Dear Gorden, [Private],

I am [Private, Private]. Tabitha Jane Durham was my great grandmother (I called her Grandma) and wife of Carter Perry Durham. I knew Grandma quite well. She lived the last years of her life in a house next to us in Longview, Texas that we built for her oldest daughter, Willie Belle Durham McGlathery, my grandmother, and her husband Hugh Monroe McGlathery. Grandma was a good old soul, full of life and always fun with us kids. Her daughter, Willie Belle was a bit dour but married to a wonderful and fun loving husband, Monroe, whom we all called Papa. I didn't know about Perry until much later in life. He married Grandma when she was 13, fathered 12 children, then left her and the children. My grandmother's youngest son, my uncle Noel, visited some of our Durham-Donaldson relatives many years ago. I believe he met them in Florida. I don't know of Perry's parents. Here are a few photos you may find interesting.
