                                 EDITOR'S NOTES
                                   Mike Terry 
               It has been a very busy year for me. We moved to 
          Sapulpa, Oklahoma in January, 1987 and I have been trying to 
          adjust to a new job which requires a lot of extra work at 
          home [genealogy is a part-time interest]. I work with 
          developmentally disabled children and we are presently 
          engaged in a law-suit which requires court reports and hours 
          beyond 40 per week. It has become ALMOST impossible to meet 
          my publishing deadlines due to my schedule. -- Please accept 
          my apologies. 
               You will also notice there are some new types of notes 
          and short articles in the TFH. These are messages received 
          from a group of computer bulletin board systems [BBS] which 
          carry queries and other messages related to genealogy. While 
          they are not all dealing with TERRY family research the 
          information should be useful to members. The exciting thing 
          is you can get answers within days and sometimes hours 
          concerning research that others have done across the nation.
               Financing the TFH is a continual problem. Genealogists 
          seem to dig in and work in the Fall and Winter and this is 
          the time most money for funding is received. The TFH is a 
          BREAK EVEN SOMETIME endeavor. It requires a lot of man-hours 
          on my part. I usually am unable to pay publishing costs and 
          have to rely on the faith and good will of the publisher to 
          carry me through until the Fall when renewals are received. 
          [The computer and printer was purchased with personal 

               There has been a dramatic increase in publishing costs 
          paralleled by a more than usual decrease in paid membership 
          which does not allow me to take advantage of reduced bulk 
          mailing costs.-- You have to have 200 pieces to get a lesser 
               To reduce costs you will note the fewer number of pages 
          which are about 30. This is in line with most other family 
          publications I have seen. I will publish a full 50 pages if 
          membership increases or additional funds are received from 
          members. If present trends continue we will continue through 
          to December 1988. At the present time we have about 100 paid 
               It is very important that we continue to recruit new 
          members and that you continue to submit new information 
          concerning Terry family research. Your financial 
          contributions are very important and my sincere thanks to 
          the members for their loyalty over the years. The TFH is a 
          worthwhile effort and I certainly wish continue.

                            MY MOST MEMORABLE SUMMER
                                   Mike Terry
               Myself, Debra and Emma made a quick trip to Disney 
          World this summer which probably is what will forever be on 
          the mind of my youngest, Emma. The electric light parade was 
          something, but my greatest thrill, personally, was to stop 
          by Lawrence County, Alabama and to visit the grounds of the 
          United Terry Club near Courtland. Unfortunately, we were 
          just a weekend away from Labor Day when all the hullabaloo 
          surrounds this community.
               I pulled into a little cafe and upon entering found a 
          number of farmers gathered around a table. The conversation 
          went something like this: 
               "I'm Mike Terry and I am editor of the Terry Family 
          Historian, could you help me find the 'Terry Club'?"
               A man smiled wryly and replied, "Usually there is one 
          of them Terry's in here!" 
               "Drive down to the first stop light and turn and drive 
          a few miles until you see a mail box. It will probably be a 
          Terry and ask for directions."
               Sure enough, the first mailbox I came to was that of a 

          Frank Terry. Mr. Terry and his wife were getting into a 
          pickup truck and I got out and asked for directions to the 
          United Terry Club. He indicated I should drive back up the 
          road and take the first left. 
               He stated, "The folks at one end of the United Terry 
          Club are Terrys and would not mind me looking around. Frank 
          Terry indicated he was a descendant of one of "seven early 
          Terry brothers" who came to Courtland, Alabama. 
               When I arrived I stopped at the first house and a lady 
          came to the door where I asked, "If it would be okay to look 
          around?" She replied, it was all right to look around and by 
          the way "she was not a Terry but had married one [Gilbert 
          Terry?]." She indicated the folks "at the top of the hill 
          were also Terrys and I could speak with them."
               I proudly posed in front of the building which stated:
                             United Terry Club, Inc. 
                                August 31, 1960 
               I drove back to Courtland and stopped at a local drug 
          store, and I asked the lady behind the counter what 
          newspaper most people read in Courtland and she indicated 
          the Moulton Advertiser. When I introduced myself, she noted 
          "she was also married to a Terry." "Most people around here 
          are Terrys or married one of them!" 
               I picked up a The Moulton Advertiser "Alabama's Oldest 
          Weekly Newspaper" and you guessed it -- it reads somewhat 
          like the Terry Family Historian. 
               Some headings included: 
               Under Announcements -- "Porch sale on Gordon Terry      
               "Terrys host dinner for sisters' reunion" 
               Marriage -- "Rhonda Faye Hill, Gregory Lee Terry" 
               Birthday calendar -- August 22 Lynn Terry 
               Marriage licenses -- "Mitchell Glen Jones, 20, 
               Hillsboro and Leeshane Terry, 21, Moulton, August 13" 
               "Terry taking her leaps in gymnastics" -- an article      
               about Abby Terry a 12 year old gymnast at East Lawrence      
               High School.


