Complied the genealogical work on the family of Robert Thomas Wishard. I found an inquiry from Laura to my mother-in-law when I was cleaning out my in-laws home after they had both died. It contained some of Laura's genealogy work and a request for additional information on the descendants of Audrey White, daughter of Etta Wishard White. I wrote the address on the twenty-year-old brown envelope and received a phone call from Laura's son James. She was at that time in a nursing home. He had told her of my letter and she had asked him to photocopy her manuscript and mail it along to me. She died only a few months later.

Laura graduated from Ladonia High School, Class of 1826; May 30, 1947 Ladonia News.
