I hope some of this will help you, and my grand son took a course in college on photography an he has done a nice job so I'm enclosing you some of the copies. I'll mark them some way so you'll know who is who. Back again (2-3-81) after a couple of days, have been real busy helping my daughter-in-law. She is a Tupperware manager. This phone rings some times 30 to 40 times per day & there are messages by the score to take down on note pads. Sorry I've been so long getting back to you. My son flew home to get me. We drove here in my car. Francis, my d-in-law was in a bad car wreck, is why I'm here. She has just laid down her crutch 3 wks ago, but can hardly walk yet. Now for the pictures. I'm sending you some in hopes
2 you can use them. When I go home in the spring, I'll go back to the court house & get more details on the Brown's. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll find something on the Porters. Now for who is in these pictures. First one is Fleming Lowe sitting. Left to right: young boy Bennie b. Norma b. Friend, Naoma Grace . De Walltearess, Chester Arthur (checked cap on), little boy, Clifford Friend. Fleming Lowe, William Holt (my dad) 4 yrs. old, Mary Mollie Flannery, 2nd wife, holding Norma (2 yr), behind her Aunt Lillie b. Phillips, Uncle Tommie b.Aunt Effie b. Gullett. Picture taken 1896. Little picture Fleming L. I believe about the time he married Sena Porter, or a few yrs later. Dad told me he never saw his dad but one time with out his mustach, so > must have been when the picture was taken with 2 sisters & 2 bro's. I can remember well what he looked like. How sweet he was, so good natured. He always brought my sister Dorothy & me fruit or cake he would save from his lunch. Now J. C., I would like to know your full name and about your family. Also, what kind of information did Ella give you? Maybe if you can let me know what the other generations were you wanted to know, I can get help from Hazel, OK? I believe I have helped you with a couple of people. Have you written to Fred Brown Jr.? Well I want to send you some pictures of my family. Probably next letter. I'll try not to be so long in answer to you next time. Thanks so much for your very nice letters. God bless you ad your's. As ever, your cousin Annis. Please call me. Annis
