Re: mother of John A. Quitman?
Good to hear from you.I am not a descendant of General
Quitman.I am beginning to think he doesn't have any descendants.My husband's aunt has an item of jewelry and
wants to find a descendant to give it to.I have not been
lucky enough to find anyone for her.Guess it will stay
in our family after all.One of General Quitman's daughters
(we aren't sure which one) gave a locket to a "friend" who
left it in our family.It is a typical mourning locket of the day, made with a lock of the General's hair.
My husband is retired from the USAF.We lived for three
years near Kaiserslautern.We loved it!
