    This from Lalu:
    My memory of the connections is fragmented. Nannie Clark (her mother was a Fluellen?) was adopted by John D Fluellen. When her adopted mother died
    she joined her older sister Bessie with a great aunt Eugenia Fluellen who was a widow. They lived with her until they married (in a double wedding) Bessie had two girls and a son who died in WW2.Eugenia Ince was a much loved cousin of Jeana. She is glimpsed in the back row of the picture of the family and Jeana’s memorial in Austin. her daughter Betsy was a good friend of Robin.
    Jennie has the Fluellen tea service because she is a Eugenia.
    I wish we could all get together and share the bits we know or create our faly legends anew.

    From Ryland Safford Stacy:

    Gary, Sperry, and Malcolm,

    You might look for a book done about 20 years ago by Dorothy Knox Houghton (also an historian) on old Houston. It could have lots of interesting photos which you could use. Of course, my mother, Georgia Howard Safford, thought some of the pics she had in the book were not true – because Mom told me that our family had the very first two story house in Houston, as well as the first private telephone, and Dorothy Knox attributed the first 2 story house to someone in her family.????……. Mom was Nannie’s 3rd child, 10 years younger than Eugenia. Mom lived until the ripe old age of 92 – 2012. I’ll send Dorothy Knox a note asking if she happens to have a picture of 410 Austin too.
