Dearest Roby Revealed

I've a new account on and upon digging through, found a picture of my great great grandmother, none other than Roby Jane Pierce Woodcock who this entire blog is devoted to!  What a find!  I was tickled to see my grandmother's handwriting on the bottom of it also...she was the true historian in the family.  I'm thankful to her for keeping all of these letters and pictures through the years...

  2. Isn't it?! I see my Grandma Abercrombie in that face. I'll keep digging for pictures and will continue to post letters. The book is long in the works...
