From an estate sale in Milledgeville Georgia, I have some old photos, letters from John Hawthorne Graham Jr. that was in the Navy in the early 1950's. I was instructed by the seller to destroy what I have but I cannot do it without trying to find some family member that would like to have it.
This is some info from an obit that was in the Greenville News: James Hoyt Sentell who died in 1958, he married Ethel Ellington, his parents were Roal Sentell and Sarah Patterson, these were his children, Sara Anne Sentell who married John Hawthorne Graham Jr., James H. Sentell Jr., and Richard Dean Sentell.
James H. Sentell had 6 sister and one brother:
Mrs. Max Henrioud
Mrs. Ethel Stepp
Mrs. C.V. Golightly
Mrs. J.H. Hunt
Mrs. Grady Coleman
Mrs. Mabel Leary
and brother Julian J. Sentell.
These letters are from John H. Graham Jr. when he was in the Navy from 1952 till 1955, names mentioned in letters are:
Gut his brother
Jerry Michael "Tick" Brissey
Bill Collier
Mark his brother
Robert his brother
Ray Vehorn
Sidney Carroll.
Some of the pictures have 1927 on them, I cannot see throwing this away if I can find a family who would like them, they are a treasure.
