David White and Martha McCollum

David Wesley White (1853 - 1947), and Martha McCollum (1855 - 1911)
David White was a brother to Sarah White and a son of William White and Rachel Brackett.

Georgia Hughes

David writes: "My mother's grandfather, John Drury Logan, was born in 1859 in Union County and moved away after his marriage to Evelyn Martin in 1879. Evelyn was a daughter of Ervin Martin and Elizabeth Penland Martin, all of Union Co. John Drury was a son of William R. Logan (see Narrative of his life) and Mary Reid Logan. Mary's parents wereas John Reid and Nancy Logan Reid, of Union Co. I have lots of unknown photos of this family, but most of them were probably made in Bradley County, TN. The picture post card that I have attached says "from Georgia Hughes; to cusen (sic) Evie". So the card was sent (I would guess about 1920) to Evelyn Martin Logan. The children could be cousins through her husband's family. I am not aware of any Hughes' in the family except for John Drury Logan's step mother, who was nee Hughes. The card probably could be of children living in Union Co, but possibly from Fannin Co or another nearby county. Some of these people could still be living."
Do you know who these people might be?
