    Notes 
    • BIO
      Letter from Thomas A. Sargent, 2207 West Wiltshire Road, Muncie, Indiana 47304, 1 November 1999.

      I sent a letter on 21 October 1999 to:
      Thomas A. Sargent
      2207 West Wiltshire Road
      Muncie, Indiana 47304.

      The information I sent was copies of the Secrest Family Records and a few other things pertaining to the part of the family Tom was familiar with.

      I received a letter on 2 November 1999.

      The information received was:
      Dear Shirley:

      Many thanks for sending me the material on the Richison Family, which we discussed at the Academy for Community Leadership session October 19.

      I was so pleased to see information regarding grandmother's family and to read again the names of persons I'd either met (such as Aunt Alice Beard and Uncle Charles Richison) or only heard about from grandmother. I remember that even during World War II granddad and grandmother and I would drive up to Pennville for the day to see Aunt Alice and Uncle Will, or visit the farm outside town.

      It's true, of course, that grandmother was my "step" grandmother, my "blood" grandmother having died in 1918. But she was the only grandmother I ever knew, and she was a very loving and wonderful woman in every way. She even gave me my first car!

      Do you appear on this record? If so, I had trouble finding your name.

      Again, thank you for taking the trouble to send the material to me. I am grateful for this reminder of some happy times.

      It was good to meet you last month. Best regards,

      Sincerely,

      Tom [while the letter is typed, it was signed by Tom]
