‘A kid from Tennessee’ discovers family roots in Seattle

I was born December 31, 1912 and weighed twelve pounds. I can remember a story that was told me when I was small about how my most interesting ancestors were Daniel Boone and Chief Sitting Bull. It might be that both are mythical but still after I was twelve years old we received a letter telling of how my first ancestor in this country came over on the Mayflower and crossed the mountains later with D Boone.

Of course I don’t deny but that this too may be mythical but this letter was written by a relative named Sals Sartin who had taken the “a” out of the name. This man had inquired into our ancestry and found out a few interesting points which he thought we would like to know and we were glad to know them.
