[Dear Editor,]
Seeking info on parents of Mary J. Suddarth, born circa 1840 in Albemarle County, Virginia; married Ananias N. Casto in 1855 in Upshur County, Virginia; died 1912.

Her father's name was William Suddarth. Have no name for her mother. She had three brothers: James, Frank and Joseph. Her brother Joseph moved to Oklahoma and died in the National Military Home Hospital in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1925. Mary J. (Suddarth) Casto and Ananias N. Casto are my great-grandparents.

Thank you,

[Dear Editor,]
I was given your name by the Patrick County Historical Society. They said you have a family history section in your newspaper. If so I would like to have this put in. I am looking for information on Joseph M. Dillon, son of James and Lucy Bramer Dillon, married 1900 to Jennie Ann Ollie O'Bryan who was the daughter of Alfred O'Brian and Viola Ann (Hall). Alfred was the son of William Harrison O'Bryan and Ann (Washington). Viola was the daughter of David Hall and Virginia Jane (Rakes).

Thank you,
