Dear Steve, I'm sorry it has taken me to long to get back to you. Lots of company these past couple of weeks. I will mail you the copies of the letters this next week. Perhaps you have found the name, William Tell Kerby, during your search. I am trying to find his father and mother. He was born in 1814, according to my records, in North Carolina, probably, Cherokee County or close to it. If you should happen to come across any info about him, please let me know.