               Yes, it is true what they said, "Terry's Thicker than 
          cotton in Lawrence County"? I guess it could all be summed 
          up by saying, it really felt good to be one of "them Terry's 
          in Lawrence County".

               Page 86 -- James Allen b. 1775 - according to Todd 
          County, Kentucky census -- m. about 1800 Molly Hagood, 
          daughter of Buckner and Rosanna (Archer) Hagood. Mollie died 
          between 1840 - 1850. James made his will October 10, 1855 
          and died by December of that year. He left his estate to his 
          grandson, William, and his three daughters. 

               The couple had nine, perhaps ten children: a daughter, 
          Nancy, b. 1807 in South Carolina never married but lived 
          with her parents until their deaths; a son under ten in 1810 
          and born in Chester County may have died young or may be 
          William H., whose will was recorded Sept. 22, 1835 in Todd 
          County. He had moved to Nashville, Tennessee, married, and 
          had a son by the same name; two daughters and a son born 
          between 1810 and 1820 were not listed in the home in 1830 
          census; Elisha, born 1810-1820, married Caty Ann Faulks, 
          December 10, 1827 and may have also married Jane Whitson 
          October 18, 1847; James Kennedy Allen, born 1814, was 
          probably a namesake of his father's maternal uncle. He 
          married on July 2, 1837 Sally M. Terry, daughter of William 
          Morris (Maurice) and Elizabeth Terry. Elizabeth b. 1812, 
          married the first time _____ Allen, and then Isom Malone of 
          Elkton, Todd Co. They had two sons, Bishop and Jim, latter a 
          school teacher. 
               James Kennedy Allen was a farmer in Todd County until 
          1854 when he, his wife and three children migrated with 
          Kentucky-Tennessee wagon train to Tarrant Co., Texas. Texas 
          was being advertised in glowing terms not only by 
          "developers" but also by friends who had migrated earlier. 
          Alfred Johnson had left neighboring Tennessee in 1853 and 
          settled in Tarrant County. He was largely responsible for 
          the Allens migrating in November 1854. The trip took a 
          month. J. K. Allen bought farms in the western part of the 
          county. He was a charter member of the First Christian 
          Church of Ft. Worth, Texas. He held elected and appointed 
          public offices at the county and state level. When the Civil 
          War started, he returned on horseback to join his Todd 
          County  neighbors to fight for the Confederacy. Though he 
          received a gun-shot wound in the leg, he survived. Three 
          children had been born in Todd County; William Terry born 
          December 12, 1842 , married Sarah Frances Grant and upon her 
          death, her sister Theodocia; Mary Ann born May 17, 1844, 
          married Richard King who had come in the wagon train; James 
          Kennedy Allen, II, born November 4, 1848, married Elizabeth 
          Jane Prewitt; Sarah Katherine Allen born Tarrant County  
          married Gabrias Terry. The writer is a grand daughter of 
          James Kennedy Allen II. sg. Frances Marion Allen.

          original land grants. The earliest patent date was 1753. the 
          total number of acres granted to John Sealy was about 1,200. 
          These grants were on Sealy's Creek branch of the Sandy River

               It is always good to find the last American link in a 
          line. It appears, from the following bits and pieces, 
          Phillip Terry of Beaufort, South Carolina was a descendant 
          of early German families. The other guess might be he came 
          with a number of German families to the colonies.

                             PRESERVING NEWSPAPERS
                                 Dennis Korinek 
               Old newspaper clippings and articles have a tendency to 
          fade, yellow, and sometimes fall apart in your hands. Here 
          is how you can preserve them. Dissolve a milk of magnesia 
          tablet in a quart of club soda overnight. Pour into a pan 
          large enough to accommodate a flattened newspaper. Soak the 
          newspaper one hour, remove and pat dry. Estimated life; 200 
          years. Chemically, the magnesium oxide combines with the 
          carbon dioxide in the soda to form magnesium carbonate which 
          neutralizes acids in the paper that cause deterioration.

