redecorated the Council hall inside and out
and it stands resplendent in Its new coat of yellow paint. When Council meets
the first Tuesday in each month the women file into the little building and take
their places around a freshly dusted council table. Sometimes there is a bouquet
of flowers in its center. Chairs are new and comfortable and light from new lamps
casts a gleam over the proceedings. The women have made other improvements
In the village. A new concrete base has been built around the village pump
and to keep apace the modern times an air marker with the name Corwin
has been painted in bold yellow letters atop the Pennsylvania Railroad station.
The village does not pay for Its officials magnificent salaries but none of the
women complain of her pay. The annual salaries are: Mayor. $20; Treasurer,
$20; Marshal $20; Clerk, $25 and Councilwomen. $12 . Law violators are scarce
in the little agricultural village and Mrs. Van Oflen has not been required to hear
a case since she has held office. "A few petty matters have arisen,” she says,
"but these have been settled out of Court." Mrs. Van Oflen and her husband
(Frank E.) came to Corwin from Norwood seven years ago last May. They conduct
a general store in the village. They have five children. Joseph, 15; Raymond 13;
Rita, 11; Paul, 9, and Ralph. 7.] [Additional notoriety of the all women leadership,

"
My Impressions of San Francisco" W. D. Tinney, traveling salesman for the
George Wm. Hoffman Indianapolis, submits the following interesting article:
Try to visualize a city situated at the extreme tip of a peninsula and you may
have an idea as to the geographical location of San Francisco. This isolation
has been more or less broken by the building of the Bay and Golden Gate
bridges. Will this factor tend to accentuate the commercialism of this city
or will its civic pride keep alive that certain "atmosphere" that is so famous
throughout the world to those who have enjoyed here hospitality? I find a sense
of civic pride here that is unequaled in any other city in the U.S. We find here
the restlessness of New York and London mixed with languor and charm
of the orient. Geographical position plus climate conditions serve to give her
that cosmopolitan character that might otherwise be lacking. The compactness
of this city seems to isolate one from the continent and give that feeling
of having visited a foreign port. A world port: Embarcadero, ships and men
from all the ports. Foreign colonies, one may dine around the world
in San Francisco, famous for its foods; theatres, concerts, sports, cafes,
night clubs reflect the same cosmopolitanism. San Francisco is not just
something to see; it is a deeper, joyous experience. Headquarters for business,
finance, industry, it can truly be called one of America's story book cities.
Will Rogers once made the remark, "There are only three cities that have
resisted all efforts by their chamber of commerce to modernize them; namely
New Orleans, San Antonia San Francisco." I am thankful for the privilege
of verifying this statement and hope it remains so for posterity.

Waynesville, Ohio, Thursday, February 22, 1940
Obituary
Joseph Tinney was born in Harrison county, Kentucky, December 26, 1868,
and died February 11, 1940 in Corwin, Ohio, aged 71 years. The untimely death
of his father placed the responsibilities of life upon his small frame when he
was only sixteen but the Christian teaching of his parents and his own tireless
energy offset the many obstacles that beset him. He was an honest man
and kindly. A man of infinite pest (sic), his dry humor served as an excellent
foil to make his wit more attractive. All who knew Mr. Tinney liked him well.
He was a man who was, for many virtues, excellent. A kind husband a noble
father, sympathetic and helpful to the sick, a willing assistant to his neighbors,
a good provider, a tireless worker, he has laid down many fine examples
which his people and friends might well follow. True to himself and to all his
acquaintances, his honesty was remarkable. By his departing, Mr. Tinney
leaves a vacant chair that cannot be filled, but the great good he did for
his fellow men will never be forgotten. His great soul departed in peace
and should serve as a beacon for us remaining on earth to pursue our
course throughout this life, that when our maker so desires to reclaim
the soul from the flesh it may be ready and willing to return home to
our Father who art in Heaven. Mr. Tinney leaves his loving and devoted
wife Nettie, who was ever at his side attending him during his long period
of sickness; seven children, Leonard, Lura, Murrel, Prentice, Wilbur,
Webster and Sherman; two brothers, Elza and James; three sisters,
Mrs. Corbin, Mrs. Beckett and Mrs. Campbell; 21 grandchildren
and one great grandchild. - A Note Of Appreciation - We wish to extend
to our friends, neighbors, relatives, Mr. McClure and assistant our heartfelt
thanks and appreciation for the sympathy and kindness tendered us during
our hours of bereavement in the loss of our dear husband and father,
Joseph Tinney.     The Family.

for a glimpse at the plane adding to the already congested condition
of the highways around the field. Those who were fortunate enough

Private Junior L. Towson Cited For Extreme Bravery In Germany
From headquarters of an American armored division in Germany comes
an interesting story by Bill Barton of 2101 Riverside Drive, Dayton, former
sports writer for The Dayton Daily News, who participated in the invasion
of France and who recently heard of an amazing feat of Heroism performed
by a Dayton Soldier. The boy, Private Junior L. Towson, whose address
is Rural Route 11 Dayton, and is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Hardin,
attended the Waynesville school until the time he enlisted in the army
from this vicinity, is a cycliet (cyclist) in the armored division and the incident
which Barton relates occurred during a drive into the Siegfried line.
The Germans had no place remaining to run to and were dug in to put up
a bitter defense. United States tanks, which were being used to batter enemy
pillboxes, were running desperately short of ammunition. One truck had
attempted to run the gauntlet of artillery, mortar and anti-tank fire and had
been knocked out. Towson, hearing of the need for ammunition, immediately
volunteered to drive it through. He and one other man loaded a half truck
with shells and took off. It was the middle of the afternoon of a clear (sic)
and the terrain provided no cover for the vehicle. Under direct observation
of the enemy, Towson carried out the ammunition mission by delivering it
to each tank in the front line, which was under constant fire. Then learning
that the tank crew were in need of water, he collected the water cans, had
them filled at the rear and made a return trip. He completed the day's work
by carrying two wounded infantrymen to an aid station. [Research Note:
Junior Leroy Towson (1921–1972) was actually the step-son, by his 2nd wife,
of the said
Ephraim Lawrence Hardin (1878–1954).]

the front page of the Famous Women section of the Sunday Portland Oregonian
newspaper, featured a story by William A. Warren titled “Portlander –
Famous Song Writer – Mrs. Carrie B. Adams Has Written More Church Music
Than Any Other Woman in the United States.” . . . “How does one set about
to compose so intricate a thing as a cantata? It is a process which is handled
quite systematically by Mrs. Adams. “First she decides what the theme
of the cantata is to be. Then she pursues her hymn books and her Bible
for divisional texts. Her words are carried over bodily from the hymns
or from the scriptures, although the continuity is her own. Then comes
the work of writing the music. “When the cantata has progressed
to the stage where its music must be written, Mrs. Adams must have
absolute quiet. That means Mr. Adams may trim any of the myriad
of trees and shrubs which abound on the acres which is their home
or, if it is raining, he may work at his bench in the basement.”]

Mrs. Nettie Hardin Tinney was born near Cynthiana, Ky., Aug. 23, 1871.
She departed this life Jan. 9, 1950, at the home of her son, Sherman.
She was united in marriage to Joseph Tinney Feb. 19, 1892, who proceeded
her in death Feb. 11, 1940. To this union was born eight children, six boys
and two girls; Lura Werntz, Waynesville; Mayme, deceased; Leonard, Murrell,

Remembrance is a golden chain, Death tries to break, but all in vain. To have,

to the table, which was beautifully decorated with a centerpiece of red
and white carnations. Their daughter, Mrs. Harry Schenk, composed
the following prayer and presented it to her parents in honor of the occasion.
A Daughter's Prayer - God, we thank Thee for this moment, In which each of us
may share The 55th Wedding Anniversary of A very wonderful, loving pair.
As their daughter, I would like to express In some small little way
My very deep love and appreciation I have for each of them this day.
When we were very small babies, And needed tender, loving care
To soothe our cries or sing Lullabies That true love was always there.
And as we grew older, They gave their guiding hand
And answered all our questions Our problems tried to understand.
We were taught to pray, Dear God And to know Thy way of life,
So that we would know right from wrong To help shield us from life's strife.
And as we married and grandchildren came And Great grandchildren, too,
There was always that special touch of love
That each and every loved one knew. So here we are today, Dear God
So grateful to You, You see That we can all be together
For it is only by the Grace of Thee. Amen.

These are the parents of Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.. Prior to their marriage,
Prentice "Thomas" Tinney was in the U.S.
Navy. He had a great love for
Shakespeare, which was initially acquired while attending an Opera while
on leave in New York City. Dad could quote Shakespeare profusely and loved
to do so, whenever appropriate. In 1928, Prentice was in Civil Service,
Signal Corp, as Radio Operator,
Fairfield Air Depot Ohio, near Dayton, Ohio.
[In 1924, the Dayton Air Service Committee purchased 4,520.47 acres of land
northeast of Dayton and presented the deeds to President Calvin Coolidge.
The land donation included the previously leased site of Wilbur Wright Field.
The War Department combined this gift with its adjacent site at the
Fairfield
Air Depot and re-designated the entire acreage as Wright Field to honor both
Wilbur and Orville Wright. -

Laine Alan Steel says: Later when he moved to Rancho Cordova, California
we went to visit him a couple of times. His apartment was right down near
the beach and I remember walking on the beach with him picking up starfish
and collecting seashells and sand dollars.) This is an incorrect memory, as
Rancho Cordova, California is east of Sacramento, California. My father,
whom I visited later on in life, once lived in
Hermosa Beach, California; his

The history of my family is tied anciently, into living in Book of Mormon lands.

Death certificate of my brother, Prentice E. Tinney, has birthplace: Fairfield, Ohio.
However, there are no current records indicating our family lived in Fairfield, Ohio,
and the reason is that Fairfield no longer exists. It is now
Fairborn, Greene, Ohio.
"
Fairborn is a portmanteau word created from the names Fairfield and Osborn;
the two villages that merged in 1950 after the Great Dayton Flood of 1913 forced
Osborn to move out of a flood plain and alongside Fairfield" " . . .
The furniture
was enough to furnish a cute little house out in Fairfield, [now
Fairborn, Ohio].
Our first son Prentice was born there, at home. We did not buy the home (located)
in Fairfield, [now Fairborn] but were just renting it. It was a frame, one story home
with a basement and yard and garden. I started and planted a garden (springtime).
It had a furnace that was coal and a gas stove in the kitchen. The only car we had
was an old Model T Ford." Compare: "At this time, Prentice and Hazel were living
on Darst Avenue. Dad worked at Wright Field as Radio Operator - remote operator
keyed to Fairfield. Homes: next lived at Livingston Avenue in Dayton, Ohio,
a short street between Lindon and Huffman Avenue; renting a little house. 
Radio operator - military air flights and weather reports conveyed to pilots.
From Livingston, the family moved to Edgar Avenue, with Hazel now pregnant
with Marilyn (
1930 Census). Family was living at this time in a duplex rental unit."
There is a picture of
Hilltop Kindergarten, 1936 - Marilyn Tinney, my known sister,

within the limits of the City of Dayton, in this time period. Thompson and Greene,
Hazel's ancestry, including area of Fairborn, are in Xenia Daily Gazette archives.

Fairfield Aviation General Supply Depot / Fairfield Air Depot Ohio is part of:
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, located in both Greene and Montgomery Counties.
The
(1930 Census) locates family: 135 Edgar Avenue, dated 10 April 1930, which
should be correct; nevertheless, whoever filled out the Census was wrong; it lists
my mother as born in Kentucky, when she was actually born in Ohio. She married
before, which appears in the statistics, as age at first marriage is given for her,
as 24, or circa 1924; for Prim, age at first marriage is 22, or circa 1928. Also, it
should be clearly noted that Hazel, according to the census, was 5 years older.
My dad's mother was not born in Ohio, nor my mom's dad born in Kentucky.
And to top it off, my brother was not born in Kentucky, as census recorded.

"Corwin, Ohio, made national history in 1930 when it had an all-woman

(first row) Councilwoman Amanda Norton and Mayor Julia Van Oflen;
(second row) Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, Treasurer Dora Stiles,
and Councilwoman Laura Werntz. (Courtesy of Mary L. Cook Public Library.)
[Research Note: Meanwhile, back at the ranch, it was like father, like son, like
mother, like daughter. Councilwoman Laura Werntz was the oldest surviving sister
of Prentice Thomas Tinney, (the father of Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.); full name
being Lura Deen Tinney, born 23 Oct 1894, in Berry, Harrison, Kentucky, who had
married Robert Newton Werntz 14 May 1914, in Warren County, Ohio. Secondly,
Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, is the wife
Ethel Scott, of Lon, or Alonzo Beckett.
[Correction: The
Xenia Daily Gazette, Xenia, Ohio, Thursday, December 31, 1936,

Christmas eve at the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Watkins,
with a family dinner. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. Lon Beckett,
Mr. and Mrs. Earl Holland, Miss Dora Stiles, all of Corwin, Mr. and Mrs. R. Conner,
of New Burlington. Lon Beckett is abbreviated form for the name, Alonzo Beckett,
who married
12 Feb 1908 Ethel Scott; both were not previously married. Alonzo
was the son of William Beckett and Mary Whalen. Alonso Beckett, is found
as a white male, aged 8 in the 1880 Census, grandson to William Beckett, age 66,
born 1814, in Kentucky, and his wife Margaret 70 born 1810, in Virginia. Residing
in the family is William Beckett, son, constable, age 35, born 1845 in Kentucky.
Alonzo Beckett is 35 years of age on the 27 day of July 1908, or born 27 July 1873.
Ethel Scott, is 25 years of age on the 2nd day of January 1908, born 2 Jan 1883,
the daughter of Harmen Scott and Susan Roberts. The 1920 Census shows
Alonzo Beckett (1873-1953) & Ethel (Scott) Beckett (1883-1958), had two children,
Vashti  A Beckett and Emogene D Beckett age 10 and 9 respectively. Vashti

