  • Notes 
    • As reported by her daughter Barbara Schweppe Hanes: Mother and Harold (her brother) grew up in Hale (Mo) after moving to the new house in town in 1910. The two seemed very close and she was so proud of him when he went to WWI. Mother was very athletic and beautiful according to her pictures. She graduated from high school when she was 16 and went to Chillicothe Business College. Though always mad because she didn't have a college degree, her education paid off for her. After graduation, she answered an ad from a lawyer in Tribute, KS and went west for her fortune. What she found besides a position that she loved as legal secretary, was a high school football coach and teacher.(John Schweppe) They were married in 1922 and moved to Deming NM. Mother worked for the State until Kay (John Kerwin) was born in 1925. In 1927 they moved to Alamogordo, where daddy was high school principal. They returned to MO every summer to visit relatives. We moved back to Hale after the death of grandmother (Julia Otey Cleveland) in the early 30's. In 1936 we moved to Parsons KS where we lived until 1943. Mother worked at a bank in Parsons and loved it. She did not work in Fort Scott until daddy died in 1949. She then went to work as the superintendent of schools secretary until 1952 when she became City Clerk where she remained until she retired in 1975. She taught classes on City Clerk-ship at KU each year and was well regarded - was in Whose Who of American Women. She began to be comfortable in retirement but had a stroke one year later. After some nine months of intensive care she was well enough to return to Fort Scott and live 9 more years until she died on my 50th birthday. (1984) End of Hanes report. A note by her nephew Harold W. Cleveland: I regret that I had little contact with aunt Vera. What little time I had in her company was memorable; she was kind and generous and was, in my opinion, a strikingly handsome woman - I always thought of her as my "beautiful aunt".
