I left Haigler with my family and moved to Yuma, CO in 1946. My father was Vern Mendenhall, manager of the Farmers Co-op. I left Yuma in 1947 for college. Since that time I've been many places. I became an officer in the US Navy and a geologist in the oil business. At 83 I am the last of my family living. We owned the Buffalo Creek Fish Hatchery. Moved from it into town in 1938. Times were tough. The hiring of my father as manager of the "Elevator" saved our bacon. Mayme and Vern are buried at Lincoln, NE., my brother Maurice at Denver and my sister Phyllis at Woodward, OK. My wife, Ruth, and I are living at home in Midland, TX. We had two children. Our daughter had two daughters and our son had a daughter and a son. All are living.
There may be some around Haigler who remember the family if not specifically me. Gerald (Jerry) Mendenhall
