My brother recently came across two boxes of family history including numerous photos and letters and things. These boxes were in a home he bought. The home was owned by a Forest and Selma Waddell, thier son was in charge of things and he said he didn't want the stuff. So knowing what a treasure this would be to a family member, I thought I would some messages and see if these names are familiar to anyone, I we would love to see a family member get these wonderful memories and info. The main surname on all of these things is Book, There is an Emmett Book and we beleive that Selma Waddell may have been his sister. Other names mention are Jennie Nelson, Mike and Rae Jones, Thies is also an Edith M. Warren, and a Edith crum, we think this is the same person. Thier is also a note written to Edith and is signed grandma N.W. McCall. Other surnames mentioned are Brown, Osborne, and Odell. Selma and Forest Waddell were living in Mo. that is where these thing are, but a lot of the things in the boxes mentions or is from Iowa, we believe the town is Anton or Anthon. If any of this sounds familiar and you think it might be your family let me know.