The Miami Gazette shows: Waynesville, Ohio, Wednesday, December 18, 1929
- Local Happenings - . . . Mr. and Mrs. Joe Tinney entertained at dinner Monday,
Mrs. Rachel Crew, Mrs. L. Wardlow and Mr. Frank Crew. Afternoon callers were
Mrs. Norton, Mrs. Truax Mrs. L. Werntz, and Mrs. Lon Beckett. With additional
finding in the Xenia Daily Gazette, in 1936, that "The guests were Mr. and Mrs.
Lon Beckett, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Holland. Miss Dora Stiles, all of Corwin",
the conclusion is drawn, that Councilwoman Ethel Beckett, in the photograph,
is actually the wife
Ethel Scott, of Lon, or Alonzo Beckett, and not that of said
Ethel Cornelia Roberts, wife of Charles David Beckett.
Alonzo Beckett was born
in Harrison County, Kentucky, and had social affiliations with the Joseph Tinney
and Nettie (Hardin) Tinney family, but no actual biological relationship, or any
intermarriage has presently been determined to exist.
William Beckett, Jr.,
(married Mary Jane Whalen in Harrison, Kentucky, on August 22, 1871);
in 1910 Census of Wayne Township, Warren County, Ohio, age 57, widowed,
in household of son Lon / Alonzo Beckett family.] Now, continuing forward,
according to the Wilmington News-Journal, Wilmington, Ohio, Monday,
December 7, 1931, page 1, Mrs. Julia Van Oflen was the Mayor at that time.
{Wilmington is a city within adjacent Clinton County, formed, or newly created,
on February 19, 1810 from sections of Highland County and Warren County.}
She was appointed in April 1930, when the former Mayor resigned and moved
to Columbus. She was reelected in November for a two year term and "she
received 135 of the 136 votes cast at the village polls." She and her husband
had a general store in the village, having come to Corwin from
Norwood
seven years before. Corwin officialdom also Includes the following:
Miss Dora Stiles, Treasurer, and Mrs. Ethyl Beckett, Mrs. Lura Werntz
and Mrs. Amanda Norton, Councilwomen. They were re-elected for two year
terms. The women go about assiduously in their business of running
the government. They have redecorated the Council hall inside and out
and it stands resplendent in Its new coat of yellow paint. When Council meets
the first Tuesday in each month the women file into the little building and take
their places around a freshly dusted council table. Sometimes there is a bouquet
of flowers in its center. Chairs are new and comfortable and light from new lamps
casts a gleam over the proceedings. The women have made other improvements
In the village. A new concrete base has been built around the village pump
and to keep apace the modern times an air marker with the name Corwin
has been painted in bold yellow letters atop the Pennsylvania Railroad station.
The village does not pay for Its officials magnificent salaries but none of the
women complain of her pay. The annual salaries are: Mayor. $20; Treasurer,
$20; Marshal $20; Clerk, $25 and Councilwomen. $12 . Law violators are scarce
in the little agricultural village and Mrs. Van Oflen has not been required to hear
a case since she has held office. "A few petty matters have arisen,” she says,
"but these have been settled out of Court." Mrs. Van Oflen and her husband

There is the following commentary, in the Wright Patterson AFB History; namely:
"Patterson Field is known today as Area A of Wright-Patterson AFB. It includes
the Fairfield Air Depot and the Huffman Prairie Flying Field. Patterson Field
soon became the Army’s center for aviation logistics, maintenance and supply.
[Environmental Study noted below, states: "Ohio State Route 444 divides WPAFB
into Area A (Patterson Field) to the north and Area B (Wright Field) to the south."]
Although Wright Field and Patterson Field were now two separate installations,
their missions continued to be intertwined.
Both fields experienced dramatic
expansion during World War II, in real estate as well as structures. Employment
at the fields jumped from approximately 3,700 in December 1939 to nearly 50,000
by mid-1945. Wright Field grew from a modest installation with approximately
30 buildings to a 2,064-acre facility with some 300 buildings and the Air Corps’
first modern paved runways. The Hilltop area, acquired from private landowners
from 1943 to 1944, provided housing and services for the thousands of troops
assigned to Wright Field. Office and laboratory buildings and test facilities
crowded the original part of the field. I am therefore led to believe, that indeed,
Prentice Elliot Tinney was born in the Hilltop area, formerly owned privately,
and then later sold in 1943 to 1944, becoming military housing and service areas.
March 2012 Environmental Assessment for the Hilltop Community Services District,
Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, notes: "The site for the Proposed Action
is the Hilltop area bound by Hobson Way, 10th Street, Skyline Drive, & 8th Street."

My father, Prentice now moved his growing family to a little farm, just outside
the town of
Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio, on Route #73. This farm had
twenty-five [25] acres of land, a two story comfortable home, with furnace,
electricity, bathroom facilities and an additional structure: a barn for the horses
and cows. My father Prentice raised chickens and sold eggs on the side. The family
had two cows while living here. "

was scared to death of cows. There were 15 big trees on the place and fruit trees.

Waynesville - Google Maps is a village located southeast of Dayton, Ohio. Thus,
according to family records, house located on Route 73,
U. S. Postal Rural Route #2,
was between two points of employment,
Wright-Patterson AFB - Google Maps,
and [
remote operator keyed to Fairfield]; which land bordered Wilbur Wright Field,
and Riverside, Ohio. The shortest
distance between Riverside, Ohio, and the village
of Waynesville, Ohio, is approximately 21.5 miles, currently taking 34 minutes; or,
going through the Xenia, Ohio route, 26.9 miles and 33 minutes. Since this was next
to the Xenia, Ohio area, where my mother's family resided, it was to her, very ideal.
On the other hand, the current, approximate
distance between Dayton, Ohio, and
Riverside, Ohio, by car, was 4.9 / 5.6 miles, taking approximately 13 to 14 minutes,
for a savings of a daily 20 minute drive, each way; which is trivial, California style.
Nevertheless, this appears to be a possible reason why Dad left Waynesville, Ohio,
and his inherent disgust, of farming in general, obtained by field labor, in Ohio.

I, Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr., was born at Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio, USA,
on the living room couch, on the farm; present were my mother; my grandmother,
Mary Elizabeth (Thompson) Greene, who assisted in the birth. I understand my
given name: "Thomas", as far as my father's name goes, is a portion of his name
that was acquired by him, or used by him, when he joined the Catholic Church,
and that prior to that time he was known only by the name of Prentice Tinney.
[His middle name, Thomas, was given to him as his Saint’s name when he joined
the Catholic Church later in his life]; nevertheless, he told me he chose Thomas,
in remembrance of the fact that my name was Thomas; so he chose St. Thomas.
My father took me to the
Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, in Sacramento,
when I visited in California; visited the
St. Mary's Catholic Church (Dayton, Ohio):

In my memory, I have a picture of myself sitting in a little baby chair - a picture
which I once had in my possession. I have no recollection of the home / farm
at Waynesville, Ohio, save that which I saw in pictures my mother had of my oldest
brother Prentice Tinney, showing him with birds, pigeons, (as I remember),
which he greatly loved. My mother told me that it was a very much liked home
and she always regretted not staying there to live. My mother said I had a very
difficult early childhood and that I almost died from lung and throat congestion.
When I was just about three months old, WWII began. [The attack on Pearl Harbor
was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service against
the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory, on the morning
of December 7, 1941. The attack, also known as the Battle of Pearl Harbor,
led to the United States' entry into World War II.
] Dad was not called up to active
military duty as his civilian status was too important to the defense of America.

Year 1942:
In A.D. 1942, my Dad, Prentice was a Radio Engineer. The family moved back
to 16 Bidleman Street, in Dayton, Ohio, at this time. One more child was conceived
after I, Tommy was born in 1941, but it was lost by a miscarriage due to the poor
health Mom was enduring. By A.D. 1944, Dad had become a Senior Radio Engineer;
flying electromagnetic interference control. [Research Note: Thomas Milton Tinney,
now Sr., was born 10 Aug 1941, at Waynesville, Warren County, Ohio. I am sitting,
seen in a little baby chair, at Waynesville, with a house door open, and the sun
light on my lower body; it had to be warm enough for me to be comfortable,
in the fall of 1941. In 1942, m
y brother Prentice Elliot Tinney  is  mentioned at:
Lincoln School, Dayton, Ohio, Service - This is to certify That Prentice Tinney
has earned the privilege of being an Honor Student in this school. This certificate
is awarded only to students having an excellent scholarship record, or who have
performed an outstanding service as a school citizen, or who have a perfect
attendance record. Date: June 10, 1942   J(ohn). R. Goodrich  Principal. The family
had to be living at 16 Bidleman Street
, months before this date, for Prentice
to have received this certificate. What happened to cause this immediate move?
First there was the
Attack on Pearl Harbor - December 7, 1941. Because of this,
Seventeen Eastern states put gasoline rationing into effect - May 15, 1942.
According to Ohio History Central, Rationing officially began in the Spring of 1942,
with the federal government's implementation of the Food Rationing Program.

Prentice Thomas Tinney was in a personal position to have "heads-up" knowledge.
United States civilians first received ration books—War Ration Book Number One,
or the "Sugar Book"—on 4 May 1942, through more than 100,000 schoolteachers,
PTA groups, and other volunteers. A national speed limit of 35 miles per hour
(56 km/h) was imposed to save fuel and rubber for tires. Later in May, distribution
of gasoline cards and
Gas Ration Stickers occurred. This critical change of events,
forced my family to move from lovely accommodations at Waynesville, Ohio,
to the more restricted accommodations at 16 Bidleman Street, Dayton, Ohio,
which was geographically closer to Dad's government work facilities (Thus, It is
approximately 21.5 miles, or, 26.9 miles VERSUS 4.9 miles. or 5.6 miles). And yes,
my mother Hazel, did talk to me about having to use WWII
Ration Books. Also,
though my father had a problem with drinking, which my mother disliked, his
occupation as a radio engineer, would have required him to be very sober.
All indications are that he was in a very high stress environment, that led
to occasional, harmful,
Binge Drinking, to escape the pressures at work.
My brother Charles Evan Tinney, was a macho man when young, and didn't
care as much as I did about details. He lists incorrectly, on employment record
applications, as living at 16 Bidleman St. from 1944 to 1954, a generalized decade,
whereas primary records show our family had moved by early 1942, suggesting
that the end date was at least two years off, by decade, to before the year 1952,
as noted by other family records. Family was located twice at 16 Bidleman; three
years before; then 1942 through 1949, for over 10 years. Check: Ask Me Anything:

Corwin - . . .  Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Tinney entertained a group of friends
Saturday evening to a fish fry. Those present were Mr. Ralph Lohman,
Mrs. Cleo Lawson, of Covington, Ky., Mr. J. E. Yenger, Miss Leeada Werntz
of Dayton, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Schank of Lebanon, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Berdine,
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Farquar, Mrs. Lura Werntz. Mr. Lab Williams, of Lebanon,

Miss Leona Tinney of Dayton, was the week-end guest
of her parents Mr. and Mrs. Murrel Tinney.

And as
Paul Harvey would say, and now you (will) know "The Rest of the Story ":
[Research Note: It is tremendously distressing to me, as a professional genealogical
research specialist, evaluating these records from an economic standpoint, to see
that the movements of my family, were akin to someone riding a merry-go-round;
in series of repeated address changes, in the same regional area of Dayton, Ohio.
They were quick, and confusing, making it difficult to obtain security. There appears
to be no financial justification for changes in residences, as no added compensation
could be received, since
work location was static, for the well established, primary
wage earner. Additionally, to not purchase the property and home, (as opportunity
arose), where Chuck and Tom were born, appears to fly against all reason. It cannot
be justified in fact, as all other residences were inferior, and did not provide proper
supporting facilities for raising a large family, and thus disadvantaged together,
both the mother of the family, to raise the children, and the children themselves,
to exist in a caring, protected, and loving environment. These facts alone, manifest
a lack of proper concern, by the husband, for the wife in the family, to be happy
and contented, as well as for the children themselves, to acquire meaningful,
established social and spiritual associations. Escaping, by Ham radio use at home,
created additional closed doors, along with
alcohol abuse, further isolating family
members, from immediate care and concern of the father, who was "
not present".
All indications are that my father, Prentice Thomas Tinney, had a poor opinion
of women, who were to serve him, but not be served themselves; to be the mother
of his children, but not
heart and mind part of him, as exclusive head of the home.]


Year 1943:
The Miami Gazette - Waynesville, Ohio, Thursday, October 21, 1943
Apendicitis (sic) [Appendicitis] Operation
Word has been received by relatives here to the effect that Prentice Tinney
of Dayton underwent an operation for appendicitis and gall bladder trouble
at the Miami Valley hospital in Dayton Saturday morning.

My oldest brother, Prentice Elliot Tinney, first son of Prentice "Thomas" Tinney
and Hazel Kathleen Greene, was born
01 Jan 1929, Fairfield, Greene County, Ohio,
USA. Prentice Elliot Tinney was the newest baby for that year in the area.
The family received many gifts from local merchants and this occasion
was noted in local newspapers. Prentice Elliot Tinney loved birds.
He died unmarried 30 Dec 1943, Dayton, Montgomery, Ohio.
Looking at his death certificate, it says that he was in St. Elizabeth Hospital
for a period of two days; he died 30 Dec 1943, hour 6 and minute 5.
He was attended by the physician from the 29th to the 30th of December, 1943;
the immediate cause of death was: Streptococcus pneumonia
.
His physician was George J. Rau, MD, 927 Wyoming, signed 12/30/43.
His occupation at time of death was "Scholar". [He was LDS baptized after his death
on 08 Dec 1945; LDS endowed 09 Oct 1951.]
 I do not remember him at all. No grave
marker was initially placed on his tomb or resting place, but I remember my father
saying he later went back to Waynesville, Ohio and placed one over his grave.
[Prentice Tinney (Unknown-1943) - Find A Grave Memorial]


My mother greatly loved her first child Prentice Elliot Tinney & was never to forget
his untimely death. She always prayed to God that she would die before she would
ever see any of her other children pass away. I remember my mother Hazel telling
me he died from over-exposure and pneumonia. He was in an old fashioned oxygen
tent and Mom remembered his terror of the noise of the machine as he died; seeing
his feet become cold and blue and the death process working up his legs. Mother
always felt her first born son Prentice Elliot Tinney would have led a good life, and
would not have died if he could have been administered penicillin. It was denied
and not available because of World War II. The doctor could not obtain it because
it was being given first to the troops on the front lines of battle. So, our family gave
a life for the war effort. Buried, at
Miami Cemetery Corwin, Warren County, Ohio;

“My Dear Mr. & Mrs. Tinney, Unfortunately, I did not know of the passing of your son
and our little friend until I returned to school a short time ago. I am the sophomore
class (his class) adviser. The class is large and I do not meet many of the pupils
personally; however, we all knew Prentice-he was always smiling, always friendly
and courteous. I know you miss him at every turn. I know his brothers and sisters
must be lost without him in their play. So do we miss him at school, but we feel
fortunate to have had him for a little while at least. He has given Wilbur Wright High
School something very valuable-a fine personality, a loyalty to his school,
and a keen interest in athletics. These things we shall remember. His class, as well
as the entire school, joins me in expressing a very deep and sincere sympathy.

