1@A Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2001 By Debra Coates Managing Editor It was a walk down memo- ry lane for brothers Dick and Earnest "Carlton" Droege last month, as they visited the town where they were born and raised-- Quincy. Dick, now 87, and Carlton, 83, visited the home where they were born, their child- hood home on Jackson Street, and all of their other familiar old haunts. The brothers, who left town after they graduated from high school, were joined in the visit by Dick's two sons, Roy and Don. Dick lives in Maryland, near his son, Don. Roy lives in Okla- homa and Carlton hails from Fair Oaks. Though Dick lives across the country, he keeps up with what's going on in Quincy, even writing a let- ter to the editor when he read an article in the Smith- sonian Magazine featuring the Quincy Library Group. Of course, Dick and Carl- ton are familiar with the newspaper because their mother, Lena Droege, was Dick Droege, second from left, and his brother, Earnest "Carlton" Droege, were in Quincy their old hometown. Joining the brothers were Dick's sons, Roy, far left, and Don, far right.
