September 17, 2008: Family history photo a pleasant treat
To The Editor: It was a pleasant surprise to see our mother, Bessie Easley, no. 21, in the Olde School photo, in a recent issue of the News. Number 24 in the picture is George Buster Balcom, now deceased. Bessie was born January 29, 1916 at Johnny Cake Lane, between Margaretville and New Kingston, the daughter of Bruce and Beulah Bronson Easley. Her parents divorced when she was a small child.
