The following is a letter written, in 1952, by my great-grandfather Charles Giddens, son of George Lullen Giddens who was the son of Mitchell Giddens, a shoemaker. Mitchell's parents are said to have been John Giddens and Sarah or Sallie TAYLOR.  His siblings may include Isaac, John, Jacob, and Abraham.  Mitchell was married to Letisha Britt, daughter of William and Patience BRITT of Wayne County, NC.  Letisha is buried in a cemetery in Giddensville, NC.  Lina was Charles Giddens' half-sister from George's second marriage. Lina's daughter, Helen Pemberton of Virginia, owns the original letter.

Dear Lina your letter of 1 / 2 received    Glad to hear from you and to learn where your Fla residence is located.  My son Charles lives at Hollywood Fla which is not far from your place.  We were down to see him and Louise his wife in 1946. That was before we left St. Louis for Tex.  We were in Florida in 1928 and in 1939 and covered both east and west Fla, but in 46 we went by Deland , Sanford, Orlando Kissin then Okeechobie then around the lake.  Then on down to Hollywood.  We had quite a trip.  Geneology or family tree you wrote about I know a little which I learned from Louis Giddens of Goldsboro several years ago I knew nothing until he mentioned it to me that was his hobby.  The first known to come to this country were from Wales and they came over with lord Baltimore and landed in Baltimore, Md.  One of them drifted down to N.C. Wayne County and married a Miss Taylor I think her first name was Mary.  The next I know anything about was our grandfather Mitchell and his brother which was Louis Giddens' father both married sisters whos names was Britts.  Our grandmother was Laticha or something like that.  This is where you branch off and drop all except the Mitchell branch.  I was born Nov 22nd1865 at Giddensville Sampson Co NC You can get sisters history from Hugh and Pearl she was about two years younger than I.  My children are all dead but two Charles and Edith I do not know where Edith is Charles may be able to tell you if you write him his address is Hollywood Box 1042 Fla. Lucy my first wife was borned in Vermont and about three months younger than I, her last name was Glenn.
Our great-grandfather was married when he was quite old and had two sons George Britt one of the boys used to visit us at Giddensville and we went to dances together around the Holliday.  He was about three or four years older than I was , he was a good sport.  Let me hear from you often and come to see us sometime.
                          Love and best wishes
                               Charles and Stella Giddens
