Hinshaw.  This letter, which appears to reference the family bible of Mary Ann Cunningham, confirms the children of William & Mary Ann:2

March 15, 1921 at home

Dear Aileen,

Responding to yours about Bill's [undecipherable].  Marys Bible shows A.J. as first born and May was the least.  Others were called John, Tom, Henry, Beth, Pauline, Ellie, Nancy, Jesse, Mary, Susan and Leroy.  

There were not around much what with them getting married, or dieing [sic] or moving away to Tennessee or Missoura [sic] or Arkansas.  I forget a lot.  A.J. always farmed like his dad.  Henry did some clerking.  John was a tinker and fixer.  

I'm glad you get home safely and that Bill and the children are safe.  

Mama Hinshaw
