Information from Doris Attwood, granddaughter of Alfred J A Jolin and Sarah Simpson, and daughter of Alf Jolin:
“[Sarah’s] life was made easier by her brothers Quill and Harry in that they gave her a weekly allowance for herself and children. Inevitably, Grandpa benefited by their generosity and relieved him of making provision, which I suppose was just as well, given the fact that he was no longer able to follow his trade as a brush maker, having had two fingers chopped off from his right hand by irate fellow card players when he was caught cheating. (1997 letter)
Re a photo of Alfred: “taken from a postcard size group at a convalescent home where he was recovering from an operation for stomach cancer. He died some two years later …… his right eye is clouded (cataract).”
