Howard and George Jarvis in the 1920s.


 

Brother Howard and Daddy


Daddy had no sisters and his only brother, Howard, left home at the age of 16. Daddy, only 11 at the time, was left at home with his father. Letters would come from Howard telling of his jobs, first in a cafe in Colorado, then in a lumber yard, and several other places until Howard finally landed the job as manager of a lumber yard in Shattuck, Oklahoma. Howard’s employer had him also take over a new broom-corn buying operation. Howard eventually quit this job, moved to Sayre in western Oklahoma shortly before World War I and started his own business of broom-corn buying, which is what eventually brought Daddy to Oklahoma. They were to be partners.
