My father only had one sister.. she married Dr. John Wagley. They moved to Cleburne, Texas.. she died 15 or 20 years ago leaving 5 children and they live at the same place. Dr. Wagley is also dead years. There was another sister of fathers.. she married man by the name of Antony in New Orleans before the war she died soon after she married leaving no children. This is all I know of the Truly family. They all came from Miss. I can tell you more when I hear from my uncle W.P. Truly of Eastland that is if he is living. I have not heard from him in a long time. Hoping this will give you an idea of how our family are connected and that you will send me one of your records of your family and we will get in touch of each other. If it is so you can we would be proud to have you and family to visit us. This summer or fall I would be glad to get acquainted with you and possibility I could interest you in some of LA industries. Hoping to hear from you soon and give me an idea of who is Jas. Truly. Do you know him. Respectfully your friend, Fletcher W.E. Truly
