  • Notes 
    • “The Bissell brothers were average sized and blond. George attended Miss Carrington’s private school and Austin public schools. An early employment was with E. M. Scarborough and Sons Department Store, after which he saw soldier service against Pancho Villa in about 1916. In World War I George joined the infantry and served in France for 26 months.

      “Returned, he was employed with the Walter Tips Hardware Company. He married Miss Daphne Heath, about whom no information is available, except that she bore George a son who died, aged about six weeks. George later married a Miss Adams, about whom again, regrettably, there is no information.

      “In World War II George joined the Air Force, but saw no foreign action. When he returned, he joined the Baptist church and married Dixie Daugherty, with whom he lived happily the rest of his life.” [10]
