Hello, Georgia
You probably don't remember me. I graduated in 1967 a few years before you I believe. I didn't know that Paul Truitt was married to Judy Rivers. When did this happen? I talked to Paul about five years ago and he was still single and traveling the Pacific rim for a finger-joining operation. There is a large family of Blacks named Rivers in Morris county. The writer didn't say whether they were Black or White. All the Black Rivers are decended from "General" Rivers, a former slave. I knew him as a boy when he would drive his horse and wagon to our store on Coffee street to trade. He had a large family.
Good to hear from someone I know. By the way, Jim is now County Attorney again as I assume you know.

Randy Reed