                                  Larry McGee
                    3406 Silverside Rd. Wilmington DE 19810.
               My Great Grandfather McGee settled in Oklahoma. They 
          moved away to Arizona in 1898. My Grandfather McGee married 
          the Granddaughter of Marilla Terry in Southern Utah. I think 
          the family first went to Oklahoma before it was opened to 
          regular settlement. Did they call that the Oklahoma Land 
          rush? Anyway most of the records say place of birth 'Indian 
          Territory'. At that point James Robinson McGee (my Great 
          Grandfather) and his family entertained the Mormon 
          Missionaries as they traveled by foot through Oklahoma. They 
          joined in about 1897 and then moved west the next year by 
          wagon. Don't know much about side branches of theirs but I 
          guess McGee was a big name in Oklahoma for awhile. (Kerr-
               I am a research CHEMIST at the DuPont Experimental  
          Station in Wilmington Delaware. We have lived in Delaware 
          since 1981. I received my PhD degree in Synthetic Organic 
          Chemistry from CALTECH working with Professor Dave Evans. I 
          received my undergraduate degree from the University of Utah 
          working with Dr. W. W. Epstein. From 1972 to 1974 I 
          interrupted my college education to serve a mission for the 
          Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormon) in 
          Hamburg and Berlin Germany. At that time I became fluent in 
          German. One attempt to retain this language ability is the 
          DEUTSCH Echomail conference. 
               With my wife Paula, we have three kids, born in 1978, 
          1980 and 1987. In my spare time between working and 
          sysoping, I am a Webelos Scout leader. 
               Thanks for your interest in our system. I'll be glad to 
          answer any questions that I can or refer you to a better 
          source if I can't. I look forward to hearing from you.

               Mike, I found a Talitha Terry who married William 
          Kimzey Hightower in Greenville Co, SC. Do you have this 
          info?  Did you get my message about probate of Lucy Terry 
          Hightower's estate?  I found a will at Hendersonville, NC 
          for her husband Epaproditus Hightower. I didn't find 
          anything on her. The J. J. G. Hightower mentioned in the 
          estate papers was their son. His name is John Joseph Gregory

               Here's a suggestion for taking a good picture of a 
          tombstone without harming the marker or the environment. 
               Buy a bundle of charcoal sticks and a box of ordinary 
          chalk; the kind used to write on a blackboard. Neither cost 
          much. Charcoal sticks can be bought at an art store, chalk 
          at a dime store. 
               Use an old tea strainer with a plastic bag taped to it 
          and grate the chalk through the strainer, into the bag, 
          without any mess; or simply mash the chalk into powder form. 
               Trace the printer on the tombstone with the charcoal 
          stick. Pat powdered chalk onto the tombstone and then start 
          tracing lightly over the printing again with the charcoal 
          stick. You are now ready to take your picture. 
               It is not necessary to remove the charcoal or the 
          chalk; the next rain will wash it away with no harm to the 
          stone or the environment.

                                FAMILY REUNIONS
               I am planning a family reunion for descendants of Mary 
          Lattha Terry born 1852, New Haven, Connecticut died 1886, 
          Wayne Co. IA. She was descended from Samuel Terry "the 
          Immigrant" (b. 1632) from Barnet, London, England. I would 
          like to extend the invitation to any descendant of his that 
          wants to make the journey to Thousand Springs, Idaho during 
          the week of August 6-14, 1988. 
               Interested persons should write to me or call for more 
          details and to get on my mailing list. Thousand Springs is 
          in a valley along the Snake river that was a stoping place 
          on the Oregon Trail. There are several campgrounds with full 
          hook-ups at hot springs and spas. Some of the other 
          activities planned are: the best trout fishing in the world, 
          a one day float trip down the Salmon River and many picnics. 

               We already expect persons from Oregon, Washington, 
          California, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Tennessee, 
          Minnesota, Colorado and Iowa. I am hoping to add many more 
          to the list, the more the merrier. Bob Cox, 1071 S.E.

