Grama indicated in her 1943 entry that they “took Billy through Greenfield” on their way to the funeral in Taft. A quick check of Mapquest shows that the drive to Taft is 99 miles. Greenfield is not on the way. The drive to Taft through Greenfield is 165 miles which make it quite a bit out of their way. It is a 3 hour drive today, a lot longer then. I wonder who Billy was and why they needed to take him to Greenfield. It looks like they just made it in time for the funeral.
