I forgot to add this to my email on the Newspaper posting info. I saw someone once quote a
Speed book. Can anyone tell me more about it so I can get a copy? I'm still trying to
prove on paper (besides our family letter) that Newman Dortch and Sally Speed were the
parents of William Archer Dortch who married Sarah G. Poythress.
In Munsey Adams cemetery book Vol. I there's a listing I recognized.