Statements of Hazel Kathleen Greene Tinney, Prentice Elliot Tinney's Mother:
Prentice was born on the first day of the year. He was the "New Year" baby &
therefore received a lot of presents. He was very active when young. The first
time that he tried to walk is an example. He had pulled himself up to a chair
& his mother took the chair away not knowing he was holding on. This caused him
to walk a few steps without help. When he found himself walking he kept right
on and didn't want to stop. His mother let him do it because she was so amazed
at this. He would fall but get up and go again. That was to cause his
exhaustion for later in the evening when placed in his crib, he kept on playing.
The next morning when Mother tried to get him up, he wouldn't. He began to get
worse & worse & began to get delirious; his eyes began to roll up in his head.
Mother took him to the doctor & he said that it was because of overexertion.
After that he never tried to walk for at least three weeks. Also, Mom was very
careful not to over-exert him. He was very active and everybody loved him, for
he always smiled, even when dying, for, he looked up at the nurse & smiled at
her even though in great pain. Marilyn was born when he was 16 months old
& Norman was born before he was three. It was very hard for Mom because she
had three little ones to take care of. At 4 1/2 years he began to go to a private
kindergarten (summer 1933). He was very bright & at 5 1/2 could count and spell
big words like spaghetti, & could read. Mom used to take a chart with words
on it into the breakfast alcove & he would always ask what the words were.
They were repeated & when he would come to them again he could easily
recite them. The chart was about 6' (by) 24'. School authorities didn't want
to accept him in school under 5 1/2 (summer 1934) because children had to be
6 by September to be eligible, but when they got him there they said he was
at least 6 months ahead of any child there. He was always mischievous. One
time when in the First Grade the temperature was very low, below 0 degree,
and school was completely closed. Prentice, on the way home played in the
snow so much he was almost frozen & it took mom all afternoon to thaw
him out. When Norman & Prentice were young, they used to play on a 6
piece gym that mom had in the back yard. Whenever Prentice got on it,
Norman would ask to use it. If Prentice refused, he would run into the house
& tell mom that Prentice had again said a "bad word". Then mom would
bring Prentice into the house & give him a paddling, or wash his mouth
out with soap. Finally, a neighbor woman (Shutts) came over & said that
mom was beating Prentice for no reason & that Norman was lying so that
he could have the gym set. When mom found this out, it about broke her
heart & it taught her not to believe anything without proof. Mom later
heard & saw Norman at his trick, after which he got his just rewards.
Older people loved him because he would talk to them when other
boys wouldn't. He was a trial to teachers, being always on the go,
not mean. Prentice also went through a fire stage in which he used
to burn almost anything. He once had a comb on fire; it went up in flames;
he dropped it on the rug & burnt a big hole in it. He used to get up earlier
than the rest of the family. Onetime he got up earlier than usual & as all
the doors were locked, he let himself out a window with papers & matches
in hand & set them on fire outside on the ground. Even with these faults,
he was a great boy. When mom was sick in bed, he would try to tuck her in.
When 9, (1938) he'd say (as mom was pregnant with Sharon) "don't anybody
by noisy", and he'd do the dishes & the floors as good as any grown woman
could. He was very tender-hearted & protective. He jointed the YMCA in
Dayton, Ohio, & because of his good swimming ability, was asked
to become an instructor of small children.  He refused because of timidity,
though he won first place in all swimming contests entered into at the YMCA.
If fact, later on he was featured in a Cincinnati paper. He also won a pole
vaulting contest at Wilbur Wright HS & was a good runner, though longer
legged boys outran him. He loved greatly animals & got mom to purchase
green pants & shirt so that he could sit in the woods & watch without being seen.
He made pets out of captured animals, & treated the injured, learning how to,
in the Books of Knowledge he read. At Waynesville, Ohio, a tree house was built,
& food was prepared by mom & brought up for those children old enough
to climb up & eat there. Prentice caddied at the Country Club at Dayton, Ohio,
& also became one of the best pinsetters at the Academy
Bowling Alley,
on Steel Avenue, Dayton, Ohio. Prentice had high native ability, as shown
on school aptitude tests. SCHOOLS: Hearthstone (1934-35) . . .
(All attitude marks seem to indicate restless attitude in school, probably bringing
marks down, as it was indicated by the Principal of Wilbur Wright that Prentice
has the highest ability rating of all the Tinney children. Prentice was all the time
going out when he shouldn't. (Like playing football in below zero weather.)
This is what caused his death. He ran away when he was sick. Died of
pneumonia on the 30 of December, 1943.

I remember as a child, the joy of having my mother read me Uncle Arthur's
bedtime stories. [Arthur Maxwell was known affectionately around the world
as "Uncle Arthur." Uncle Arthur's Bedtime Stories were born in 1924 as the young
father told them to little Maureen and Graham to put them to sleep at night.

But the stories proved successful beyond even Uncle Arthur's wildest dreams.

has been succeeded by many more. On November 6, (1970) one week before
his death, he completed Volume 48.]

Year 1947
:
Earliest memories of my childhood are tied up with emotional experiences,
such as recognizing as a little child, in the summertime, (we allowed to wear only
a diaper or white underpants outside), when it was hot; feelings of embarrassment.
There was a "commons" in the back of our home and we used to play baseball
and other hide-and-seek games. I remember helping mom during a dry spell to cart
water in large tubs up the old hill and alley to a garden she had gotten permission
to plant there. I can still see us trying to steady the red wagon so the water would
not fall out. Also, the efforts we spent in clearing the place, the hornet's nest we got
into and the stings; the effort at trying to burn a tree stump. The Commons was hilly
and the stone retainer wall in the back was filled with dirt by mom and she put moss
and other flowers in it to beautify, as she could, the back yard area. Once I ate a lot
of cucumbers. Mom had placed in a vinegar concoction, which upset my stomach.
I was taken to the hospital with a high fever, and had the car window down to cool
me off. When I was being examined, I was prepared for removal of my appendix,
until they asked me if I had eaten anything. Because my temperature was cooled
down & there was a delay in the operating procedure, I was saved from the knife.
I have a picture of me with a bandage on my arm, getting a shot, in 1947.

Mother obtained a civil divorce from her second husband, Prentice Thomas Tinney,
on 20 Dec 1948. I was completely overcome with grief and sorrow by this tragedy;
still remember front living room parlor, off limits to children, and only for guests,
where I laid down to rest on a couch; I stayed to recover from my deep remorse.
Of one thing I am certain, though Mom had plenty of imperfections and made errors
in life, as we all do, (except Jesus Christ), I have never known anything personally -
in her heart and mind, to be anything less than being someone totally dedicated
to living the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, at all times; similar to faithful
General Authorities I have known in my lifetime. The Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr.
has been declared to have done, in 135th Section of the Doctrine and Covenants,
"more, save Jesus only, for the salvation of men in this world, than any other man
that ever lived in it." Yet, in that same record, he was chastised by Jesus Christ.
Joseph Smith, Jr. confessed: “Although I do wrong, I do not the wrongs that I am
charged with doing: the wrong that I do is through the frailty of human nature,
like other men. No man lives without fault. Do you think that even Jesus, if He
were here, would be without fault in your eyes? His enemies said all manner
of evil against Him—they all watched for iniquity in Him.” Nevertheless, Joseph
further stated: "You don’t know me; you never knew my heart. No man knows
my history. I cannot tell it: I shall never undertake it. I don’t blame any one
for not believing my history. If I had not experienced what I have, I would not
have believed it myself. I never did harm any man since I was born in the world.
My voice is always for peace." My mother was harmless and always for peace.
I know that when Joseph Smith, Jr., jumped "from the window, at Carthage jail,
and was shot dead in the attempt, exclaiming: O Lord my God!", he gave his life
to preserve the lives of his remaining brethren, still within the jail, just like Jesus
exposed himself to the unruly mob, to save the lives of the apostles in his day.

I remember seeing a picture of me on a horse, which my mother had taken of me,
when I was a child on 16 Bidleman Street, in Dayton, Ohio. I remember playing
with a yo-yo in front of the local grocery store, and watching others do tricks. Also,
going down two blocks to another grocery store and reading lots of comic books
and trading them at the store. [I was raised in family tradition where children were
to be seen, but not heard, such as that which I have observed in Asiatic cultures.
I was to speak, but only when spoken to, as adults were the authority figures. Thus,
I had to ask permission to talk to my own mom; only with her consent and on her
schedule. So, when I began to attempt to learn how to read, in the beginning, I had
to ask questions, at home. My parents both did read the local papers at home, and I
would catch their words spoken, and then try to make sense out of the paragraphs.
I didn't get much help, as I was the youngest one in the family. Nevertheless, all of
my brothers and sisters liked the Sunday comic sections, which were family clean.
So I could "see" the story and ask what was in the
comic word captions, which my
siblings condescended to tell me.] Going with my mother to get groceries at local
store was fun. I remember when we had to smoke out a squirrel's nest which had
been built into the wood siding of our house. My brother Charles and I built a play
house in the back yard on a cement slab of cement. We also built a tree-house of
sorts and had a small swing on the tree in the back yard. When television came into
the neighborhood, as children, scared, but tremendously inquisitive, we visited one
of our neighbor's front yard, and hid in the bushes, peaking through a front window,
to see for ourselves, the new wonder of the world. Another Bidleman neighbor had
a
player piano and I loved to go there sometimes and listen to the pneumatic music.

We had a cistern in our back yard in which water was saved and used to wash hair,
etc. I remember going Halloween trick-or-treating and how delighted I was to get
a sack or two of goodies. Mom would let us eat some and then it was to be our:
"Two month stock of goodies." Our house had a small basement for fruit, and I
remember a hornet building a nest - I mean a mud wasp, and the life and death
struggle it had with a spider. I remember one day running out the front door and off
the porch, right into a giant spider net, a large yellow garden spider had built across
the porch posts. That scared the life out of me! I remember running away from home
with my brother Charles and seeing all the exciting sights - like where the end of the
bus line went; how scared we became when it got dark and how we called home to
mom to come and get us - and of course the big licking we got on our return home.
I remember the time when our gas refrigerator broke and we had to leave the house
and go to a neighbor's place to sleep at night. I remember selling lemonade on the
corner; building dams in the streams of water near the house; playing baseball,
as a child and flying kites up at Lincoln Junior High School where I went to school
for the first eight grades of schooling. During some summers, attended Bible School
in non-LDS Churches, as my mother did not know the location of the LDS Church,
or LDS branch meeting house. I remember as a child going to skating rinks,
which was fun, as well as some local movie matinees.

When on Bidleman Street, there was a cigar tree, and some kids would put long
pods in their mouths and pretend to be big stars, and smoke like the "big folks".
I once picked up a cigarette butt I found in the gutter near out house, and tore
it apart. I was
Tattled upon by my siblings, and was accordingly given correction.
I was shown pictures of diseased lungs in Church, and never took up the habit.
I once had to search out my father at a local tavern, and was offered a drink there,
by someone not so sober, and I refused on my own, because he looked scary.

I remember Marilyn bringing a TV home and how we had the opportunity
to watch "Uncle Miltie" or
Milton Berle, and how I would hurry and take my
bath, so that I could watch TV. Marilyn started to date Doug Purdon, when we
lived in the Bidleman Street home, and I remember bugging them for a quarter,
so they could be alone on the couch in the old parlor. Marilyn tried to prepare
for marriage, by going to the grocery store and buying the best of food, and we
the family, got to try out all of her good cooking, which I thought was excellent.
Marilyn had difficulty trying to learn how to drive a car, and I can remember
the burning emergency brake, on one occasion, as she tried to go up the hill
on Wayne Avenue, after stopping at a red light. I can remember accompanying
her down the street, on Wayne Avenue, at night, as a police type protection,
when she went out to get donuts, etc. I used to, at times, roller skate to school,
at Lincoln Junior High School, due to the distance it was now. I was a guard
patrol member before this time, as some school cross-walks were dangerous.
I can remember playing marbles as a child on the school grounds and going
to the Library during the summers to get books. I never cared for horse stories.
The school library was well kept, as it was actually a neighborhood branch
of the Dayton - Montgomery County Public Library System. I played summer
baseball and was once on the Pee Wee League. Around this time period,
my brother Charles and I, participated for a short time on a Dry Cleaner Route.
One of my teachers in school, that I liked very much; I took my bike and rode
around Dayton until I found her home and visited with her there. I got the bike
at the Dayton Police Auction- I believe for $8.00- all others sold for more,
but the people kindly stopped bidding so I could have the bicycle.

I, Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr., was baptized, with Charles: 15 July 1950, on Saturday,
by Robert Walborn, of the Dayton branch, in a small creek out in the countryside,
(Mad River) in the vicinity of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. I remember the water
was cold when I was baptized. I remember the grass by the side of the creek; that
there was a small footpath across the creek from which the creek widened out a few
feet and the water was there deep enough for baptism. I remember this because one
of the boys was dressed in white and "took a swim" in the water.  He was rebuked
by the priesthood and told it was too sacred an occasion for such playing.
I was
confirmed with my brother Charles: 16 July 1950, on Sunday, by Douglas J. Harvey.

