Brownwood Apr 9, 2019 by Doris Dickerson- PVGS Meeting was held [yesterday] at the Greenleaf Fisk House with attendance of 23. All were glad to see Clay & Audrey there feeling better. Business meeting was held before Richard Hodges presented a very interesting program on Greenleaf marriages to three wifes. He was a dedicated husband and father. After the death of his first wife, he married her sister that died in childbirth. He then married his third wife that outlived many. Richard told how [Greenleaf] became a stone Mason and built the present Fisk House. All enjoyed touring the house, basement, and attic. Refreshments were provided by Irene & Ed Galaspie.
