Our thanks to Lyndon Irwin of Bois d'Arc, Missouri for the picture of Oma and her family. Lyndon, is an in-depth genealogist, author, professor, sheep raiser (not the ordinary sheep, but Sheep!!) and much more. Yet, after an E-Bay purchase of photographs, he discovered the, above, picture of Oma and her family among them and decided to find a relative for her. Google was the first step, followed by a visit to Appleby Heritage website, then an email to Appleby Heritage to Dee, offering to send the postcard, cost free. Oma Appleby Salley is my (Dee) first cousin. Welcome Home, Oma.