[LDS Ward Membership Records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints]

I remember enjoying my school life at
Lincoln Junior High School, quite a lot,
and remember a music teacher by the name of Miss Chard, and the time when
my voice was changing from high to low. I played in the school plays and also had
an opportunity to act in some plays, even participating in a refined affair for the City,
put on at the University of Dayton. My grades were usually good. I can remember
trying to sew and cook in a homemaking class at Lincoln- it was hard for me.
I remember the halls in a childlike way- the lockers and the time I went to get
an operation for my nose for polyps and the kids all questioning me about it.
[I have had a lifetime struggle with constant return of nasal polyps and related
medical treatments.] I remember even the first day of school and how scared I was
and how my sister Sharon had to drag me to school and my screaming and kicking.
I remember playing with clay and reading as a child in class. I can even remember
when I was asked in a reading circle to trade chairs, as we would move around
in a circle as our turn came, and my playing I was sitting on an invisible chair,
which made all the other little children laugh. I remember the semi-baldheaded
Principal,
John R. Goodrich, whom I greatly admired; respected as a child. Every
morning there was the pledge to the flag and prayer was allowed in school, and
the Bible was part of the curriculum. There were green blackboards, chalk writing
sticks and erasers, periodic report cards and grading on behavior and scholarship.
I remember the Miami River and walking down the banks- I loved water and to build
dams in small streams. I also remember flying kites on the hill of the local school,
and roaming through the small wooded area nearby, and climbing trees and getting
mulberries off of some of the trees. I liked most of my school teachers and used to,
when young, stay after class and erase the boards at the end of the school day.
I can also remember participating in flash card games.

[Lincoln Junior High School had a auditorium and gymnasium, an inner courtyard,
a Fall Festival fundraiser, that I remember attending, in back of school, with rides
for children, games, some food, and prizes. I once bought some nice glass settings
for Mom to use, and she kept them for years. School was at the top of a steep hill,
on Nassau Street, with a dug out flat surface for ball fields, surrounded by a stone
wall, built to secure a hilltop, near the ball fields. There was a chain link fence near
the balls fields that I tried to scale, and cut my right hand between my four fingers,
for which I obtained a lifetime scar. I remember the Jewish lady who was my home
room teacher and how I took an art class and she let me draw designs and put them
within the classroom- pictures I had drawn- to cover the windows. I remember my
English teacher, Mrs. Markus. The school, I remember, was square, with a central
cement court, and remember as a child, attending a school dance there. I reflect on
playing games in the school gym and fun I had playing kick-ball. I can remember
the feeling I had at different graduating times, from grade to grade, and the feeling
of growing up and going to the upper grade levels. I can remember being made
to make paper chains when I goofed off.] I remember taking baths in big tubs
in the kitchen and sleeping upstairs and the heavy blankets to keep the cold out,
as we had poor home heating. We had a coal stove in the front central room
and a parlor room to the front of that. I can remember being sick one summer
and Mom giving me the special opportunity to sleep on the parlor couch.
I remember my mother giving small amounts of money for good grades at school
and deducting amounts when we got less that a "C". She would even pay us
a penny or two for each "A", or satisfactory grade we got in our workbooks,
and so the final day of school, when the "teachers let the monkeys out",
was something to look forward to. I also will always appreciate my mother
making a special small cake for every child on their birthday, so that their
birthday was special; also, she tried to give $3.00, or so, on every birthday,
which made it a really special event.

Year 1951
:
On 27 Jan 1951, my sister, Marilyn Jean Tinney married Douglas Grant Purdon.
The License Issued Jan. 22nd. 1951; Marriage was Solemnized Jan. 27th 1951.
The
30 Jan 1951 is not the event date for marriage; it is copy certification date.
[In my opinion,
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is in a world of
pain, because they do not require Family Tree verification of record submissions.
If everyone was required to state where each data bit came from, family tradition,
oral tradition, all the way up to primary sources, closest to the events, and then
they were placed in a computerized hierarchy, automatically on the Tree links,
according to actual facts, as presented, it would clean up the system quickly,
and big time
. It would remove the contention from the system. It would equalize
the opinionated person with the simple newbie. A newbie original family bible,
for example, copied into the files, is greater than "personalized"
non-scholarship.
Because it is not being done, everyone doing Tempe Ordinance Work, is going
around in circles, and not one person can have any confidence in the system.
From a professional genealogical research standpoint, it is gross negligence.
This gross negligence results in worthy patrons going to the Temple, time and
time again, to repeat the same ordinance work, which becomes a useless act.
It is discouraging. It is an uninspired process. Melchizedek Priesthood is involved,
but it is not magnifying. It is terrifying! Those in authority, need to take necessary
steps to reverse the process, before LDS patrons stop going to the Temples.
Original documentation or sourcing, no matter how minimal the reference is,
must be included as a core, base requirement for initiating LDS Temple work.
Then, as the more correct data comes in, by hierarchic computerization, attach
the connecting relationship, by "elevating" the individuals into the more original
information. The Lord's work will go forward expeditiously, without interruption
and without duplication, using eldest surviving, worthy Family Representatives.
It defies all reason, in my mind, to create a system that is the very antithesis
of the Temple Ordinance Covenants, to sacrifice time, talent and means,
and even life itself, for the cause of Zion; and, then diametrically oppose
it all, by draining the money of the Saints, with DNA sop, as well as willfully,
and systematically allowing, in my mind, multi-duplication of records; that which
hinders and grinds to a halt, the very strength of the worthy Saints in the Church.]


We were at that time living in a large two story home with bricked in basement
at 1420 Wayne Avenue in Dayton, Ohio. She was a good old home and we had
two apartments in the back and mom ran a cleaner establishment in the front
and also held a job as telephone answering service for a local firm. I remember
helping to move items into the new home from 16 Bidleman street and trying to
clean up the place. I remember putting a large can into the back yard where we,
Charles and I tried to keep frogs. The house next door had a garage in the back
and one could run over the roof, and I remember the fun of running around all
the ins and outs of the alleyways in the neighborhood. Michelle Gabrielle Tinney,
my daughter, for a school assignment, wrote the following family experience:
[One hot summer afternoon, my father . . . went with one of his adventuresome
brothers to a large spooky graveyard. In this local city cemetery (Woodland), full
of the prominently deceased of the region, there was a gorgeous duck pond,
with a cute little island in the middle. The ducks, being practical, wished to avoid
curious, little boys, by swimming to the middle. My dad pointed that out to brother
(Charles), as he ran full speed towards them, without successfully catching them.
Checking around the cemetery, dad's brother saw a pile of debris, left from burial
work, and decided to resolve the problem by constructing a raft to float to the center
of the pond. As soon as the wood was bound together with ropes and properly
christened, my dad and his brother got their "boat", close as they could to the pond.
There his brother asked, "Can you help me get this thing into the water and give me
a push?" My dad said that he would, as he couldn't swim himself and was afraid
of the security guard; and so he did it. But, before that, they took off their shoes
and socks so they wouldn't get dirty or wet. They didn't want their Mom, back home,
to find out about their escapades. About the time dad's brother was floated half way
to the center of the pond, my father heard a rumbling sound of the caretaker coming
over the hill, (from the other side of the large cemetery), and warned his brother.
Suddenly a rusty old truck popped up, coming directly down the hill. My dad started
screaming, "The Grave Yard Caretaker's Coming!" At the same time, my dad started
pulling so frantically that his brother fell off of the raft and into the pond. My uncle
got completely soaked. Scared, my dad pushed the raft back towards his brother,
and he grabbed onto the edge of the raft, and my dad pulled him back to the shore.
When his brother was within reach of the land, he and my father were within range
of the angry caretaker. They both tried to high tail it home, but forgot their shoes
and socks in the process. My dad ran into a beehive trying to take a shortcut,
by climbing over the fence, and got stung in the process. His brother was chased
by the guard and was so scared that he began to laugh. The caretaker got mad,
and he had to run clear through the whole cemetery to avoid contact. But it was
of no use in the end. When the security guard found out he couldn't catch my uncle,
he just went back to the pond area and took possession of the "remains" they had
left behind in their haste. When they got home, grandmother thought everything
was "cool", until later in the day, when two little boys couldn't come up
with a reason for why their shoes were lost and why they couldn't get them back.
The Truth came out. They were properly punished for playing in the sacred
cemetery and for leaving their footwear at the graveyard.]

At times, while young, we listened to
Victrola records and a large sized radio.
In Ohio, I was given a 45 RPM Record player Christmas present, on Wayne Avenue,
manufactured by the RCA Corporation in the 1950s, as I remember. My family tried
to make Christmas time eventful; I remember receiving
Tinkertoy sets, basket balls;
bought myself a
Schwinn Bicycle, with side and front baskets, for newspapers.
I remember playing with an
Erector Set, as well as the joy of having Toy train sets.
Our family as a whole played Monopoly, Sorry!, and other board games, but mom
did not like us, or me involved with cards or
Billiards, as they were more directly
tied into local gambling or drinking spots in the area, which my mother despised.

David O. McKay was President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Year 1952
:
I remember as kids we had rotating cleaning assignments in the house.
In the front of the house; going upstairs, there was the upstairs bathroom,
and I seem to remember at least two bedrooms upstairs, with grandma
in the front bedroom with access to the upstairs front porch, which I remember
as being not in excellent condition. I remember receiving food and gifts - a watch
- for Christmas - from the school we attended,
Lincoln Junior High School,
because of our family's poverty. I guess it was a type of sub for Santa program,
which we greatly appreciated.
My [Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.] first contact
with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints, that I can remember,
was at Dayton, Ohio, USA. I distinctly remember attending
Primary, because
of the fun in taking the local bus across town to make meetings. This occurred
before I turned 12, (Aug 1953), while I resided on Wayne Avenue. I remember
Ward Teachers visiting our home located at 1420 Wayne Avenue.
Previously,
I was also sent to local Protestant Churches and received summer Bible
classes from them. This was because
my mother wanted me to have
"religion", and she at first, could not locate or obtain access to
the local
Mormon branch of the Church. I also on my own visited the local Catholic
Church
and studied diligently as a child all religions. One of the main 
reasons our family moved to
Utah when I was in my teen years was because
Mom wanted to have her children raised up at
the center place of the
LDS Church.
 Mom was dedicated to living the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
She became a member of the Deseret Book Club while in Utah and filled
the home with truth. I remember being invited and interviewed to join
the
Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir, in Dayton, Ohio. Untrained voices
were turned into a professional ensemble of national and international fame.
I went out in the neighborhood to sell Christmas items, to raise my funds,
in cold, soggy winter weather, but did not succeed, and abandoned my hope
to travel to distant areas, as choir members had to be self sufficient, to attend.

This document incorrectly states: (Grandma loved to sit on the upstairs back
porch and watch the cars go by. Cars fascinated her) As seen in the house photo,
the upstairs porch was at the front of the house, facing Wayne Avenue. I know,
because I used to go up and visit her there and view different car license plates.]

My brother Nelson was in a way a substitute father. I remember my older brothers
bought me Christmas presents on Wayne Avenue.
We had steam pipes to warm us,
(used to attach and extend old time antenna wires to, and pick up reception,
from local ham radio operators, or listen to baseball games of Cincinnati Redlegs).
T
he Cincinnati Reds officially changed their name to Redlegs in April 1953 because
they didn't want to be associated with the Red Scare. An Associated Press article
from April 9, 1953, reports that Cincinnati general manager Gabe Paul preferred
that the team be called the Redlegs, although the article admitted it would be
difficult for fans and writers to change their habits. Still, from 1953 to 1959,
the team was officially known as Redlegs. I was an interested follower of slugger
Ted Kluszewski. "He spent his first 11 seasons with the Cincinnati Reds and had
his most productive years from 1953 through 1956, when he put together home run
totals of 40, 49, 47 and 35. In each of those years he also drove in at least 100 runs,
including a league-leading 141 runs batted in 1954."

When we lived on Wayne Avenue, I had a newspaper route and delivered to 100 +
customers. I can still remember the cold winter days, with the Sunday edition of the
Dayton Newspaper in my bike holders, walking down the alley ways, because it was
too hard to pump the bicycle. I also at this time got a job hawking Morning Edition
of the Dayton newspaper, at a corner across from the
Dayton State Hospital, a main
traffic route for the men and women going to the
National Cash Register Company.
My greatest sale day was when the two famous traitors, Julius Rosenberg
and Ethel Rosenberg, United States citizens, were executed on June 19, 1953,
after being convicted of committing top secret espionage for the Soviet Union.
A girl by the name of Darlene, so my mother told me, joined the Church, because
she cared for me. I went to her birthday party, but she mostly visited with mom,
at our house, because I didn't care for girls at this stage of my life.

:
Our house was fueled by a basement furnace, with a coal drop there. I remember
vaguely, some heating vents, a kitchen pantry under the stairs; kitchen, where
mom would periodically allow
Hobos - Riding the Rails, passing through, to sit
down on the little back porch
and eat, outside. Front porch downstairs, cutting
front lawn and shrubs, front room a shop for used clothes provided by neighbors,
and with a commission for goods sold and fees to cover use of home as a show
room for goods presented; remember mom obtaining a neon "open" sign- 
cleaners; back room in front area, mom had an office for taking phone calls
for picking up dead animals and mom making a profit on taking phone calls.
Remember being spanked in the room when we were inappropriate as kids.
Hallway next to the stairs had old player piano and I believe that is where mom
taught me the little I ever learned about playing the piano.
I seem to remember
that there was a stairway that was separate and it connected to an upstairs
apartment and a downstairs apartment in the back; house was being somewhat
reconstructed; vaguely, repairing going on and walls stripped of wallpaper, etc.

