Mary Hill What a thrill to see this photo of my 2d cousin twice removed. I have several letters she wrote to my great grandfather, John Wesley Witt.

Mark Bramlette Thank you for posting. I will call the family that has those original references now. The letter to Bertha I mentioned above has the date Dec. 12, 1948, not 1848. Bertha was born in 1872. Sorry for the typo.
