Robert Leigh Kermott
Grandpa was an insurance adjuster during the great depression for Robert's Insurance Co. Percy was the "Voice of Safety". He would have speakers on the top of his car and would remind people when they were j-walking or other ordinances. He would tell them rather loudly. He had the usual Kermott sense of humor. I need to talk to dad more about grandpa. I don't know him well enough yet. Karen was three when he died so y'all can do the math!

Ruby Ethel Leigh (April 4, 1887 to Dec 5, 1984?)
Married on June ?, 1917 in ?.
Percival was a claims estimator for an insurance company in Milwaukee during the depression and was able to support his family well considering the rough times.
Percival and Ruby had two children: Robert ? (1924?-1978?) and William Joseph (1931-present) If dinner guests stayed late Grandpa was known to wind up his pocket watch and say, "I'm glad I'm home!" If they still didn't get the hint then he would go upstairs to bed.
When a salesman would tell him the price of something that was rather expensive he would say, "That would be cheap at half the price!"
Grandma was in a woman's circle at church and she told a joke. "Where does a ghost keep his sheets? In the sheet-house!" Nobody cracked a smile. Dad doesn't think she understood the joke.
