Dear Brother Gregory:


†† Thank you so much for printing my letter and for the Craighead data. I have identified the Smith County Craigheads. The Peter Craighead, listed in last week's paper, was my great-great-grandfather. German T. Craighead, listed last week, was my own grandfather, as you gave his name in the 1850 census. He was the son of Obadiah Craighead. Please send me two extra copies of last week's paper, for which I am enclosing 30 cents in coin.


†††††††††††††† Sincerely,

††††††††††††††††† Mrs. Gladys Linton.


†† [Editor's comment. We have already forwarded the papers requested. We are glad to have inquiries and will try to furnish the desired information in matter of family history, if we can fine the facts. We thank Mrs. Linton for her kind words.]
