Jennie was the sister who stayed behind in Missouri. In 1940 she apparantly needed proof of her birth and wrote to her family in Washington to send her legal proof of birth. They took the family Bible to George Sellers office (attorney) and got affidavit. When they returned this to Jennie in Missouri Aunt Abbie (wife of Jennie's brother, Dick) wrote the following:

Wenatchee Wash April 8, 1940

Dear Jennie,

I expect you think we are a long time in rending this paper to you but took a while to find the Bible with the family record. It was here with a few things of your mothers she didn't want to take with her to Orondo.

I hope it will prove to be the necessary information and you get your pension.

It surely helps out a lot.

Our weather is nice now, cold nights but everything is growing.

We haven't planted any garden yet and don't think we will plant much. Your mother is at Pearls just now. Was here for one week till yesterday.

My mother is quite sick and I was with her a while so Mother Shepherd helped here a while. She had the flu in the winter but is pretty well again except for a cough she hasn't gotten rid of yet. Orville is about the same as usual and Dick has been having neurites or something like it in his arm till he doesn't feel very well sometimes.

The rest of us are well. Dick is waiting for this to go to town so will close. Hope you folks are well,

simply addressed:
