Coinkydinks – Part II

Not too long ago I mentioned a couple of interesting coincidences I have noticed while researching Chet’s biography: that his elementary school in Fort Worth was on Page Street, and that one of his grandmothers and one of his great grandmothers had been born in Joplin, MO.

Well, here are two more semi-coincidences:

1) Chet’s fraternal Great-great grandmother was Sally Ann Dungan; his maternal Great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Dugan.

2) Chet’s fraternal grandmother was Golda Mae Thomas; his maternal grandmother was Mineola Thomason.

And so it goes…

  1. Since we’re finally getting down to brass tacks around here, may I note that, according to The Cook’s Thesaurus, the mineola is a type of citrus fruit, a variety of tangelo where a tangerine is crossed with a grapefruit. Hope this helps.

  2. Did you know Minnie Mouse’s full name is Mineola Mouse? Mickey couldn’t pronounce it right so Walt shortened it to Minnie. Min didn’t care. Long as she got the cheese.

  3. “Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy. Kennedy had a secretary named Lincoln!”
