Your wife's Mom was Patty Davis? Wow...Kitty was trying to explain to me who Patty was the other day when she showed me this great picture, (I love the bare feet) but I just couldn't remember. Marc: Could you leave a comment telling where Patty used to live in Lindley so I can get a handle on who she was? I'm thinking she had a sister "Donna"... Did your wife "print out" a copy for herself, and if she did, was the photo clear enough to see their faces. I'd print it out, but I'm out of ink!

Marc and family: You wrote that "four are gone." Which four? After you explained where they lived and put the names together, I remembered them right away. I used to sit with the girls on the bus. I remember Diane being more outgoing than Donna. I can't say that I remember Ralph all that well. Was he older or younger than the girls? And what is your wife's name. Was she the youngest?

Sallyann, Patty was the oldest of the kids, then Donna, Ralph and Diane was the youngest. I think Ralph did not live in Lindley, I think he grew up on Meads Creek with his father. Pat,Donna, Ralph and Diane have all passed away as have their parents. My wife is Teresa, was Patty Davis and Dean Tillotson's middle daughter. She can remember hearing stories about the farm on River Road, Donna riding horses and other funnier things. We couldn't get the picture to print out but she has emailed it to her sister and maybe she can get it to print.

Now I get it. I do remember Donna riding horses. I'm so sad they are all gone. When I get ink for my printer, I'll print you out a copy of the photo. Won't take long at all. Teresa should have a copy.

Hi Marc and Teresa - If you send your e-mail address to me at, I will try to send you a copy of the photo. It is like the one that I sent to Sally-jpg. format. You should be able to print that in black and white.
