My Grandpa weighed 14lbs at birth!  At least that’s what my Grandma always told me.  105 years ago, on October 5, 1904, James Thomas Willis, was born in Fayette, Alabama.  Tommy, as he was called, was the 3rd of 9 children and was a genius when it came to math and numbers.  My mother often talked about how impressive his ability was and when you factor in that he did not have a long, formal education it must have been amazing.

Happy 105th birthday, Grandpa!

Because I did not know my grandfather, I’m hoping to update this post with contributions from Tommy’s children.

Update: 105 Years Ago Today posted by Tommy’s daughter, Donna
