Thanks for the fast reply. The fellow I know is Royal Gaddy, presently living in South Haven. He and his wife will be dinner guests at our home tonight. He's posted some of his ancestry on the internet, and I would not be surprised if he was the one who bought the material, or may know who has it.
In case he does not, do you remember anything about where the person who purchased it lived... and was he a Gaddy surname?
