Dear Joyce,  I am sending you a picture and the obituary of Walter E. Kinne, my father-in-law, and a longtime resident of Athens.  The obituary failed to mention that he was preceded in death by his wife, the former Ethyle Florence Lenox, who died February 11, 1963.
It is a privilege to participate in the collection of information your Tri-County Site has assembled.  I have spent many pleasant hours--and hours--studying your site for details about my childrens' paternal family background.
                                                                    Sincerely, Alyse C. Kinne
