Family Notes

Bill - I was just reading through the Shamrock site...  Along with Ethel Lail
Armstrong and Ruth Lavendar Hale, the Covington girls were comtemporaries of
theirs.  They were the daughters of James and Lucy Lail Covington.  They had
6 daughters and 1 son and they owned a great deal of the land around the area.
I have a picture of the 6 of them and it is a great picture - along with their
mother.  They were:
                     l.  Linnie Covington Noelle (sp?)
                     2.  Leta Covington Bishop - Lon Bishop
                     3.  Luna Covington Hale - Walter Hale
                     4.  Lutie Covington MacMurtry
                     5.  Ruth Covington Peery - Lester Peery
                     6.  Mary Covington Yaeger
                     7.  Forrest Covington
Lutie MacMurtry's daughter-in-law sent me the picture when I was looking for
a photo of Lon and Leta for their Bishop page.    Shirley K

Bill - When I come home I will get information from the two daughters-in-law
that I know are still around Mexico and Wellsville re. the Covington page.
Lon and Leta Bishop had no children.  "Jack" and Mary Bishop had no children.
Of the Covington girls Ruth Peery and Lester had no children.  I don't
believe the Hales (Luna and Walter) had any children and Mary Yaeger had no
