Notes:
Mel -

You would be surprised to know how many William Letts there are in the woods
out there. I am William L. Lett, III. My father & grandfather, of course
were Williams also, although they both went by their middle name, Leonard.
I have a son who is also William L. Lett (IV). There is another William
Lett, William Henley Lett, who lives in the local area and we cannot
establish any direct link, although there must be one somewhere back there.
His family is from Tallapoosa, Talladega, and North-east Alabama. I don't
know if he has much interest in geneology. I haven't spent any time with
him although my Uncle, Robert Winston Lett has discussed relationships with
him.
You know of the William Lett in Washington or Oregon (William D.). I have
also run across a couple of Bill Letts in the midwest, Indiana and Illinois.
There is also a Lett clan in Florida and one in Louisiana. My GGF, Robert
Curry Lett, actually died in Louisianna but is buried at Good Hope Church
near Tallassee. His father, Robert Pinkney Lett (Whose wife was Minerva
Ramsey) is buried at Claude. There is not much left at Claude, only a
cemetery plot back in the woods. Must have been a church or something there
at one time.

Well, that's me. I have prodded a couple of relatives, maybe they can come
up with some more info. If I find out anything, I'll let you know.

Regards,

Bill Lett

at the same time,Did you send me a family history?You are in Oregon,right, I
have to get this straight,I will try to find out where William D, is,So
Sorry, William D,Where are you?You are thee one that sent me the deal on
Nance LETT,Right? Now I have to figure out if Wm D, is Bill Lett. My o my !
