|E is for ELIZABETH!|
This photo of Bettie, where she appears to be relaxing on the deck of a boat, provides support for the stories of her traveling with Doris Duke.
|This photo shows Bettie (top left) with her mother, Annie (seated left with hat and glasses. I'm not sure enough about the identity of others in the photo to name them.(I believe the younger woman sitting on the curb to probably be Bettie's sister, Jessie.) I would really like to be able to identify the location of this photo. Does anyone recognize that monument?|
Thanks for reading!
|D is for DUNSTON!|

this house is leaning back.
|When I first passed this log, there were about 6 or 7 turtles sunning on it, but when I stopped my car and backed up to take this picture, the smaller ones just into the water.|

|I wondered if this was the original school house. It is on the high school property.|
|It was so nice to meet Lamb Basnight. He is so cool! :)|
|I was honored to meet Dorothy Spruill Redford!|
|This is Otis. His (known) cousin has confirmed our BRYANT connection via DNA.|
Since he lives locally, he came out to hear my talk and to meet me! That's my cousin, ya'll! :)

They went on for at least 7-8 miles. Amazing!
