Janice Isabel Camp said this couple had one child who died about one year old, but Billy Joe did not know of it. Not sure where the baby goes in the lineup of children.

~The baby got sick and the doctor gave them some medicine for it, maybe sulfa. The father thought the medicine wasn't helping so he threw it away and the baby died. This is probably the reason Billy Joe never heard of the child, it wasn't talke d about.
