Julie, I received your package.

NY; Frank age 12, b. MI; Delbert age 10, b. MI; Hattie age 8, b. MI; Phebee Frank, age 73, b. NY. (On the same page is Q.(?) Updegraff age 22 born Michigan, living alone).

I'm still working on info about the Lyon family I'm related to in the Flint area, can you email (or post here) a bit about yours. It's hard to tell if we have any common relatives and I don't think our Darlings connect, but I'll keep trying to see if I have something in my files to help.
