Maurice SplawnMaurice Splawn died on December 1, 1933 of spinal meningitis. He was the son of Doyle C. and Nettie Splawn. In 1930 they lived on Poplar Street. Maurice's two brothers were Frank and Don, and he had a sister Novella. Frank remembers his brother was indeed a good ball player, and when a group of the guys went rabbit hunting and took guns, Maurice would only take a slingshot—and killed rabbits with it.
