In the records of D.O.McComb & Sons, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, there is not the normal statement to be found about the payment of Minnie V. Kryder's funeral expenses. Instead, the record is marked with a mysterious notation, "TX."

"It must mean Texas," said the helpful, though stymied bookkeeper.

The only connection from Minnie in Fort Wayne to Texas was Zapata Oil, Hidalgo County, where Frank Kryder, Sr's associate Roy Hoopingarner retired. Frank Kryder, Sr. incorporated Hoopingarner Construction in 1937, and was its Sec-Treasurer. Its address was 215 East Berry Street, or Rm 225 Standard Building until 1967.

SSDI: Roy HOOPINGARNER 309-09-6228 29 Mar 1915 Apr 1984 Lewisville Henry IN 47352 San Juan Hidalgo TX 78589 IN

In June, 1953 the Carthage Hydrocol plant, Hidalgo, built with an $18 million RFC loan, was shut down without warning

Stanolind made arrangements to take over RFC debt of Carthage Hydrocol, Hidalgo, new company- Hidalgo Chemical Co.

Now what connection is made to Minnie's Estate #14518 in Allen County, IN to G H Walker & Company?

G. H. WALKER & CO. X00013390 Fictitious Registration Fictitious Active 10/22/1940

Note that the Walker Missouri Fictitious Registrations maintain the same number of digits as are in taxpayer identification numbers. This is also true for the concurrent corporate folio numbers in Indiana. It can be shown in numerous ways the nine digit numbers were and are cross-referenced.

14518 + 13390 = 27908

Frank's Trust #13934 + Walker Missouri charter #13974 = 27908

27908- 3612 = 31520.

Estate of Frank, Jr.'s SSN = 315203612.

I think IRS should have to explain this.

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
