In 1971, his seven year old daughter, Cynthia Lynn, won the title of ‘Little Miss Firecracker’ and the Cape Girardeau Bulletin -in its issue dated July 8, 1971 - bring us on this occasion a little more information on her father :

" The daughter of Mr and Mrs. Larry Niswonger, owners of The House of Glass on Hwy. 61 N., is making plans to become a country and western star. She comes by her liking for music naturally.

His latest record is « The Mansion You Stole », and a previous one, « I Forgot to Remember To Forget ».
