Charlotte and Tina, I have not been able to do any family history research for several years, so was pleased to see how much Ted Pylant has done on his site. I am the only great-granddaughter of Ora Ardena Fisher, Mary Bell Blagg's second-youngest daughter (with Syndey Stanton Baldwin).

I have a photograph that came from a tintype. We have never known if it was of Mary Bell or of Susan Bigby. I'd be happy to scan it and send it along. Could you send any pictures you have, as well? Maybe with comparison, we'd be able to figure it out. Let's correspond further by email.

I've also been trying to resolve the long-standing rumor of some Cherokee or other Indian ancestry in this line--do either of you have any information on that? Susan's name often comes up in that discussion, and the picture I have seems to support that, but I can find no records.

Hoping to hear from you,
Christine Petersen
