Editor's Note: The only local Iva White I find was born in 1866 in Warren, Pa. I have no idea if this is the intended of Charley. I think he didn't succeed with his proposal because I can't find a couple with those names in the census.
I can't believe Allen had "words" with anyone and much less Will Rhodes who seems to be a comrade.
