Old friend in Greeneville
It was my good fortune to be in Greeneville on Thursday and attending the weekly meeting of the Greeneville Kiwanis Club. They often send an interclub to Newport. We met at the downtown Presbyterian Church and listened to program presenter Marshall Harbison, granddaughter of Plain Talk Publisher John M. Jones Sr. She traveled on her own for several months last year in Thailand, Laos, Malaysia, and Cambodia. When I walked in starting to meet Kiwanians there was Ted Kinser. You know him as the brother of Eva Gaddis and J.R. Kinser, who is the oldest of the siblings at 91. I discovered that Ted had left Madisonville with his parents, Theodore Elmer and Lula Mae Kinser, when Ted was a child. They moved to the Salem community because Mrs. Kinser was an Ottinger. One of the children, William Elmer Kinser died about three years ago while living in Roanoke, Virginia. Ted told me he married Ruth from Lenoir City and they spent a good portion of their lives in Greene County where he built a career with Ball-Zinc Company in the purchasing dept. I was also reminded that J.R.'s daughter is Donna Jones and I mentioned her last week because she owns DJ's Antiques off Hwy. 25E. I must find out about the interesting antiques she brought back from her trip to Manchester, England and share this with you.
