|Edwin Martin Currier - Family Tree|
Edwin's letter dated November 2nd, '71 wasn't bashful about asking for detailed family history that he described as "all needful information that you can get respecting the members of your father's family...names...descendants...births...deaths...dates...as much as you can." I've tried that approach with "branches" of my family with varying degrees of success so I can empathize with Edwin's request and attention to detail. Having to do much of his research by mail was a huge endeavor so Edwin won my respect and admiration when I read his letters. It appears his inquiry met with success as evidenced by the second letter, this one dated November 10th. In the second letter Edwin acknowledges receipt of a response to his first letter "in good time" and remarks "I am glad to learn of the interest that you take in my contemplated work."
