I have been offline since Dec. of 2001,and am now attempting to regain some ground on my search of our Lively family members. I do need to survey my documents again. Know that eary migration took them through Nova Scotia. My Great,great Maternal Grandfather was a Reuben T. Lively. I had been chatting with a Cynthia Hicks (cousin through Reuben's brother, Albert Tipton Lively) She said another cousin La Nell (?) had sent her a typed copy of a letter from Reuben. I'd be very interested in obtaining a copy of this letter. As well as sharing any info. with this very large family of Livelys. My great Grandmother,Willa (Wille) Mae Lively was one of about 10-12 children. She had twin brothers (don't remember their names right now) who for years owned and operated Lively Furniture in Lufkin,TX. I posses a fairly extensive history of this family and some rare family Lively photos from either late 1800's or early 1900's. Not of all children this family, but probably those with whom my g.grandmother was closest.
