It may help to know the context of Dorothy's 1999 "letter." Josh Refling (Dorothy's grandson) was in middle school and had to write a biography for an English class. Dorothy was responding to specific questions the kids had to inquire about. That's why you see a description of "first jobs," "popular music," etc. Josh did write a report but we felt the original response from Dorothy, rather than paraphrasing by Josh in his 8th grade paper, was more significant from a geneological standpoint.
