  • Notes 
    • As told to Sandra G. Laws Gossett by Corine Louise Scott. William F. Laws contracted Tuberculosis around 1926-1928. Then his daughter Dulcie got it, then Thurman in 1930/31 and then Janice. Corine had a light case of it and was in the children's sanitarium along with Janice in Detroit in 1931. Thurman was in a TB sanitarium in Ann Arbor, MI for 2-3 years where they collapsed his left lung. After Johnie died, an autopsy showed her lungs scarred from TB also, but no one ever knew it when she was alive. After William died, Johnie sold the family farm to a family by the name of Ward. One son is William Ward. The Ward family were "hard shell Baptists" and went to the Oak Grove Church. That is close to where W.F and Johnie are buried. After William's death is when they all moved to Detroit.
