William L. Webster ~ Thomas Connor Nolan ~ Bank CEO Gene Gaines
Gene Gaines, CEO & President - First Professional Bancorp, Inc.
Professor Hainer's son, Eugene
, was in 1896 elected to the U. S. Congress from Nebraska.
was first married to Emma Myers (Gaines), daughter of Joplin auto supply dealer Bill Myers.
Gene Gaines, CEO and president of First Professional Bank of Santa Monica, California ($268 million in assets), has been appointed to the board of directors of First Columbia Bancorp ($610 million in assets).

Prior to the appointment, First Columbia
merged with First Professional

First Columbia Bancorp
lists Ranch Santa Fe Bank in San Diego County as a subsidiary.
is the son of Emma Myers Gaines (Myers Motor Company & Myers Auto Supply, Joplin) and the late E. F. Gaines (Joplin Cement Company).

Thus Bill Thurston Sr., who apparently was well aware of my family's connections, via Gene Gaines Sr.
, a mutual friend, schmoozed me for reasons Jeans, Thornhill, Dailey and Keeter were not likely aware of, as none of them was native to the Joplin metropolitan area.
