Page from 1975 Bicentennial Project
Newton County MO
This letter was transcribed by Donna Jane Whitchurch. She borrowed it from her Grandmother over forty years ago to use as a part of a Bicentennial Project for Newton County, Missouri in 1975.
The original letter was destroyed by fire. Upon research by Diana Steele Spencer, a cousin of Donna, it is likely that the signature at the end of the letter was actually Alvin A. Amick who lived in the Rockwall TX area during the time period.
