The copy of the letter that I had in hand and referred to in my posting that you responded to was dated Statesville, N.C. Aug 22d, 1928 and was addressed to Mr. G.S. LANNEVER, Box 162, Humboldt, Tenn.Mr. Sharpe mentioned these same facts that I quoted in many of the letters in his collection.He had a heavy correspondence with people all over the country regarding his ancestry and that of various residents of Statesville.The post office and clerks at Statesville even passed queries on to him that they received from all over but his collection appears to pertain to his family of Sharpe and McKee and their spouse surnames.
My relationship is thru the McKee family.What is yours?Linda