               Since the last report appeared in the September 1986 
          TFH, additional information has been turned up. While none 
          of it reveals our subject's antecedents, it does correct 
          some erroneous data, resolves a few speculations, and gives 
          us more information regarding some descendants. 
               Hannah Price MCNAIR, Jessee's wife, was a descendant of 
          David MCNAIR II, who settled in Augusta County, Virginia 
          (near Staunton) about 1738. [1]  David and an unnamed wife 
          had one recorded son, Daniel, who married Hannah -- in 1741 
          and died in 1791 in Augusta County, Virginia. 
               Daniel and Hannah MCNAIR had four recorded children, 
          the youngest of whom, David, married Elizabeth ALLEN on 8 
          November 1786. [2]  More particular to our search is son 
          James, who was baptized 29 April 1749 [3]  and married 
          Martha Price as mentioned in the previous report. 
               James and friends Gilbert Christian and John Anderson 
          explored into what became Hawkins County, Tennessee in 1769. 
          James lived near these friends in Sullivan County, Tennessee 
          before 1794. His service during the Revolution in the North 
          Carolina militia has been documented. [4]  Investigation 
          into the Price connection is continuing.
               The previous report mentioned that Jessee TERRY does 
          not appear in the 1802, 1805, nor 1808 Roane County, 
          Tennessee tax lists. Likewise, search of the 1807 Knox 
          County, Tennessee tax list fails to reveal his name, 
          although Micagh TERRY with 460 acres in Capt. Childs' 
          company and John TERRY with 130 acres in Capt. Scott's 
          company are founded [5]  Similarly, he is not found in the 
          1812 Knox County tax list, although his father-in-law, James 
          MCNAIR, appears in Capt. Jackson's company with 500 acres. 
               Jessee and Hannah MCNAIR TERRY's eldest daughter, 
          Martha, married Hezikiah LOVE Jr. as previously reported. 
          Hezikiah Jr. was born 15 April 1796 in Roane County. 
          Hezikiah Sr. was born 10 October 1751/52, Chester County, 
          South Carolina and died 11 July 1833 in Roane County. [7]  
          Hezikiah Sr. married firstly Elizabeth Cato / Cartamount / 
          Cartmount in 1783 and secondly Nancy Duren in 1789 (born 
          about 1768 South Carolina; died 1841-50, Benton County, 
          Alabama). No children by Elizabeth are known. The children 

          previously reported were all by Nancy.

                    Elizabeth LOVE) born 29 March 1822, Roan County,

                    business in Kingston with sister Mary.

                    married 1878 Sarah Webster.
               Gilbert Christian, Jessee's son-in-law and Mary TERRY's 
          husband, may have been the son of Robert Christian, the 
          militia captain from Sullivan County. 
               His mother is presently thought to be Mary Adair, 
          daughter of John Adair, first commissioner of Knoxville [8], 
          although additional work is required to firmly establish 
          this relationship. John Adair was born 1732 in County 
          Antrim, Ireland. With his wife, Ellen Crawford Adair, and 
          children, he came to America about 1771, settling in 
          Baltimore. In 1772 they removed to Pennsylvania and in 1773 
          to what became Sullivan County, Tennessee. In 1779, North 
          Carolina Governor Caswell appointed Adair entry-taker of 
          Sullivan County, to collect fees from the settlers for the 
          lands granted. Participation of the over-mountain men in the 
          battle of Kings Mountain in 1780 was made financially 
          possible when Adair turned over about $13,000 in public 
          funds to John Sevier to purchase military equipment. North 
          Carolina granted Adair 400 acres in recognition of his 
          services [9]. on 16 June 1792. Governor Blount of the 
          Southwest Territory appointed Adair a justice of the peace 
          for Knox County. He became a member of the first board of 
          trustees of Blount College (later the University of 
          Tennessee) in 1794 and a member of the Tennessee 
          constitutional convention in 1796. Adair became an elder of 
          the First Presbyterian Church upon its organization. He died 
          24 February 1827 in Knox County and is buried with his wife 
          on a knoll on their old homestead, now part of Lynnhurst 
               Robert Christian was born about 1765 and died 1840-1850 