I remember Doug Purdon (my brother-in-law), trying to take me once to see
the Cincinnati Redlegs play in Cincinnati, Ohio, but, didn't get to see the game
because we were late. I was a great Redlegs fan when young, once tried to bicycle
by myself to Cincinnati, but gave up because of length of the journey from Dayton.
I went to LDS: Hill Cumorah Pageant, in New York State; I walked over the hillside;
visited the
Sacred Grove and Smith Family Farm. My brother and I tried to see who

I remember listening to the song, The Yellow Rose of Texas, by the Mitch Miller
Orchestra and Chorus. The Jonas Salk polio vaccine was developed and licensed
in 1955, and I received thereafter, a shot, as part of a mass immunization campaign,
in the United States, promoted by the March of Dimes. I seem to remember sitting
in class when the first polio cure came out, as it was a very great accomplishment,
and I can remember going down to downtown Dayton, to get shots of various kinds,
as Mom took pictures of us at that time. I remember little of my Dad, as my parents
were divorced when- young as I was- my father did not directly relate to me. Clearly
I remember the great yearning I had for my father, and felt so left out of things, as
he was not home. I remember making a vow, that no matter what, I would never,
ever have a divorce and put my children through the same hell I went through.
Sadly, I married two women, LDS future wives, who did not love me, and cared
more for material things, and did not love me, or reciprocate, with the eternal love
I had for them. I remember my great joy when my father did visit us once, and my
going to the store, with my hand in his. I felt so proud to have him by my side,
even with all of his known imperfections. He was my father, and was intelligent.
In fact, "In early 1956, a group of RFI engineers in the Los Angeles area founded
an informal organization of interference experts. A steering committee was formed
to develop the aims and intent of the group. The steering committee consisted of

A. T. Parker (Stoddart Aircraft Radio), Charles W. Ketteman, Jr.
(California Electronic Services Company), and Fred Nichols (Sprague)."

Story - Memories of my Grandfather - FamilySearch.org [Research Note:
(Laine Alan Steel says: Later when he moved to Rancho Cordova, California
we went to visit him a couple of times. His apartment was right down near
the beach and I remember walking on the beach with him picking up starfish
and collecting seashells and sand dollars.) This is an incorrect memory, as
Rancho Cordova, California is east of Sacramento, California. My father,
whom I visited later on in life, once lived in
Hermosa Beach, California; his
residence was in walking distance from the Pacific Ocean, as I do remember.
The hell that I went through, was caused by the fact that I loved both my father
and mother at the same time, which caused intense rivalry within our family.
[Yet, my patriarchal blessing later said: "Honor your father and your mother."]
I remember my father coming to visit once, and he bought meat for dinner,
at a local meat store on Wayne Avenue, which my mother said was done,
so he wouldn't have to pay child support. My show of affection isolated me,
in many ways, from other members of the family; thus I got in the reading habit.
When my father once bought me a box of candy, my sister Sharon took it
to school and shared it with her friends there; I was left out with nothing to eat.
(Lane Alan Steel also says:
I don't think Grandpa was particularly religious
earlier in his life but the last several years after he married Mary Muegenburg
he became quite active in the Catholic Church. I remember receiving a letter
from him where he described how excited he was to be made a Deacon
in his Catholic Parish.
) From my memory, what sticks out in my mind, from my
conversations I had with my mother directly, was that Prim was turned off,
from joining the Mormon Church, because he didn't like the idea of giving up
on his drinking, as well as his deep apathy of paying so much tithing. His life

background in the Navy, as well as his Kentucky heritage, did not provide him
with the understanding, or comprehension of living the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In other words, he never was able to obtain a testimony of the LDS Church.
I always knew I was on the bad side of my mother, when she would declare,
"You are just like your Dad!" That was a poison pill I was given to swallow.
Dad, later on in life, stopped drinking, from my discussions with him, because
his doctor informed him, that if he didn't do so, he would die at an early age.
Dad had an intense drive for physical affection, that was contrary to my mother's
reserved disposition. My mother never taught me about the "birds and the bees",
because of traditions on her side of the family; intimacy was only for procreation,
and that in the dark of night. Mom was disgusted when couples publicly kissed.]

[My experiences in life have aided me in understanding the deeper experiences
of others. Mary and Joseph are an example. "At that time, the Jews were ruled
by Rome, and the rights of the royal Davidic family were not recognized." Joseph
was commanded to take Mary to wife, with a conception by another person. [God]
This initiated a step-father relationship, even before the birth of Jesus Christ,
with Joseph being denied marital rights until an actual birth occurred in Bethlehem.
Additionally, Jesus said, "A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country,
and in his own house." In fact, Joseph the step-father, was no direct blood relation.
The eldest son of Joseph was not Jesus Christ; thus, brethren who were by blood
relation, born to the father Joseph, would consider themselves superior to Christ.
They were obviously never truly converted, nor was Peter, until the resurrection.
This is clearly manifested: "His brethren therefore said unto him, Depart hence,
and go into Judęa, that thy disciples also may see the works that thou doest.
For there is no man that doeth any thing in secret, and he himself seeketh to be
known openly. If thou do these things, shew thyself to the world." Pure, open
arrogance is shown in the use of the word: "IF". They were blinded by self-conceit.
This directly manifests that His brethren did NOT honour Him, as eldest son,
or leader in His mortal family. When Jesus "talked to the people, behold,
his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him."
But Jesus said, "whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven,
the same is my brother, and sister, and mother." Note Jesus did not say,
do the will of my Father (step-father) which is on earth (Joseph). "After this
he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his
disciples: and they continued there not many days." A separate designation
was made between disciples and
The Brothers of Jesus, at this time.
"For neither did his brethren believe in him."

I can remember taking
Trolleybuses; making transfers to go to primary in the new
chapel in
Dayton, Ohio. Prior to this time, church was conducted at other places,
like meetings in homes, or at a downtown hotel. I can remember going to help
and participate in a small way, on the chapel construction. I was a participant
in some church plays and remember as a child, sitting in my mother's arms,
and we and others in my family, participated in a family skit put on during a party,
in the home of an LDS member. I remember
Ward Teachers visiting our house
and my mother getting us to come in from play and hear the messages given.
I can remember participating in a small way, as Ward Teaching junior companion.
I can recollect in one of my priesthood ordinations the promise being given me
to become an
Elder in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and it
impressed me so much, I have never forgotten it. I remember attending church
as a Deacon and Teacher and also Sunday School classes. I can remember some
conference times when the Chapel was filled to overflowing and it impressed me
as a child, to see what I considered to be such a large congregation. I was told
by a Sunday School Teacher that I would be a great leader when I grew up,
and that I would be either for, or go against the Church, and that either way,
I would have great power to affect the lives of many people, and that many
would follow my lead in either direction. My patriarchal blessing does say:
"The world will be better for your having lived in it."

I remember on a bus ride, seeing
Montgomery County Courthouse, in downtown
Dayton and how impressed I was by its elegant structure; remember shopping
and riding elevators and escalators in downtown Dayton and seeing lovely magic
of Christmas in the windows of the
Rike Kumler Store, in downtown Dayton, Ohio-
the snow and the tinkling of the bells. I remember
Montgomery County Fairgrounds,
at
Dayton, Ohio, and all of the rides and walks throughout the City- visiting the City
Library and going through all the tiers of books, of shelf upon shelf of records.
I tried to study Greek, but couldn't figure it out. It was all "Greek" to me. I remember
walking down railroad tracks and looking for iron to sell to scrap-metal dealers,
for money to buy candy, etc. I can remember Uncle John, who retired from his
Poultry House, Wholesale & Retail, in Xenia, Ohio, coming to take Charles,
for a two week trip of the whole western U.S., and me not getting to go.
At this time period, I was able to make it to the position of a Tenderfoot,
in the scouting program, under the auspices of the LDS Church. M
y participation
was limited because every time I would go out into the countryside on scouting
activities, I would have breathing problems, due to lung and throat and nose
congestion. I remember once as a young man, participating in a church outing
near the Indian
Serpent Mound in the Dayton area, and playing ball and getting
hit in the stomach, as I was pitching, with the ball hit back to me, which knocked
my breath out. Church outings were fun and I enjoyed them; we sometimes had
skits. I remember one skit in which one of the westerners was asked, What was
the hardest drink a Mormon would drink? The answer was:
"Orange juice in a dirty glass."

My grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Thompson, died on the
10 August of this year,
it being my birthday.  I remember grandmother well as she was living with us,
prior to her death in the upstairs part of our house at 1420 Wayne Avenue,
in Dayton, Ohio. According to
Zillow, 1420 Wayne Ave, Dayton, OH, currently,
is a multiple occupancy home in 2017, that contains 3,901 sq ft and was built
in 1880. It contains 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. When we lived there, I was
impressed by very beautiful column woodwork, that I remember being between
two rooms, in the main downstairs section, that was made of red mahogany.
The Story of Wayne Avenue in the 80's and 90's states: "In number 1420 Wayne
avenue, Mr. Joseph Wasmuth conducted a saloon ". This may account for ornate
workmanship, as I also remember there was a nice fireplace, in the back room.
Mary Elizabeth (Thompson) Green(e) died from strokes and poor circulation.
Grandma was famous for her "doilies". She used to cover all of the furniture
with beautiful lace cloth and then put more lace cloth over them, to keep
the originally placed
doily clean and protected. She was an elegant lady.
[“Xenia. Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Greene Rector, 85, died at 6 p.m., Friday,
at the Duke Nursing Home near
Bowersville, where she had been a patient
since July 28. Mrs. Rector, prior to entering the nursing home, resided
at the home of a son, John C. Greene, 57 Walnut Street, Xenia. She had
resided in Xenia and Greene County since 1883. Surviving are two sons
and two daughters by her first marriage; John C. and Herman Greene
of Xenia, and Mrs. Hazel Tinney of Dayton, and Mrs. Mamie Jump
of Williamstown, Kentucky. She also leaves six stepchildren:
Henry, Lewis, and Glen Rector, near Xenia; Ray Rector of Xenia, Jesse Rector
and Mrs. Iva Cook of Portsmouth. __ grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren,
and a brother, Grandville Thompson, near Battle Creek, Michigan.
Services will be at 3 p.m. Monday at the
Neeld Funeral Home, Inc.,
with burial in Woodland Cemetery.” (in Xenia, Ohio, not Dayton, Ohio)]

I remember going into
Woodland Cemetery and Arboretum, when a young man,
to sled down the hills, which was an exceedingly dangerous thing to do, especially
when trying to avoid tombstones at a high rate of speed. I remember at this time,
entering into High School, first going briefly, to
Wilbur Wright High School,
because my mother thought it was a better institution, and then having
to transfer to
Stivers High School, because we were in that boundary.

I believe I completed one year of school at
Stivers High School. I enjoyed it there.
After Stivers High School, I attended school at
West Carrollton High School,
in West Carrollton, Ohio, as we had sold the property at 1420 Wayne Avenue,
and moved in temporarily with Doug and Marilyn Purdon and family in their home
on the outskirts of Dayton. I remember at
West Carrollton High School, becoming
a member of the Latin Club and being asked to join the Science Club, but I did
not participate in their activities. I was asked by my history teacher to represent him
and the school in taking state tests for competition, but had to regretfully refuse,
as my Latin teacher had asked me to represent the school, which I did. Our Latin
Club went to the town of West Carrollton to sell cakes, cookies, etc., for the Club,
and I remember a cake for $1.50, that would not sell, so I told the teacher I would
sell it for $2.50, if I could keep $1.00. He didn't think I could do it, but I did- I gave
him the extra dollar, too. He was a wonderful teacher and I liked him, but he was
the slowest driver in the world, or so I thought, as we returned home from the sale-
I just about roasted from the heat, as he went 15-25 miles an hour, all the way home.
[For many years the foreign languages taught included two years each of Latin; it
was dropped as a language course about 1965; the Latin Club was discontinued.]
My school life was fine at West Carrollton, and I had many non-LDS friends. A girl
I liked was Nancy Shoemaker, but she was stolen from under my nose during
a party, I not being the aggressive or possessive type. I remember that I also
participated in the school sale of Christmas cards, and decorations, becoming
the top salesman in the class and school, even though my sales were cut short,
due to another trip to the hospital, this time for a
Thyroid Goiter that had to be
removed from my neck. [I was told by my mother that the reason I got it,
was because the area of Ohio, that we lived in, did not have enough iodine
in the soil, and she didn't know about it, and so, we incorrectly used plain,
not the
Iodized product, of Morton® Table Salt.

The Doctor removed the lump and still preserved both sections of my thyroid. As I
remember, my sister Marilyn received
Radioactive Iodine (Radioiodine) Therapy;
my mother rejoiced when she got pregnant, because it was feared her treatments
would make it impossible for her to have children; she loved to have parakeets.]
The reason I was so successful in selling items was because my sister and brother-
in-law lived In Kettering, which was a newly constructed suburb of Dayton, Ohio,
at
4829 Cordell Dr, Dayton, OH 45439, a single family home built in 1956. I could
offer residents a large selection, and provided direct delivery to their front door.
Both Kettering and West Carrollton were part of the
Dayton metropolitan area.

Year 1957
:
On the 27 May 1957, I was residing in Provo, Utah; 5th Ward, Provo Stake of Zion.
My Church records indicate removal by 10 June 1957. I remember my first
impressions of coming to Utah, especially the extreme dryness of the region,
having been used to the bountiful rain supply in Ohio. I can remember driving
down to the "dead end" of University Street, which has since been extended
into a feeder road at the south, and from Interstate 80. I was impressed
by the comparative smallness of the city of
Provo, Utah, as it related to
Dayton, Ohio. I remember seeing the great beauty of Provo Canyon,
when coming in from the East, for the first time- especially I was impressed
by the snow on the mountains, there and elsewhere, which I had never
seen before in my life. I can remember going over the continental divide,
with high drifts of snow, as we passed through, created by snow plows
cutting a road pathway. We stopped on the way and climbed up to the top
of the snow. It was very exciting for me, as I remember. I found it interesting
to look into the sky and remarked to others how the clouds looked so close
to the earth. I was also deeply impressed by the wooded mountain sides,
with the streams and rivers, dams and clear lakes. It was a trip I greatly enjoyed.

We first moved in, when coming to Utah, with my sister Sharon and her husband,
Harvey LaVar Steel and family. It was a tight squeeze. [LaVar Steel,
BYU - 1954;
in
The Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, June 2, 1957; p. 7]. Then, thereafter, we moved
to another residence, as memories of my brother, Charles Tinney, states: "In 1957
when I (Charles) was 17, Hazel sold our house in Ohio, gave up her three home jobs,
and everything she owned; left her friends and family, and took with her only what
she could pack in the car and Tom and me, and moved to Provo. Why? To save
our souls; to ensure we would have the chance to achieve eternal life-a mission
so to speak. Moving out here brought us the opportunity to go to BYU, to be close
to the Church and the Saints. Hopefully, we would go on missions. She gave
everything she had; not for us to have cars or houses or whatever, but for our
salvation. Once in Provo, Hazel tried to find work, but was unsuccessful in that
pursuit for over a year. We lived on the meager savings she had gotten from
the sale of her house on Wayne Avenue. We moved into an old one-room
school house that was
nearly 100 years old. It had a bathroom, but no shower.
Everything was ‘added to.’ Bro. Soward, who owned Soward’s Market
(grocery store), said that it was one of the first school houses in Utah Valley.
[Utah Gazetteer and Directory of Logan, Ogden, Provo and Salt Lake Cities;
First Ward Schoolhouse, 5th, bet. K and L, on the corner; Provo, 1890: Sheet 15]
He was almost as old as the town. He was a good guy. He knew we were poor,
and he’d save us oranges and bananas for us to eat." The house had bare floors
and had no carpeting, as I remember. At that time, Mom purchased a small
portable radio for me, and I was overjoyed to be able to have entertainment.
W
hen I came to Provo, Utah, I completed a few weeks at Provo High School.
This was not pleasant for me, because there was no Latin taught at the "new"
Provo High School, and I was unceremoniously dumped into the end of the year
program teaching first year Spanish. Therefore, I spent those final weeks feeling
totally stupid, because, even though both are classified as Romance Languages,
Latin, is essentially a "dead" language, with the translation of documents,
and I had no information to guide me, into any way I could comprehend
a class developing speech communication skills, nor, did I have the capacity
to adapt to Spanish word definitions, on such very short notice, and unskilled.

Our family came to Utah; then Mom briefly went to live with her son,
Norman Tinney, in the summer of 1957.
We took our furniture, on the way
down to California, and it was: "Bust or California". I remember passing
through the beautiful mountains of southern Utah. When we came to California,
we were stopping to cool off the engine, and to avoid vapor locks. The car had
burlap water bags, brownish, and somewhat porous. So they were strung along
the front fender so that they would act as a portable "water cooler"; current for
the time period. The water would cool the hot desert air, as it passed through
the front grill, and they would evaporate and be refilled, as well as we filled
the radiator itself, as needed. The car was not able to pull the load up steep
hills without overheating, and on one big hill where I got injured, I remember
it being like it was in the morning, the sun was very hot, and we got stuck on
the bottom. Mom stayed by herself in the car, to protect the goods. Wow,
knowing what I know now, she had a lot of guts and faith to do that. The closest
station is at the top of the hill (Interstate 15 South - Nevada to Barstow),
and the car is at the bottom, in the Mojave Desert area. Interstate 15 travels
generally southwest through the Ivanpah Valley, then turns west to cross
Mountain Pass. Interstate 15 continues southwest to Mountain Pass (el. 4,731 ft).

So here we are, two young men, with Mom in the car, in the heat of the day
climbing up this long, long road to an endless nowhere. We take our shirts off,
and there we are, and as we get up higher on the hill, the semi trucks begin
to gear down, to make it up the grade. At times, trucks are hindered by traffic,
and have to really slow down, because there weren't as many passing lanes
in those days. So we're sorta worried about everything, and lo and behold,
a semi slows down, with the hot silver pipe on the right, blowing off exhaust,
and Charles is trying to thumb a ride; and a trucker, who can't stop, motions
Chuck to jump on his runner, on the right side of the truck. Highly dangerous,
but Chuck does it, as the trucker lowered the widow so he could grab onto
the inside of the open window. Get my drift? I'm thinking about Mom saying
never to jump a train, as back in Ohio; remember the hobos? So I hesitated.
[Charles was always the adventuresome one, like when we went to the Ohio
State Hospital Grounds on Wayne Avenue, because he wanted to capture
some snakes, etc., and we got into some mud puddle we tried to cross, thinking
it was dry, but it was not, and as I tried to cross onto the other side, I started to
sink into the ooze. Every time I moved, it was like quicksand, and I was going
down deeper, with no end it sight. So I'm thinking to myself,  I'm in a crazy place
in the first place and this is my self made grave I'm digging for myself. Finally,
it seemed like forever, Charles broke off a branch and I had to slither on my
stomach, to reduce my weight, and be dragged through the mud to the bank.
And then of course go back and get my shoes. A side issue.]

But Chasbo is yelling for me to hop on, and the trucker begins to pick up speed.
So I'm running uphill with all my youthful might to catch up and hop on, because
I didn't want to be left alone in the desert, which was totally unfamiliar to me.
I grab onto his outstretched hand, and he is strong and pulls me up onto the truck
running board. I am exhausted, and I am afraid that my hands are going to slip
off the open window; but, being "smart", I grab onto the hand hold bar next to
the door opening. Chuck was holding on to part of the large rear view mirror.
Okay? Not so, and not thinking, I lean back to relax because the wind is blowing
hard into my face, to get more comfortable. This of course resulted in me coming
in direct contact with the silver exhaust pipe, and the pain and agony, the desire
to jump off the truck, but afraid to do so, and all this happened with my shirt off.
We get to the top, of which I believe it was most likely Mountain Pass, and there
is the service station. Charles hires a tow truck to get the car and trailer up to
the hill top, so that means we have to wait until he has time to cover his station
and drive the tow truck down the hill; then, the time for the car and trailer in tow, 
to be brought back up the hill; then for dear Mom to administer to my wound
and the tremendous inconvenience of sitting in a packed car and not being able
to sit back and relax. Because of financial restrictions and extreme frustration,
I believe my brother Charles, gave out a decree, that if it ever happened again,
he would leave the trailer on the side of the road. There was almost a half
of a day's delay, concerning that matter alone. Then mom was anxious to get
to Norm's place, because she couldn't afford to pay for local medical expenses,
and wanted to be there ASAP, as conditions allowed, to get me further treatment.


On the 26th of July, 1957, I was residing in the San Diego 3rd Ward,
San Diego Stake. This lasted until 8th of August, 1957, when, after having lived
for a short period with my brother, Norman Tinney, we came back to Utah, so as
to complete high school. I remember California well and enjoyed the State,
and have enjoyed going to California ever since that time. I like warm climate.
I remember having a small job cleaning yards while in California, and remember
it was difficult because of my age and non-Union status, to find meaningful work.
I remember Mom got distilled water in a bottle- she disliked the drinking water
so much. I remember seeing palm trees for the first time and I think I loved
the mass of flowers in their different shapes and colors, more than anything.
I can still see looking in the sky every morning, waiting for the
coastal fog
to burn off, so the morning sun would come out. I also thought the freeways
through the canyons were a pretty sight to behold. I remember in California,
the beautiful and powerful oceans, beaches, in particular near
La Jolla,
California, and will always appreciate my brother Norman Tinney taking us
to the seashore.
26 July 1957 - San Diego 3 [California] - San Diego 08 Aug 1957
- date moved. [we returned to the State of Utah. I enjoyed the trip tremendously,
overall, and was greatly impressed with the natural beauty of southern California,
as well as the desert scenes in between.]

By 23 Sep 1957, we were back in Utah, in the
Manavu Ward , part of the
Provo Stake of Zion. At this time we were living, in a basement apartment
of the Lyman residence, in the middle, north-east section of Provo, Utah.
We were very poor. I remember, as part of a Seminary program, giving
talks at different wards, as well as at the
Utah State Hospital. I remember
reading through the
Book of Mormon, and after sincere prayer, the spirit
strongly testified, in a very powerful manner, consuming my whole body
and soul, by the very power of the Holy Ghost, of the assured truthfulness
of the Book of Mormon, with a penetrating witness that I cannot ever deny.
I also spent these years, reading the other standard works of the Church;
in particular, I remember reading through the Bible, and read every name,
in all of the Genealogy contained therein, as I was genealogically inclined.
My mother bought books from the Deseret Book Club, and I read through
them thoroughly. I was always interested in reading books, from my
earliest memories. I remember the Lyman house was an old, two story
home, with a white outside, which was "
whitewashed". I remember eating
in the Lyman home during breakfast, and also listening to their records,
with the girls in the family, of which one was named "Joy". I remember
the grapes which were large and grew in the back of their yard.

Thomas Milton Tinney, [Sr.], was ordained a
Priest, on Sunday,
in the Aaronic Priesthood: 27 Oct 1957, by David Richard Lyman.
[LDS Ward Membership Records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints]

It was in this place that I first began to become interested in genealogical
research and at this time I asked my mother to assist me and have me do
the family genealogy. She said she had worked all her life trying to extend
the family genealogies and couldn't, but wouldn't deny me the opportunity
to try my hand at it. She provided me access to all the family records she had,
(Pedigree), including letters in large size purple pencil writing, from her sister,
Mamie Rosetta (Greene) Jump (1891 - 1958).  [
Charles E. Rowan, Jr., a Patriarch
of the Provo Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, mentioned
(#251) on June 23, 1957, at Provo, Utah, that:  "There is a great responsibility
resting upon you in seeking out the genealogy of your people.  I confer upon you
the Spirit of Elijah and promise you that if you are true and faithful, if you search
diligently, that the Lord will bless you and you will be able to seek out the names
of many of your ancestors."
[Now for Elijah. The spirit, power, and calling of Elijah
is, that ye have power to hold the key of the revelation, ordinances, oracles, powers
and endowments of the fullness of the Melchizedek Priesthood and of the kingdom
of God on the earth; and to receive, obtain, and perform all the ordinances
belonging to the kingdom of God, even unto the turning of the hearts of the fathers
unto the children, and the hearts of the children unto the fathers, even those who
are in heaven. Elias, Elijah, Messiah; Joseph Smith, Jr., dated March 10, 1844;
History of the Church, 6:249-254; also,
27 August 1843 (Sunday Morning).]
[I remember being embarrassed to death, by Provo High School English teacher,
Mr. Voit Roper, who publicly chastised me, in front of the whole class, when I
listed for a reading assignment, as "literary works", History of the Church, etc.
I had a much more favorable connection with Mr. Glen Patten, history instructor,
who sadly, on 15 Jan 1968, died from an apparent, self inflicted gunshot wound.]
This was followed later on in life, by many assignments to various LDS Stake
and Ward positions, including being an
Executive Secretary, and being called
to be a
Ward Clerk, as part of the Bishopric responsibilities.]

I remember going to the dentist at this time, because I disliked them so much,
from childhood, going back to Dayton, Ohio. Sometimes, while having my teeth
fixed, the numbing effect stopped before the procedure ended; it was very painful.
I was ordained  27 Oct 1957, in the Manavu Ward, by David Richard Lyman; [Dr.
David Richard Lyman, 34, of 248 Clark Drive, San Mateo, died after a brief illness
Wednesday, April 23,1975 at his home. . . . brother of Mrs. Frank (Janice) Cope,
Orem, and former resident of Provo. Dr. Lyman was born Aug. 5, 1940 in Kalispell,
Montana, to
Bruce Halls Lyman (1906-1983) and Josephine Wells Lyman (1910-1970)
David Richard Lyman (1940-1975) was a practicing psychiatrist. As a young boy
he moved to Provo with his parents, graduating in 1960 from Provo High School
with honors. He was president of the Key Club in high school
(Wed., 24 Apr 1957).
Dr. Lyman served an LDS mission to Austria. He was graduated with high honors in
1965 from Brigham Young University, receiving a plaque for being the outstanding
senior in his college. He graduated from University of Utah Medical School in 1969.
!n June, 1970, he moved to San Francisco to intern at Harkness Community
Hospital. He served a residency in San Mateo Community Mental Health Hospital.
He then became chief resident in charge of children's in-patient service at
McAuley Neuropsychiatric Institute. At the time of his death he was in private
practice in San Mateo. Survivors include his father and stepmother, Salt Lake City;
one brother and two sisters, Mrs. Cope, Orem; Anthony M. Lyman and Joy Lyman,
both of Salt Lake City, and Mrs. William (Pauline) Huhtala, Sandy. . . .
The Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, Thursday, May 1, 1975, page 4.] I was at this time
painting the outside of Sowards Grocery Store [
Wilbur Sowards, was the owner
and operator of Sowards' Market, corner 300 E. 500 N.] and David wanted to go
on a trip to Canada, so we took off one day, without telling anybody, and he
drove the car all the way up to the
Cardston Alberta Temple, in Canada.
It was a beautifying experience, as I remember seeing country I'd always wanted
to see. The
Going-to-the-Sun Road, in Glacier National Park (U.S.), on the border
near to Canada was terrifying, and I felt at times we might go over the edge,
with all of the passing cars and the narrow way of the road. I remember the dirt
roads off the main highway, in the City of Cardston- there David called his parents,
and they told him to commit himself to driving immediately home- which we did.
The Temple was very "solid", as I remember it, & I believe that some construction
work was going on in or near the Temple grounds. The road in Canada was not
as wide as the roads in the United States, and the Country had a more rural
appearance. I remember attending classes in the
Manavu Ward Chapel, & did six
or seven Ward Teaching districts at a time, to assist in the work. I also remember
visiting some BYU student apartments, and noted their sparse accommodations.
I tried at this time, to bring a girl who was a member of "
Job's Daughters",
into the Church, but the Sunday School class was so noisy, that she said
even if this was the true Church, she would never join, because of the lack
of reverence in the Chapel and class room. I attended Provo Community Church,
where she attended, and remember them passing the plate, which seemed
different to me. I also remember the very quiet way in which all things were done,

Year 1958:
On 25 May 1958, Hazel Kathleen (Greene) Tinney,
[the daughter of Jacob Hoover Greene and Mary Elizabeth Thompson],
born 13 June 1900, at Xenia, Greene County, Ohio, received Patriarchal Blessing,
also from the same Charles E. Rowan, Jr., Patriarch of the Provo Stake of Zion,
of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, at Provo, Utah; Blessing # 342.
Hazel had previously asked her son Tommy to receive a blessing. He, out
of respect for his mother, initially refused to do so, wanting Mom to be blessed
first. Nevertheless, Thomas Milton Tinney relented and was given his Patriarchal
Blessing, # 251, by Charles E. Rowan, Jr., of the Provo, Utah Stake of Zion,
on 23 June 1957. Mom felt she was too old to need one.
After much further hesitation and with the constant pleading of her son,
[now Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr.], she finally obtained her blessing,
which aided her for the rest of her life. I, Thomas, attended
Provo High School
at this time; before and after going to California. 08 Jun 1958 -
Rivergrove 2nd Ward, West Utah Stake, 704 West 4th North - 15 July 1958
[LDS Ward Membership Records of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints]
By the 8th of June, 1958, I was residing in Rivergrove 2nd Ward, West Utah Stake,
at 704 West 4th North, Provo, Utah. Then, for a short period, after 15 July 1958,
my records went to the Sunset Ward, West Utah Stake, from 12 Dec 1960
to 14 Dec 1960. Actually, I resided most of the time in the Rivergrove 2nd Ward,
while at 704 West 4th North, in the home on a corner lot, owned by the father
of our Ward at that time, Bishop Arland L. Olsen. [LDS Chapel was located at:

Returning to my chronology, I remember helping to set bushes and do yard
work, on Rivergrove Ward Chapel grounds. I did a lot of welfare assignments.
I remember going to the Salt Lake Temple in the Seminary Program. I talked
at that time, among others, with Sheila Mary Foxon, whom  I later married.
Provo High School Seminary graduate, with Stanley Richard Gunn (1903-1983),
the Principal. "The new Seminary building south of the Provo High School
has six classrooms each with an office for a teacher. A library, workroom
and accommodation for a small auditorium or social hall is also included."
Item in The Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, Friday, September 6, 1957. I became
the President of the West Utah Stake Youth Choir, which I greatly enjoyed,
and remember a song we sang, in a Stake Conference, which was so spiritual,
that the audience- (it was sung after the closing prayer) - came back again
and sat down in their seats, to listen. I also at this time, baptized a little girl
into the Church. I kept her name on a paper; now lost. I was at this time,
the youth Stake Ensign President. Sometime in 1958 / 1959, we moved as
a family to 940 West on 5th North, in Provo, Utah. My mother had great insight
into the affairs of her own children. Once I remember when at 704 West
on 4th North, how, upon inquiry about the welfare of her daughter Marilyn,
she was impressed that she was going to have a baby. Marilyn never told
her about it, but Mother got down on her knees in the living room and
thanked God for the knowledge. Later, Mom got a telegram or notice
from Marilyn saying she had a healthy baby born to her.
[This was Karen Jean (Purdon) Kershaw, born 03 Mar 1959, in Dayton, Ohio]

I also remember Norman, my brother, visiting once and Mom telling me she felt
something bad had happened to him. She found out later that happily he had
escaped from injury in a car accident. Later, in my own life, I went to California
for a week, to apply for a job with the California Public Library System,
in Sacramento, California. It was raining and I was on a multi-lane divided
highway. A semi-truck went out of control and I did not see it as it was on
the other side of the divider, going west, as I was going east, towards
Sacramento, [Nov 1972] from the area of Davis, California. A car pile-up
occurred at the same time, in front of me, and I had the choice of going
around on the right or the left side, and I felt impressed to choose the right.
As I was passing, the semi-truck came over the divide in the highway and hit
the car behind me that took the left side around the pile-up. When I got home
my Mom mentioned during my departure that she felt I was in great danger
and had earnestly prayed for me and my well-being. I do believe in the power
of prayer and a Mother's love to aid --- though children be far away from home.
I also believe in the power of the prayers on Temple prayer lists, as once
I was in California, and feeling alone, when all of a sudden I felt the power
of the Holy Ghost strongly come upon me. I received a letter from a friend
a few days later and he mentioned in his letter (on the very day I felt the intense,
warm influence of the Holy Ghost), he had placed my name on the Temple
roll prayer list in the Salt Lake Temple.

I sang in the
Dedication Program, Aaronic Priesthood Memorial Monument,
Salt Lake Tabernacle and Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Utah, October 10, 1958.
I saw President David Oman McKay sitting afterwards in his car, on the grounds
of Temple Square, and I stuck my hand into the car and he shook my hand,
and I thought to myself, as I looked upon his face: "Are you a prophet of God?"
It was not until later that I got an affirmative answer, from the Holy Ghost.

following the graduation until the close of the regular school year, according
to Mr. Gunn. Graduates will be: . . . Sheila Foxon . . . Thomas (Milton) Tinney (Sr.)

I graduated from Provo High School when 17 years of age, on  May 29, 1959.
[From: The Daily Herald, Provo, Utah, Sunday, May 17, 1959, page 27]
In Provo High activities, I took the National Merit Scholarship exam and was listed
in the yearbook as one of the top three in the school. I remember a local civic club
honored us with a dinner. [Top Scholars Utah County seniors who qualified
as semifinalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition include three

Received applications from M.I.T. and
University of Utah- did not send them in,
but applied to BYU. My application was misplaced in the wrong drawer, as I
was informed by the school processing secretary, and I did not get an expected
scholarship award, in the Provo High School honor's assembly, at the end
of the school year. I was crushed and in shock, as I was told when I applied
that I would receive certain substantial aid. Instead, I received an after the fact,
insufficiently funded, cursory generic scholarship. I was totally humiliated
before all of my class friends and personal school associations.

I began attending
Brigham Young University, the year 1959-1960, and it was
a disaster. Due to financial complications at home, working cleaning buildings
at BYU, while still attending with too heavy a load at school and church,
I surreptitiously dropped out, without officially withdrawing, from BYU,
and entered a Utah National Guard Active Duty program,
Fort Ord, California;
finished six months training at
Camp Roberts, California.

fer was sealed to me for Time and all Eternity.
I especially remember the happiness at having Jennifer, all dressed in beautiful
white, being sealed to me, for time and for all eternity, across the Temple altar.
I remember well, the kind Stake President in Lehi, Utah, who, to assist me in my
Temple obligations, gave me part of his old temple outfit to wear and use while I
was attending to the ordinance work in the House of the Lord. I felt so very sacred.
I moved shortly thereafter to Orem, Utah, having gotten a job with the Orem P.O.,
as a mail clerk-carrier. I later was able to obtain regular Route 6 designation, after
performing a multitude of tasks throughout the office, delivering mail from one end
of the city, to the other, performing all types of clerical work, from sorting mail on
all individual routes, delivering mail on all individual routes, as well as being clerk
at the front desk and having to meticulously account for all of the funds I received.
I had to pass time and quality sorting exams, maintaining at least 95% accuracy.
I soon found out, however, that 100% accuracy, sorting and delivery was expected.
No one ever wanted to have one single miss delivered item or late check, or error.
I had to essentially memorize the whole city layout, becoming a jack of all trades.
This was excellent background experience, in doing practical genealogy research.

In this time period, in Church, I was Executive Secretary over Home Teaching,
and a financial supervisor for the building of the new 10th Ward Chapel. I was
Ward Clerk, with oversight responsibilities for statistical, historical, welfare
and all other clerks and secretaries, placed under my jurisdiction. I attended all
Bishopric meetings, presided over by the Bishop Arnold Jack Fausett (1923–2001);
obituary is found in Orem-Geneva Times, Orem, Utah, Wednesday, 07 Nov 2001,
page 5. One of the Bishop's counselors said I would someday become a Bishop
in the Church. This reminds me later of a Patriarch in Provo, Utah, who once
said, in a Sunday School class I was teaching, that I would one day become
a Patriarch in the Church. These, I remembered distinctly, because it was so
"out of the blue". I also was Aaronic Priesthood Advisor to Deacons and Teachers,
and taught in the Sunday School and in Priest's Quorum. I was also called upon
to lead music in general ward priesthood meetings. During this time, engaged
in Ward Fellowshipping, a new non-member family moved in, and were later
baptized by the 70's, the home missionaries of the Stake. I also had the privilege
to baptize one young man, whom I had visited during home teaching, or ward
teaching, so called. Our home was graced with a dog, who had one surviving
pup, and the children and the dog played together.

I remember the cold and depressing day, when I was delivering mail on a route,
in Orem, Utah, as I heard that our President Kennedy was assassinated,
on 22 Nov 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

Dr Robert Edward Daggy - A Tribute.]
Route One, New Castle, Indiana 47362
To: Mr. Thomas Milton Tinney, 53 East 400 North, Orem, Utah 84057
Dear Tom, I received your long and interesting letter with all its enclosures.
Let me tell you a bit about myself before I get into the matter of genealogical
data. I am single, graduated from Yale University in 1962; did a year of graduate
work at Columbia University in the Department of Chinese and Japanese; spent
two years as Assistant to the University Archivist at Yale; and will start my second
year of teaching at Darlington School for Boys in Rome, Georgia in September,
teaching both American and Asian History. . . . Signed: Sincerely,
Bob
Robert Edward Daggy (1940–1997)
(from page 2) There is in existence an old MS compiled in the 19th Century
(by Daniel C. Himes) to trace his wife's ancestry through the female line
to one John Hyde. The reasons for having this done are somewhat hazy;
Franklin Godfrey Linn (1867–1923), Barbara Ellen Himes (1871–1939)
Daniel Clark Himes (1849–1910), Martha Jane Thompson (1850–Deceased)
Jesse Thompson (1813–1873), Joanna Wright Birdcell (1823–1879)
[So I am going through all of this material and I begin rechecking all family
records out, and go into the FamilySearch data files, and find all this "trash"
added to our pedigrees. This is not making me happy. After I have noted that,
I check what files I have left, in my possession, and I find among other things,
the ARCHIVE RECORD stamp on an old family group sheet for none other than
the said JESSE THOMPSON, my said and known 2nd great grandfather. And I
see, with the old LDS Temple stamps that were used, (remember the little date
rubber stamps they used); there is Baptized: rubber date stamped 28 APR 1965,
and Endowed: rubber date stamped 14 OCT 1965, and the Sealed to Husband:
18 APR '66 SL. So to make a long story short, I'm upset, because in my brief look
at the FamilySearch Family Tree, this and other TOW, or temple ordinance work
is missing, all or in part, in the records. Now either someone is doing a lot of
sloppy transcribing of records from ARCHIVE RECORD to Tree, or there is a mole
or moles within the system. Oh Boy am I unhappy about that! . . . If someone is
removing sealing data, and / or it is not being entered properly, then that means
tons of money and time and effort are being wasted by LDS Church Temple
recommend holders. Bad! Millions of hours of time, wasted talent and financial
means have already been lost in the past, with computerization duplication,
because "about dates", etc., don't register the same as an exact date; etc. . . .
When I was younger, I was the "Family Representative" for the whole family.
You can still see this on old records, with my name and address being the person
submitting the sheets. My relatives contacted me, and I got data to submit and did
coordination. This stopped all the duplication. Opinion: Church needs to go back,
and automatically assign eldest worthy living son or daughter in families, as new
family representatives, placing order back into the process: clearing temple work.
[All that DNA samples do is muddy the water & add more degrees of uncertainty.
It can never be forgotten, from a professional genealogical research standpoint,
that Jesus Christ showed unto the
Brother of Jared all the inhabitants of the earth
which had been, and also all that would be; and he withheld them not from his
sight, even unto the ends of the earth. Also, all things shall be revealed unto the
children of men which ever have been among the children of men, and which
ever will be even unto the end of the earth. DNA samples: a needless distraction
of multi-layered conjectures, based upon false man made evolutionary atheism.]
If all these worthy individuals were placed under jurisdiction of Stake Patriarchs,
and by blessings, given a special conferral of the Spirit of Elijah; and, the missing

go forward in a very mighty way; unstoppable. There is much envy in the world,
and half of the Church, the foolish virgins, both male and female virgins, have it.

She was born in the Provo Hospital, Provo, Utah. I was called to a position
on the Stake Sunday School Board. Special things to remember, were:
kite flying with the children; building a swing in the back yard and playing
with the children in the irrigation water; having fun with our German shepherd dog;
trips in the summer to the local canyons (I loved the outdoors as much as my health
would allow - climbed once to the top of
Mt Timpanogos- still remember the beauty
of Emerald Lake); seeing children do well in school and church and displaying their
good handiwork; the great joy of blessing all of my children at Church after their
birth into the world; purchase of a set of encyclopedias for children and reading
to them out of the encyclopedias and seeing how well they could memorize facts /
information; getting so many family names for the Temple and the Ward as a group
doing Temple Ordinance work together in the Salt Lake City House of the Lord.

