Notes for Carrie Maude Batchelder:
Carrie's father or grandfather found some gold nuggets when he went west during the gold rush. Carrie wore the gold nuggets on a chain around her neck. Her son, Stan, wanted to sell them to pay for her nursing home in her later years, but one son, Bill, sold them and went on a vacation to Hawaii, causing a rift between the Allen brothers.
