CAMPBELL COUSINS CORRESPONDENCE
211 10th Street N.E.,
May 26, 1923.
Your letter came yesterday to mother and I am going to
acknowledge it for her. We all think that your plan is a fine one
and I am sure that all of the cousins will heartily approve.
Mother was very much delighted and said that she thought her girls
would have to help her out. I know that were father
living he would have been very much interested in such a project.
Some time ago when I was visiting
Laura she expressed a desire to have the "Family Tree"
written up and I told her I would see what I could do about
getting some of the information together for it. She gave me
some dates that she had and I have gotten a little more together
but still lack a good deal to complete it and I am wondering if
in the letters that the Cousins write that information could not
be incorporated. Aunt Laura was not able to go on with the work
as her health is very poor.
I have the dates of birth and
death of great-grandfather
and grandmother Campbell, also
the date of birth and death of the twelve children. I have a great
many of the names and heirs but do not have them all, neither do I
have the dates. What I want is the name of each heir, the date of
birth, date of death, if dead, name of person to whom married and
date, and so on down for all the generations. What do you think of
such a plan? Then with the information that would be received at
various times in the letters, dates of marriages, deaths and
births could be filled in. If you have time, I would like to have
your opinion and if you think that it would be a good one, I will
be willing to do what I can to help out on the work of getting it
With kind regards to your family and hoping that we will see you in Washington before long, I am