Andrew Thomas Tinney, baptized: 10 Apr 1971, by Frederick Charles Foxon
Andrew Thomas Tinney, confirmed: 11 Apr 1971, by Frederick Charles Foxon
[My father-in-law, Frederick Charles Foxon, had a twisted logic about family
affairs. He was solidly British, and loved the Americans, for saving England,
during World War II, and had been a British Police Officer, one of the
Bobbies.
He had been greatly respected in his home country, and was glad for his good
employment at Brigham Young University, but didn't feel the same respect here,
that he once had, before he came to the United States. He thought American
Service men were inherently immoral, due to his experiences during WW II.
When my mother raised red flags about my dating his daughter, because she
wanted me to go on a mission, he took great umbrage and felt insulted. So I
was in a war zone between a mother that I loved, and a girl that I was highly
attracted to and admired, with zero understanding about physical relationships.
I knew what Church standards were, from reading Deseret books, but had no
understanding on how to deal with my own feelings, on a personal level. I
didn't really even understand where babies came from, and by transference,
was taught to hate myself, because I still loved my own father. In fact, mom
wrote to me, in a letter dated Jan 1972, that: "As for Prim I have no thoughts
at all for him. I feel as though I never met him. Remember we were never
sealed and the divorce made us as strangers. I am quite satisfied to remain
that way." Loss of my mother's love and affection was devastating, and I
once dreamed of seeing me going to the Foxon home, and it was covered
all over with dark black clouds that were coming down into the windows.
I didn't understand the meaning of this warning, and my personal Priesthood
leadership was through the father of the daughter I was dating. Supporting
his daughter, he allowed me to sleep in his home, with his daughter. This did
not end well, and when I married his daughter, my mother refused to attend
our wedding, and I suffered from extreme mental anguish, or anxiety. Then,
when my later relationship with his daughter soured, because I was sick
and tired of suffering physical pain from delivering mail in all types of weather,
in Utah, and I wanted to go into business as a genealogist, he took over all
the affairs of my family, and through his daughter, I was instructed to deplete
my accumulated pension funds, pay off all of our debts, and had my bank
account restricted. Then I was told multiple times to get out of his daughter's
life, including his personal threat that if I ever tried to see my children again,
he would gladly take my life and be willing to spend time in Utah State Prison.]

Rivergrove 1 Ward - West Utah Stake -  On 07 Apr 1971, I am noted in the Church
records, to be residing at 865 North 500 West, the King's Arms apartment complex,

cornerstone laying, on 21 May 1971,
with
President Joseph Fielding Smith, presiding. He began his speech outside,
and a wind came up and blew his paper off the podium; spoke extemporaneously.
I contributed to its construction, in a funding drive that was held at my former ward.
In the same year, on 06 Jun 1971, I became a member of the BYU 76th Ward -

Letter from my brother Norm (Norman K. Tinney), dated 10 Jan 1972 - Dear Tom -
Sorry we have not kept up on our correspondence with you. The years of absence,
distance, and the rush and press of my immediate life situation seem to have made
me unfit to be called a human being when it come to the way I treat my own family.
I really neglect them. We are very busy people here though we would be hard
pressed to prove our projects are always the most worthwhile. I'm teaching
in high school now - It was Jr. High before. I still have English for the foreign born,
Reading bi-lingual, and Thelma and I have a very small private Spanish class
we run as a favor for some friends and to keep in practice. We are always busy
at home trying to improve it or at least to keep it erect. Fortunately I can get
some inexpensive labor from across the border. We're always looking
for possibilities of launching into something profitable in Mexico
but in a very small way and with nothing very serious & or remunerative
going on at the moment. I remain a resident of the Jack Mormon ghetto
and even my service attendance has fallen off sharply this year. Thelma does
a lot better with both attendance and relief society now that she has her own car
and doesn't have to depend on me so much. She continues with her night school
classes to get the high school diploma here. I hope she gets into some university
class this year. We have no great desire to get her citizenship papers because we
would lose some important advantages in Mexico like owning property and I see
no advantage to be gained here at the moment. I hope that you are very happy
together with your lovely wife whom we are most anxious to meet personally.
I am enclosing a check for my copy of your book which I am anxiously awaiting
plus a few dollars I hope will help defray in some small way
those many expenses incurred in gathering data. With love and wishes
for a happy and prosperous 72 - Your brother Norm

Journal Entry: 29 Oct 1972 - Sunday  It is snowing today. I had a dream last night
of going to a strange LDS chapel, that is, not my home ward, but one I recognized
as being in Provo. There was a great press of people moving from room to room.
I went into the cultural hall and there was a rummage sale going on. I saw an old,
tattered Book of Mormon being sold very cheaply. I opened the fly leaf and on the
book page were Foxon names and I was impressed it belonged to my first wife's
parents, though some of the handwriting was mine. I was in the process
of purchasing the book for the value of who had possessed it; I then awoke.
I went down to Orem, and visited my children, Jennifer, Andrew, Phillip,

Journal Entry: 26 Oct 1973 - Friday  It was a great desire of my heart today to see
my child, Sylvia May Tinney, on her 7th birthday. I had a dream this morning,
that I was flying through the air, as well as swimming in deep water.  I wondered
what it meant, and inquired of the Lord. My thoughts were drawn back to the early
History of the Church, as I had read them and studied them out in my mind, before.
I was given to understand, as noted in: Quiet Slumber: Revelation through Dreams,
“To dream of flying signifies prosperity and deliverance from enemies. To dream
of swimming in deep water signifies success among many people, and that the word
will be accompanied with power.” (I once dreamed that I was on a ship in a terrible
storm, a dreadful storm, and wanted to jump ship out of extreme fear, but I could
not swim, so I hung on to the center mast of the ship. I could not see beyond rails
around the deck, and had no idea where I was, or where I was being propelled.
After a long time, the fury of the storm broke, and the skies cleared. I looked out
and around, and to my shock and amazement, the ship was safely and solidly
anchored in a secure dock, on the shore. I interpreted this to mean to follow
the Presiding Prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints;
to never let go of his direction and leadership, and never leave the Church,
because my only safety in life was within the confines of the good ship Zion.
Another time, I had the most beautiful, indescribably
glorious dream I think
I have ever had, in which I saw a great and marvelous ship sitting in a cliff cove,
in the middle of a massive waterfall, with glorious lights and signs and wonders
in the heavens above, and impressive scenery in the surrounding landscape.
I felt a great sense of
Joy
, just to look at the scene, and was amazed at how
steady the great ship was, in the middle of this massive waterfall, and all was calm.)

the current state of affairs in your city. I note there is a constant theme both in your
editorials and reader's comments to preserve the ideals and principles of the past
which has made our state and nation great. The main purpose of the Sons of the
American Revolution is to preserve the ideals and principles of those dedicated

We do this in the fellowship of a congenial and distinguished body of men
of common ideals and heritage, and seek to take part in the social and patriotic
activities on local Chapter, State and National levels. . . .

something I have wondered about. Can you send in a name of a non relative?
What I have in mind is the brother of my sister's husband. I know his birth date
because he was my first boyfriend and he told me. His name was Ross Jump
and he was born Sept. 14, 1899. I think that is right, but it could be 1888.
A friend of mine in Xenia wrote to me that he had died. I believe it was in August.
If that is 1975 of course it would have to wait a year. . . .

shows 1,351 names have been submitted.

Bountiful Thirty-Third Ward Beacon, November 1976, page 6,
under Genealogy Section . . . November 7th will see the start of another
genealogy class. The success and added genealogy work resulting from
the last two classes must be credited to Brother Tom Tinney. His teaching
technique is individual involvement. It has certainly resulted in a great
increase in name submissions for temple ordinance work. Our thanks to
Tom and the faithful follow-up of his students. To give ward members
a better idea of the success of the genealogy program it is pointed out
that the 1976-77 Stake goal for genealogical names to be submitted
(per ward) is 1,000. For September 1976 the Thirty-Third Ward exceeded
its yearly goal by 279 names. In one month we submitted 1,279 names.
Letter: [This class is based on the One-To-One concept of Priesthood help,
and it is expected of each member of the genealogy class to assist others,
who have less knowledge of basic genealogical research procedures.
This will make it possible for the class instructor, Brother Tinney, to spend
individually more time on your advanced research problems.]

Note by Thomas Milton Tinney, Sr., dated 14th and 15th Aug 1977:  
Written from notes taken while visiting my mother residing at 627 2nd 
Avenue, Salt Lake City, Utah, at the home of her son's family:
Charles and Patricia Tinney.  "At this point, the conversation became difficult.
My mother [Hazel] is dying from cancer which is, with other afflictions,
such as loss of one eye, deteriorating bones and muscular control, causing her
great pain and suffering.  She is under heavy sedation to control the pain
in her body. Tonight she spilled her juice and I had to hold her up while walking,
to keep her from falling over on the floor."
HAZEL KATHLEEN GREENE TINNEY HISTORY BOOK  pg 49
In great sorrow I visited my mother in the LDS Hospital on the 28th August 1977, in
Salt Lake City, Utah. Mom is in a critical, semi-conscious state approaching death.
She has an oxygen mask on and was shaking with chills. When I was there,
the nurse tried to get her to grasp her hand but there was no response.
When I talked to her, she could not open her eyes and her only recognition
was when I loudly whispered into her ear: "Mom, I love you,"
and "This is your son Tom." Then she slightly moved her head.
I placed my hands upon her head and blessed her that the Peace of Christ
would attend her at this time and that she would go to sleep in the Love of God
and come forth in the perfect purity of her soul- that her life would cease
on this earth as she had proved true and faithful in all things acco
rding to her
ability and knowledge  and that she would rise to a glorious resurrection,
in the World to come- that her life might now be taken, that she might suffer
no longer the agony and pain of a cancer diseased body.

Food queries, by Donna Lou Morgan, Tribune Food Editor - Section 6 H,
The Salt Lake Tribune Home Magazine, Sunday, October 28, 1979]

I started off as a child, using ink wells and quill pens, as I was shown how
they were used in grade school, using ink wells and ink pins in desks, akin
to those I've personally seen from the observation gallery in the U.S. Congress,
when I visited and toured there once; I was taught how to use an abacus,
which was interesting, and an adding machine with removable paper rolls,
did basic math, to learning algebra, with the now discarded
slide rule,
which I always disliked to use, learning trigonometry and geometry,
then on to calculus and statistics, with financial management, and getting
a BS major in economics and minor in math; starting into Computer Science
and being stopped because of so little time, having a full time job and part time
business to make ends meet, and cover all previous obligations, and going
to graduate school. I worked through hand held calculators, computers run
by IBM card trays, to machine readable tapes, to first time computer calculators,
to graphic display screens, to initial computer codes, like BASIC, COBOL,
and FORTRAN, to established current interface systems like Windows 10.


[Education suspended due to severe head and bodily injuries, and maltreatment,
causing loss of balance issues for many years, daily regurgitation - falling down,
intense
intention tremor, causing inability to hold heavy objects for a long time,
inability to climb on anything, without fear of falling, and irregular dizzy spells.
I went into hiding, for all intents and purposes, (and not knowing if I would ever
recover), spent years trying to cope with the situation, while submitting every
possible record I could find, in primary sourced records, for Temple Ordinance
Work; to be processed, in case I immediately died, (with the explicit approval,
from active staff members of the family history department, who were happy
to go to various temples and perform the work), in their behalf, joyfully.
And all these were submitted according to current, longstanding policies.]
I was acting upon the advice of Jesus Christ, the Royal Advocate, saying:
“There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was
accused unto him that he had wasted his goods” (Luke 16:1).
Parables of Jesus
The steward was a manager who handled the business affairs of an owner.
And apparently, someone had reported the steward’s reckless squandering
of his master’s property. The rich man had many business holdings, including
assets based on what people owed him. He sent word to his steward to prepare
a report on how his businesses were going. This made the steward very nervous,
for he feared he would be fired when the master found out what he was doing.
He said to himself: “What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the
stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed” (Luke 16:3). So the steward
devised a plan to ensure he would not be left destitute. He decided to use his
position of trust to negotiate some business deals for his own benefit. He offered
to discount the debts of his master’s business partners [DO THEIR ORDINANCES]
in return for their friendship and generous future considerations for himself.
They happily agreed, for the discounts the steward was offering were up
to 50 percent! [In my case, exhaustive professional work, 100% free of charge.]
Now comes the curious [nay, wonderful] part of the parable: “And the lord
[the rich man] commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely”
(Luke 16:8). Thus I desired to obtain Forgiveness. I have no true friends on earth,
except for beautiful wife Vicki Rae Chris Baker; family, and her lovely children.

I am very pleased to recommend Thomas Milton Tinney
. . . as a genealogical researcher . . . In my experience of 20 years of research,
I have never had anyone whom I would consider superior to him in capabilities
of handling research projects, filing, analysis, and other related activities.
Nevertheless, even as a Professional Genealogist, recognized independently,
on a worldwide basis, (being legally and lawfully licensed, as Manager & Owner,
of Tinney GenSearch Consultants
, since 1971 - on); my representation, as well as
my reputation, was disparaged, slandered and libeled by Mormon members
of the Brigham Young University Family History and genealogy community,
in coordination with local ecclesiastical leadership; to crush my abilities,
to remove me completely from my association with my own children; and thus,
to destroy all capacity to maintain economic viability, contrary to law & justice.]

New York: Simon and Schuster. 1985. ISBN 978-0-67149-440-7,
by Alex Shoumatoff.  Index Page 317: Tinney, Thomas Milton,
p. 92 - One Mormon, Thomas Milton Tinney, used it along with genealogies
in the Book of Mormon, to trace his son back for a hundred and fifty-six
generations to Ahman, Supreme Member of the Godhead and the father
of Adam. Tinney's work, however, is discounted by non-Mormon genealogists.
p. 286 - The creationist argument is based partly on a rejection of carbon dating
as a valid method of determining the age of organic material. “Carbon dating is
theoretically correct only if the atmospheric bombardment has been constant
over the ages; also, if radioactivity of the elements is constant,”
Thomas Milton Tinney, a Mormon who has traced his ancestry over a hundred
and fifty-two generations, right back to Adam, explains in his privately printed
genealogy, a copy of which I came across at the New York Public Library.
“Prior to Eve and Adam partaking of the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden,
there was no death, or radioactive decay. The atmosphere at the time of the
pre-flood patriarchs was different from what it is today. There was no rainbow
prior to the world-wide flood; also, the process of decay and degeneration
was slower as can be noted by the age or longevity of the early patriarchs,”
Tinney writes. “I Have My Family Tree Back to Adam and Eve” and Part 2

of the United States of America, both at home and abroad, will overcome the world,

seek to destroy the god given

in patriotism, and Make America Great Again: support President Donald John Trump.
