Here’s a bit of filler from the June 15 1928 edition of the Toronto Daily Star:
Since the Guinness Book of Records was not founded until 1954, we have no way of knowing whether this was, in fact, a record. I also have no idea why young David would have wanted to do this.
A Google search for David Deweese turned up nothing. The Deweese surname seems to be reasonably common in the area of New Albany, Indiana, but I couldn’t find anything on him or anyone who was related to him.
