    I remember Uncle Sink (Seneca Primley) well. I was about nine when he died. He was married to Mable Funk which is the sister of my father’s mother. She was born around Liberty Mills, IN. I may have found proof that they were both from previous marriages that may have lasted just a few months for her and a bit longer from him.
    At one time I had a bundle of 12 or 13 letters Sink sent to the church hierarchy pleading to let him attain the designation of ordained minister. Somehow he had gotten them back.
    I do believe I have at one time seen discharge papers for his father from the civil war.
    I recall the Winona Lake house and recall how it seemed so old inside but in an interesting way. I go by the house a few times a year when in Winona and it looks exactly as it did when I was a child.
    I do recall watching Uncle Sink and a blood relative of mine both in a parade car and had both been in the Spanish American War.
