Notes

Microfiche of ms. and typescript collection.

"The records which are contained on this microfiche consist primarily of papers which were handritten by a Mr. Alvin Twyman Beall. Mr. Beall married Nancy Ann Wade, the daughter of Jesse Wade and Lucy Wills ... I have been told that Mr. Beall began this record in about 1908 ... They are currently in the possession of Lynn (Mrs. Paul) Reis of Lake Jackson, Texas... Once restoration was done, I began sorting the papers into their present order. Since there were a few papers which did not seem to fit into the collection, I have place them at the end under the heading 'unconnected data' ..." [signed] (Betty) Elizabeth Ann (Wade) Crenshaw

Includes some material by Mrs. Reis' grandmother, Mary Lee Hoskins, and letters, newspaper articles, and a genealogical sketch on the Wade family by Major O. T. (Tom) Wills, Anderson, Indiana.
