      Jim, anything I send you can use how ever you like. Here is another one I mentioned before. We believe it is a photo on the farm of Millard and Rose Yates. We believe Millard, Rosa and my mother Violet as a very young girl, (under 13) are in this photo. The team of horses and the wagon could be the same rig that was used when Milliard left Indiana to move to West Salem. The farm was a West Salem property from what was told by my mother. We understand that due to some legal error what Millard thought he purchased ended up in the hands of others, to his great surprise and consternation. We have never seen any documents that deal with this farm or any other property in West Salem with Millard Yates or Rosa Yates name(s) on them. Maybe one of your relatives has some information that might shed some light on this "farm" and this photo. After having lost the West Salem farm Millard and Rosa, and of course Violet moved to Mt. Carmel, Illinois where Violet met Lyell Wigton Canedy and married. She was born in 1906 and married in 1923. My brother Norman was born 1926 and I was the 1929 Crash baby, December 24, 1929 Christmas Eve.

      I was the baby of the Canedy family. When I was in the first grade in school there was a Canedy in the each grade including seventh. When I graduated, there were no more Canedys in school Mt. Carmel. As far as I knew my grandparents Millard and Rosa were the only Yates' in Mt. Carmel. I believe I met one of Millard's brothers at his funeral, but to my knowledge I have no photos of other Yates relatives.

      Thanks so much for taking the time to fill us in a bit about your family business. Our Company, AXOXS, Inc. (Pronounced A-ZOCKS) came from the letters Accounting Xtending to Operations Xtending to Software Engineering. My oldest son Todd and I started the business in 1995. You can see what we do by going to our Web Site at www.axoxs.com. Most of our Revenue is from Systems Integration, but we do Internet eCommerce Hosting as well. We are Magic Software Programmers, an unbelievably excellent paradigm that is "table driven", and can integrate most any existing software database systems ten times faster than those who have to write "code". We can do this with most any Platform, and end up with a more solid and reliable system than is usually handed over to Midsize businesses...($10 Million to $150 Million). Thanks again, More later, Don And Evelyn DONALD CANEDY, CFO and CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD Contact him at: donc@axoxs.com

      Donald G. Canedy is a co-founder AXOXS, Inc. He has served as Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors since 1999. Don has had a long and successful career in business management.

      Don taught in the music department at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale from the receipt of his Masters Degree until 1965. He then joined the Music Faculty at Indiana State University, but was there only one year before he joined CBS Musical Instruments. In 1978, he was honored by Indiana State University with the Distinguished Alumni award. Southern Illinois University honored him in 1998 during the 50th celebration of President Delyte W. Morris for creating unique traditions still evident at that University.

      Over the thirteen years that he was with CBS, Don was Director of Education, Project Marketing Director, and Director of Marketing for two companies under the CBS, Inc. banner. He left CBS Musical Instruments, Fullerton in 1979 for a career in Real Estate, and eventually owned five (5) Century 21 offices throughout Orange County, California.

      In 1984, he joined William C. Cobb and Associates as a Computer Consultant, while retaining his Century-21 Sunny Hills office in Fullerton. In 1988, after selling his final Real Estate office, Don became Controller for FGJ, Inc. (owner Frank G. Jacobs), where he managed $10 Million of Texas and California Real Estate in and out of Chapter 11. In 1992, having finished that job, he took the position of Vice President and CEO for Kendon Industries, Inc.

      Mr. Canedy earned his BS and M. M Ed. Degree from Indiana State University, plus 30 hours toward a Doctorate.