          in Roane County. He was the son of Gilbert and Margaret 
          Anderson Christian. Gilbert (born about 1735 Augusta County, 
          Virginia) moved from the Staunton, Virginia area to settle 
          near Ingle's Ferry on the New River, at a place called 
          Dunkard's bottom about 1774. [10]. Gilbert was granted 250 
          acres in Sullivan County on 23 October 1782.  [11]  A well-
          known Indian fighter and active in governmental affairs, 
          Gilbert died of fever in Knoxville in November 1793 while 
          returning from Hightower's campaign against the Indians. 
               Gilbert was the son of Robert (died 1794, Augusta 
          County, Virginia) and Isabella Tiffin Christian. Robert 
          served as a militia recruiting officer in 1732. [13]
               The progenitor of this line was Gilbert Christian (born 
          about 1678, British Isles: died after 1756, Augusta County, 
          Virginia). Chalkey indicates that he married Elizabeth (or 
          Margaret?) Richardson about 1702/03 in Ireland. [14]  He 
          settled on Christian's Creek, near Staunton, in 1732. [15]
               Earnest TERRY provided some information and thoughts on 
          the previous progress report that are much appreciated. 
          Jessee TERRY's on, William Price TERRY, was born in 1816, 
          not 1809. His first and only wife, Elizabeth Gilbert, was 
          born in 1821 and they were married 26 November 1840. William 
          died about 1865, not 1899. The 1850 and 1860 censuses 
          provide the birth years. The 1870 Knox County, Tennessee 
          census lists Elizabeth and children. The last and youngest 
          child Lucy, was born in 1863. 
               Earnest points out that the Winston Garth TERRY (WGT) 
          bible record is seriously flawed and cannot, apparently, be 
          trusted in all respects. The William Price TERRY referred to 
          lived 1790 - 1860 in Morgan County, Alabama, married Mary 
          Louise Turner; he had a brother Wyley (died 1850, Morgan 
          County) who married Malinda T. Bush on 1 November 1838. This 
          Wyley had two sons William and Wyley. Earnest gives the 
          birthplace of William Price (1790) and his brother as 
          Virginia. While in Morgan County, they lived close to Henry 
          TERRY; Earnest believes they were Henry's sons. Henry 
          appears as a branch of one of Earnest's lines of research. 
               Winston Garth TERRY and his brother Henry Bynum TERRY 
          were sons of William Price TERRY (1790). 
               Earnest hypothesized that Josiah TERRY, husband of 
          Sarah F. Austin, is another son of Jessee TERRY. Josiah was 
          born about 1800, lived in Talladega County, Alabama in 1827, 
          and would have been of age to sign his sister Mary's 


          marriage bond. He posits the following children for Jessee 
          and dates: 
               Josiah         born 1800
               Martha         born 1801
               Mary           born 1805
               John C.        born 1808
               William Price  born 1816
               Sarah          born 1817
               Myra           born 1820
               Jesse          born 1822
               Louisa         born 1829
               James          born ????
               Note the gaps in dates and the fact that Louisa was 
          born when her mother was about 48 years old -- not 
          impossible, but unusual. The previous report omitted the 
          children of John and Louisa TERRY Ferguson as given in the 
          1860 Blount County Census: twin sons Josiah and Wiley, born 
               The journal of Richard Green Waterhouse provides [15a]  
          details of a journey in December 1808. On Tuesday, 13 
          December, amidst snow, Waterhouse mentions passing the 
          Standing Stone and "thence to Jesse TERRY's." A map held in 
          the Library of Congress (F 16474) titled "Central Upper 
          Cumberland Section of Tennessee in Pioneer Times 1783-1830" 
          drawn by Alvin B. Wirt and accessioned on 25 March 1954, 
          shows the Standing Stone on the Cumberland Pike about 12 
          miles northwest of Flat Rock in Roane County. This Jessee 
          TERRY would have been located about 3-5 miles west of 
          Standing Stone in the next county. This may provide a clue 
          as to where Jessee TERRY was located prior to his first 
          appearance eon the Roane County tax list of 1814. 
               Jessee, Jessee's son, acquired the 325 acre homestead 
          probably by inheritance. Jesse`s death date of 1893, given 
          by his son William Isaac TERRY, is apparently in error as 
          shown by the 1887 Roane County tax list. In the 1888 list, 
          the property is listed under "Jessee TERRY heirs." Since the 
          list was compiled in June, this homes in somewhat on a date. 
          Jesse's burial site remains undiscovered. The property was 
          sold for taxes in 1901 with a Josiah TERRY acting for the 
          family. [16]   More data has been assembled regarding 
          Jesse's children. 
               8B.  TERRY, William Isaac born 28 January 1874 near 
          Kingston, Roane County, Tennessee. He moved to Knoxville 
          where he married Minnie Anne Courtney on 23 December 1896, 
          Isaac Miller, M.G. [17]. He, his mother and sisters, and his 
          wife joined the Greystone Presbyterian Church 28 August 
          1898; later, on 6 March 1910, William, Minnie, and Ellen 
          Fritts TERRY joined the Ft. Sanders Presbyterian Church. 
          [18]  William married a second time but without children 

