*This information about Milton Augustus Loring by grandson Richard Loring August 2006:
--He dug a double grave with brick walls, and flagstone walls.
--Grandfather also made his own casket, in fact, he made three. The first was too small. He gave it to a family that had had a death and no money. The second, the
pillow was too high so he couldn't close the lid with him in it. When he finally got it right, he had it sitting in the little alcove off the living area.
--The reason he made his own casket is, when he went to the funeral of a good friend, it was raining. When they went to carry him out of the church, they picked it up
and the bottom and the man were still there. So grandfather says "that will never happen to me!" His casket had all wooden dowels - no nails or screws, no glue.
--Now, as for Gabby Hayes, the night Gabby was born, my grandfather, Milton Loring, was downstairs visiting Gabby's father. When Gabby was going to Europe, he
had to have proof of birth in the U.S. to get a passport, so grandfather vouched for him being born here.
