I just recognized the name Jessie Sawyer. She married Thomas Henry Florida. His parents were Tom Florida and Loretta Thomas. Tom is 1/2 brother to my 2 great grandmother, Nancy Truman New. Their mother was Althea Hudson Truman Florida. Althea had 3 Truman kids, then married John Osborne Florida (a widower with 4 kids). They had another 7 kids together. Five of these 14 kids married different members of my family. I have quite a bit more info on the descendants.
I also have a photo of Althea and some of the kids grown-up.
