I received an email message from Sallie Hobbs of Liberty, Missouri:
> "Are you acquainted with any of the descendants of Elvina Brashear? I am > looking for pictures of her. Her third husband was John White Collins, > my gggrandfather.

Do you know of anyone who might > have old family pictures, so that we might compare the unknown person to > pictures of Elvina?"
If one of the many Flandros who've passed through this board have an idea about where to find a photograph of Elvina or could otherwise identify the woman in Sallie's photograph, drop me a line, and I'll send your contact information to Sallie.