          after Minnie's death on 2 December 1939. He died 11 February 
          1949; both he and Minnie are buried at New Gray Cemetery, 
          Knoxville, Tennessee. 
               8C.  TERRY, Rosa Ellen married Leonidas ("Lee") Clark 
          at Greystone Presbyterian Church 26 October 1899 (new date).  
               8D.  TERRY, Albert J. has two birth dates given: 18 
          November 1878 [20]  or 20 December 1879 [21]. Interestingly, 
          the source for both was his wife. He joined the US War 
          Department as a laborer on 18 April 1900 at Chattanooga, 
          Tennessee, advancing to steam engineer on 14 December 1911. 
          On 20 February 1920, he became a hydraulic foreman at the 
          War Department's Wilson Dam, Florence, Alabama where he 
          remained until November 1929. [22]. He married Ellen O. 
          "Birdie" Young in 1903, who was born in 1882, Alabama, and 
          died in 1915. [23]  In the 1910 census, he was living at 421 
          Cherry Street, Florence. [24]  Apparently Albert was 
          assigned to the Muscle Shoals Works, for his children's 
          birthplaces are given as Alabama. At some point between 1915 
          and 1920, Albert married Jessie Pearl, who was born about 
          1890. At the time of his death on 19 February 1930, the 
          family lived at 437 N. Cherry Street. Albert J. TERRY is 
          buried at Florence Cemetery. 
               The search for Jessee TERRY, his antecedents, and 
          descendants has been wide ranging with a number of 
          interesting byways. While we have not accomplished the 
          objective yet, we have shed some light on collateral lines 
          that will be of value to other TERRY searchers. Another 
          progress report is promised and information would be 
          appreciated from any source.

               A hearing was held June 24 in Washington, D.C., 
          relative to a complaint filed by the U.S. Postal Service 
          against American Genealogies, Inc. (and a number of 
          associated companies and individuals), a company that has 
          used the signature of "Elizabeth Ross" on materials 
          soliciting orders for its family research-oriented books.
               Three witnesses appeared at the hearing, each of whom 
          had purchased a book from "Elizabeth Ross" in the 
          expectation that the book would provide information about 
          his personal family history.
               In a separate but related action, the Chief Judge of 
          the U.S. District Court for the middle District of 
          Pennsylvania issued a preliminary injunction directing the 
          Postal Service to hold all mail addressed to P.O. Box 5300, 
          Scranton PA 18505, which contains orders for books, during 
          the pendency of the administrative proceeding. The 
          preliminary injunction requires the company to accept all 
          books returned by customers for refund.
               The proceedings confirmed that "Elizabeth Ross" is a 
          fictitious person and that some of the people involved in 
          American Genealogies, Inc. were previously associated with 
          Beatrice Bayley, Inc. a company found to be in violation of 
          the same postal law in September 1986. 

               Anyone having complaints relating to dealings with 
          American Genealogies, Inc. should contact Postal Inspector 
          Gary Claytor, c/o Regional Chief Postal Inspector, P.O. Box 
          3000, Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004-3609.
               The National Genealogical Society has been closely 
          involved in the the complaint process and made this report 
          in the July-August NGS Newsletter.
               Despite the hearing and the preliminary injunction, 
          readers of "Genealogy Week" have written and enclosed cards 
          for almost identical offers dated as recently as August 12; 
          but signed by "Mary Whitney" and sent from (a surname) 
          Across America Coordinator, 306 Easton Road, Ottsville, PA. 
          18942, the postal permit paid at Ottsville. Earlier, "Mary 
          Whitney" offers came from "Genealogy Room" at the same 
          address, and were mailed on a Presort First Class U.S. 
          Postage Paid Permit from Scranton, PA.
               We have written to the Postal Inspector named above to 
          advise him of this latest offer. -- Editor.
