8 Nov 2015.  These Holt, Kite and Dodd research books were shipped to The Fayette Co, (GA) Historical Society on 2 Nov '15.  I am so thankful to have a place to permanently place them so that they may be used by these families.
   It is very difficult to part with this research.  Much time, over the last 29 years, has been spent in various archives and research facilities: lots of cranks on microfilm readers and many notes taken from dusty books.  I look back on these memories with great happiness.  
   Letters to Baxter Co Historical Society and Stone Co, Historical Societies in Arkansas have been sent for the Webb, King and Hutcheson material; waiting on answers.
   My happiness is tempered with disappointment over not finding any connection to a country of origin.  My research and Helen Hutcheson Webb's research failed to find ancestors that have a record of where they came from.  Most (really All that we researched) have been here so long that records are non-existent. Family researchers have found no written family records and few Bible records. Court house fires and lack of registering contribute.  Haven't been the DNA route yet.
