Letter from Fern Elizabeth Watkins Cameron, wife of Stanley Francis Cameron
to her sister in law Sophie H. Cameron Blake, wife of Ollie Lytton Blake
from Hamilton, Butler Co., OH to Myers Station, Nicholas Co., KY I don't
know who the Smiths are or who Minnie was, I do know that my grandmother
knew a Minnie Briggs but that I think was after they moved to OH in 1920 or
later on. I feel that this Minnie was a KY girl.
Sophie and Standleys mother was Amanda Frances Evans Cameron from Brown Co.,
OH. The Ethel mentioned, I think was Ethel Buchannon that married Samuel J
Eldridge, she was close to this Cameron family.
I left the spelling and the punctuation as is. Jd <><
