Memory's of Dad

In the 1960's and early 1970's Curtis used to work for two vending companies. The first was City Vending the latter Woodie Taylor Vending. Rumors have circulated for years that City Vending was owned by the and operated by the mob. Dad had quit working for City Vending. He worked for a couple of transport companies driving tractor trailer's  around the country and various other jobs around Fort Worth when he went to work for Woodie Taylor. Curtis and his friend's would go fishing or to the gun ranges on the weekend's. On the weekend that he died only one man OD Jones was going fishing with him (this was usual normally there was quite a few more guy's that would go). Mr. Jones had told everyone that he heard Curtis calling him, saying something to him that morning when they were out in the bass boat. He said he never turned around to see what he wanted, never heard a splash from his body hitting the water. Nothing. When he turned around all he saw was his cigarette lighter in the floor of the boat. We never saw him again after that weekend. For some thirty odd years people that I would meet would tell me that he had been killed or they heard that he had been killed. That OD Jones was a hit man. That City Vending and Woodie Taylor were in a turf war over the bars around town. Curtis's brother James Marion Argroves worked for law enforcement in Georgia. When he went home after dad's funeral he contacted the FBI and he was told to leave it alone. That more bad things would happen. All these years I still wonder was he murdered ? Or was it just an accident?  He's still in my heart and mind. I Still hear him singing  Old Mountain Dew and songs from the 60's Roger Miller, Marty Robbins ......

 Peggy Lois Cox:
Peggy Lois Cox was born in Kopperl, Bosque County, Texas on July 22, 1934 three month's after Leona Harkcom Cox had married George W. Brown in Johnson County, Texas. The Birth Certificate in Meridian, Bosque County, Texas has Leona's first husband John Bartie Cox as Peggy's father. As of October 2006 I have become  unsure of mom's father's  identity. In October of 2006 I went to the Cox family reunion in Blum, Bosque County, Texas. Peggy's aunt Lois (sis) Harkcom Cox and her husband Monte V Cox had told their children that granny Leona (pig eye) Harkcom Cox Brown Rector had had a affair with her sister Agnes (chigger) Harkcom Sanders Taylor first husband Raymond Sanders and that my mom,s dad was Raymond. My dad Curtis Argroves had  married Agnes and Raymond oldest daughter Elva Louise (dump) Sanders in 1948 and divorced in 1949. Louise had a little sister Betty Jo Ann Sanders Elam that had been told when she was growing up that Peggy was her sister by her mom Agnes. Jo Ann didn't know what to think of this!!! When I talked to here in 2006 she thought maybe her mom was just pestering her about Peggy because they where so close growing up. I'm not sure which man is her father Bartie, George or Raymond.
