Good to hear from you. I am not a descendant of General
Quitman. I am beginning to think he doesn't have any descendants. My husband's aunt has an item of jewelry and
wants to find a descendant to give it to. I have not been
lucky enough to find anyone for her. Guess it will stay
in our family after all. One of General Quitman's daughters
(we aren't sure which one) gave a locket to a "friend" who
left it in our family. It is a typical mourning locket of the day, made with a lock of the General's hair.

My husband is retired from the USAF. We lived for three
years near Kaiserslautern. We loved it!

Guten Abend!
