Reminiscences on John by Christine Cole-Catly.
Of my uncles I know little. John married May, whom we called 'mad Aunt May'. I have a nightmare memory of being a spectator among a laughing crowd when she was learning to drive, and literally buck-jumping her small car across the Manners Street-Willis Street intersection. I think they had one son, John.
Reminiscences on John by Judith McKenzie.
Thomas Lynford (Uncle John), an infrequent visitor with wife May and small son John. He a tall man, who did not relate easily to a young niece.
