  • Notes 
    • Raymond said that when his parents divorced his step-mother did not want him. His mother had remarried, but her husband died of spinal meninghitis and she had a nervous breakdown. Therefore Raymond went to live in Church Hill on the eastern shore of Maryland with his grandfather & his step-grandmother, Annie Milby. Raymond Jr. graduated from high school there. Later he attended Georgetown University. While serving during WWII he was wounded in the Netherlands. When Dodie died Raymond married Laura who had been caring for Dodie. In 2002 Raymond wrote about his war experiences in the Battle of the Bulge at the request of Erik Gorman.

      Raymond has a grave marker at two cemeteries. His name was probably placed along side his first wife at Jackson Cemetery, WI, in ancipation of someday being buried there, but he is probably buried with his second wife at Fountain Hill Cemetery, AZ.
