In Reply to: J GARDINER LETT, - Yuma -1900's by PaulWalthers of 39


I have been conducting genealogical research on my family LETT for many years. My husband and I have visited with some of the Lett family in Wexford, Ireland. Have visited some of the old family estates and walked the cemeteries and visited the churches. At the moment I am looking for a book written by Joynt Gardiner Lett about his life and times in Yuma. The libraries in Yuma don't hold copies. A contact in England is also looking for this book and hopes I will be able to locate it and read it. We hope to glean some much needed information. Have you see it? Do you know where it may be held? If so can I get a copy of it or a photocopy? Please give me some information on your family and I will try to help you. You probably know that the first ancestor to go to Ireland from England was Captain Thomas Lett. He was a Captain in Cromwell's army. At the end of the war he took land instead of money and settled in Wexford. All the Lett's descend from his three sons of which a great deal of work has been done re their history. My ancestor, Thomas Lett, his wife Elizabeth Martin and their children came to Canada in 1849 from Enniscorthy, Ireland. Actually we have pinpointed the area to Tomgarrow for Thomas and Tomsallagh for Elizabeth. Anyway please reply and we will go from there. All the best,

Barbara Owens
