      From: Donmanion ; Sent: Saturday, December 17, 2011 9:08 PM; Ron, Peter Edward lived with or next door to Tom & Alberta Charters. Also Alma Rankin Lived next door to them as well. I can remember going to Tom & Alberta's house as a kid. I remember that Peter Edward lived on south 3rd street in Tere Haute. There was 2 or 3 steps near the side walk up to the yard and then 3 or 4 steps up to the porch. There are only a couple of blocks along that street that has that feature. Attached is a picture that we took this summer of the house listed in his obit. Thanks for the info on Grandpa. Don
