New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

MarionCabin_1901_.jpg770 viewsOn the back, in my G-Grandmother Marilla Anderson's hand: [and her spelling]

" The house where my Father was born, June 22, 1822 - Marion, Smythe County, Virginia - His sister Maggie and little girl Daisy standing in yard - Nov. [blur] 6th, 1901"

If "Maggie" is William Reese Anderson's sister Margaret, she would be about 64 years old, in this shot. She looks about right for that age, in that family line. Her brother never did turn gray.
