"CUTS HAIR FOR FIFTH GENERATION OF COX FAMILY"

'George Shullaw, Wyoming barber for 30 years believes this a record in barber trade'

-When he cut the hair of two year old Cynthia Cox January 9, George Shullaw, Wyoming Barber, believes that he set a record that few if any barbers in this country can touch. She represented the fifth generation of the Cox family to have their hair cut by him. George doesn't remember exactly when he first cut off the hair of Simon Cox, Cynthia's great great grandfather, since he wasn't thinking about setting a record in those days but he believes that it was about 36 or 37 years ago. Since that time he has cut the hair of Cynthia's great grandfather, Myron L. Cox; Cynthia's grandfather, M. Ralph Cox; and that of her father Loris Cox. George Shullaw went into the barbering business with his father back in 1910 and has been cutting hair in Wyoming ever since then with the exception of about two years when he lived in Pontiac.
