The State of Texas
County of Navarro.

Before me, the undersigned authority, a Notary Public in and for
Navarro, County, Texas, on this day personally appeared Mrs.
Margaret H. Miller, known to me to be a person of unquestioned
veracity, who deposes and says:

     On Tuesday, November 10, 1946, I made a trip from Corsicana,
Texas, my home, to Midlothian, Texas, in the company of Mrs. T.
Walter(Ruth Peevey) Erwin, Jr.

     We visited in the home of Mrs. Fannie Middleton and there I
copied the following records from her family bible.  Mrs. Middleton
is 92 years old and her full name is Margaret Ann Fannie Matilda
Penelope Evergreen Peevey Middleton.  I give her full name because
in the bible record her initials are used in several places.

     Mrs. Middleton's daughter, Mrs. Pearl McKennon did not wish
the bible to be removed from the home but graciously permitted us
to transcribe all the records found therein.  Her address is Box 94,
Midlothian, Texas, if any further corroboration than this affidavit
is required.
