      I'm very interested, Gloria. I'm trying to honor her by
      putting her in place with the other historians of East
      Greenwich. She has a DAR bronze at her grave with her
      name on it , so I think that and having her lineage
      gives her a lot of credibility.

      It would be nice to have a picture, but at this point I
      just want to know who she was.

      Thank you for any help.
