From Sycamore. Had a brother named Rollie and a sister named Florence. Inventor of the "fish stretcher." After catching a fish, you could go by Art's place and he'd stretch your fish so that the fish would be longer, therefore giving you more bragging rights. The fish stretcher was such a unique idea that Gummer thought he would eventually make $40,000 with it. As a matter of fact, he was so confident that he would make that kind of money, he bought a horse and buggy, got married and sent a brother to barber college all on the strength of it's proposed success. But in the end, the invention did not produce a dime.
