We first met Edie and Johnnie in August 1998 when I was doing my family tree research. Both Edie and Johnnie were very gracious, helpful and shared many family stories and history . We met again in 2010 when Edie invited Elizabeth and I , Theresa, Jeep and Hazel to a tasty lobster meal at her home. Wonderful memories and a lovely family.
