Dad tells the story of how one day Lewis Sawyers took one of his work horses to the blacksmith in around Bolivar, Polk County, Missouri. The name of the blacksmith dad could not recall. Lewis was having his horse shoed, when a man on a grey horse rode in and went to the back of the barn. He didnt come to the front where the blacksmith was and left his horse behind in the shadows. The blacksmith went to talk with the man and came back and said to Lewis "Mr. Sawyers would you mind waiting on your horse I have a gentleman back here thats in an aweful hurry?" To which Lewis said he wouldnt mind the wait. The blacksmith took care of the mans horse in the back of the barn, and when he was finished the man got on his horse and rode past Lewis. As he went by he tipped his hat and told Lewis "Thank you for waiting." After he was out of site the blacksmith told Lewis that he knew he was an honest man and that he knew that he would never let certain informations be known. And proceeded to tell Lewis that the man who had just left was Frank James.
Lewis studied this on his way back home, and believed it to be true as the way the man hid himself and his horse in the shadows behind the barn.

He was the teacher and I was the student with a lot of questions...My Paw J.L Sawyers enjoyed working on cars, lawnmowers, air compressors and anything else that had a motor on it. He was always taking them apart and fixing them but the sad part was he had a way of making them run better than they did before. My favorite memory is the one were he had a riding mower tore apart on the porch and I was out there helping him work on it. I enjoyed it because of the stories he would tell me and the knowledge I gained from listening to him. But that day we got it all back together and it ran like new again but then I noticed we had parts left on the porch. I asked about the extra parts and he just simply replied with they put those on there for the just in case... that was the day I learned you ain't always gotta have all the parts to run right.
