My wife's aunt, Edith Wells James, continues to search for the grave or any history on one of her uncles. Her mother was Clara Moler Wells, a member of the Molers in the Redding area. She had three brothers, George, Sel (Selma), and Ed. Uncle Ed is the mystery. Edith's memory is as follows: Ed was a long time bachelor, living on a farm in the Redding area. Sometime, she believes in the 1930s area, Ed was found dead hanging on a fence post. According to Edith's memory as a young girl, Uncle Ed supposedly had lots of money, did't trust banks, so kept his money in buckets with ears of corn on top to hide the presence of that money. She doesn't remember and she believes the whole thing was an embarassment to the family so was hushed up and not talked about.
Wonder if any one has heard this story and/or knows anything about the tale. I find information on George and on Sel, but nothing of record via internet sources for Ed.
