A Fly On The Wall

I have said many times that doing family research is like looking at person information, skeletons in closets, reading private mail - really invading some people's privacy, of course many years after their death.

Here is another person letter checking on her brother and his family.  No cell phones back then:

Letter from Nancy Moody Fowler to her brother William Moody:
