To Alice Blakemore's family. I want to send my condolences to the family. My husband & I met Alice years ago at a Seber family reunion in Texas. She had invited us and she had visited my Seber cousins in Allons, TN. Alice was so sweet and kind and made us feel like part of her Texas family. We had stayed in touch all these years. When Linda called me to let me know about Alice's death, I was so saddened. Linda please keep in touch with me. And please let me know whatever becomes of Alice's genealogy work on the Seber (Sieber) family, as I would be interested in receiving a copy. My grandmother was Eliza Seber Dennis and was from Allons, TN. God bless the family. Barb Coop (email - firstname.lastname@example.org
