"James Weslyn graduated from high school in Marceline, MO and attended the University of Missouri School of Medicine, attending there when I was in the school of nursing. Obviously, he is extremely intelligent.

His sister June worked for the Dept. of Social Services in Linn County for years as a case worker. June and her husband Leroy had two daughters.  They live in Marceline, Mo and Liberty, MO with their husbands and children. June died about a year or so after the 2003 family reunion in Kentucky with a lung condition. Her husband Leroy is a farmer."
