    Notes 
    • He used to do tricks. Run backwards as fast as he could forward. Tricks on his motorcycle. He was a police officer in Gulfport. Can't remember his title. And either he or his father invented the drink Dr. Pepper. He wrote the ingredients on a paper bag and thought nothing of it and his friend took it from him and the rest is history.

      "Grandpa was in law enforcement in Biloxi, & he and another man he worked with were the first motorcycle "cops" in Mississippi in the early days of the twentieth century when motorcycles were becoming popular as transportation."--Regina Meadows on Facebook, May 2012
