      "I am enclosing a copy of a letter which was in the possesion of my father, Elmer Brown POOL, son of James A. POOL & Ida IRISH, daughter of Harmon & Lydia (GREEN) IRISH.

      Altha PETTIT (Mrs. John) was born Althea IRISH 1795 in Vermont. She was the sister of Hiram whose letter appeared in KEYSTONE KUZZINS, Vol. 8, No. 4, May 1980, page 94, and half sister of Harmon. The IRISH family setteled in Erie County about 1835.

      Gates was Samuel Gates IRISH, half brother of Altha. He was the first Territorial Treasurer of the Dakotas. Rosetta (BRANDISH) was his wife. Minerva and Heman were daughter and son of John and Altha. Roland (Rolin Charles) was the son of Harmon and Lydia..

      I believe Jefferson to be in Iowa. The PETTITS were in Crawford County, Pennsylvania, in 1850. Yours sincerely, (signed Alma POOL)" 25 Jan 1981. Submitted by Miss Alma POOL, Hollycroft Lane, 3-A, Mentor, OH 44060.

Illinois Winsors folks and Tillys are all well Altha has got a girl between 4 and 5 months old Mary has got a pair of twin girls that is 5 weeks old tomorrow 3 weeks ago day after tomorrow Minerva started for Pennsylvania and we got a letter from her day before yesterday she had arrived, safe there if you should see any of Harmons folks give our love to them and tell them that we think that Harmon or Lydia or Roland. some of them might write to us if they should try right hard and if some of you dont write I will soon trouble you with reading another letter John says he dont want to brag any about it but he thinks he has raised enough this year for our own use says tell you that he raised. 214 bushels of wheat over 300 bushel of oats and 11 good hogs to fat and corn enough to fat them and some left to winter his store hogs 1 roaring good cow to fat and pumpkins enough to fat her on plenty of all kinds of garden sauce except parsnips two good, cows now and another coming in in the spring and that he has got above work has not worked a day for 18 months and never expects ta do another days work as long as he lives but I have nothing to brag of only I have to work as hard as ever and if I am alive and well tomorrow I expect to dig potatoes John says he would go out there this winter if his leg was not so bad but he dont pretend to go across the house without crutahes and, we think you can come and see us the easiest we have just heard from Hemans folks and from Wellsburg and they were all well I must now close we send our love to you all and want you to be sure and some of you write as soon as you get this and come and see us as soon as you can I remain your as ever
