Below is a petition for guardianship that I copied.(the few words I couldn't make out I replaced with question marks)
C. L. Montgomery states that he is an uncle of Hattie A Thomas. Her mother was a Josephine Baily married to a Thomas. Most likely C. L. Montgomery is married to a Thomas or Baily. If anyone knows anything about any of these people, please let me know. I have been trying to find Thomas family.
Thanks- Sandi-
