Dear Mrs. Peggy Truesdell,
I am in possession of several letters and keepsakes of a person that may be related to you. I found these items among my father’s possessions after he passed away in 2007. The items belong to Earl D. Truesdell, Jr., and the dates of the letters are the war years of 1942-1945.Included are some personal items such as military patches, various I.D. cards, a letter from his mother, letters to Alice Truesdell and other items that may be of interest to the Truesdell family. I’m not sure, of course, if this Earl D. Truesdell is related to you.If not, please give me a call or an email and I will continue my search to find the family of Mr. Truesdell so I may pass on these family heirlooms. I ask for no compensation for my efforts, I just want to find the Truesdell family so the letters find a home.
