I see a Billingsley, couldn't make out the first name, but probably a brother or BT Billingsley, cause I remember BT had told me one of his brothers had been killed in WWII, another of BT's brothers was killed on the Railroad in Hamlet Yard in the Oiling pits I was working on the RR when he got crushed to death by cars that derailed and fell on the Oiling Pit he was in :cry:
