The sisters said their looked just as they thought he would, except for gray hair. , The sleuth who found Jay Grinols was none other than his own brother Bruce who operates the Riverside Market in Hot Springs.

Mr. and Mrs. Pearson went to Niagara Falls, and Highland, N. J., for their wedding trip. He is graduate of Forestburg High School and served in the Marine the name Grinols never was talked about. Colman's service record sounded familiar to Bruce and he told his wife he looked enough like him to be his brother. About the same time Jay had the same idea. One revelation from Bruce just about cinched it for Jay. Bruce told him he had lost the sight of his left eye and had two brothers who also lost left eyes. That was too much of a coincidence. Corps.
