From Ellen: “my Cousin, John Samuel (“Sammy”) Oram, who passed away with no children. Being childless was attributed to his being struck by lightning at age 17. He was drafted into the Army and was in the 82nd Airborne as a parachuter.”
Ellen’s family had moved away from Cleveland about the time of TOE’s birth and did not know of her existence until 2015. So the lighting had not had a long term effect!
Official death record says that Sammy worked in the ‘motor vehicle dealers’ sector.
