I am told this picture was taken Spring 1928 at Concord School.  The sixth boy from left, back row is Quinton Eugene Wright, 1918-1993.  He and his wife Ruby Williams Wright were killed in an auto accident July 27, 1993 in Cullman Co AL.   If you can get the names of the other students and teacher, I would appreciate the list.  Thanks again.

I am descended from Andrew Jasper Vines, brother of Lattie. I was in Birmingham (Alliance) visiting my father and also at a meeting where we are trying to make plans for a massive Vines reunion to take place in 2001. While I was there my father started talking about a small family cemetery. It turned out to be a small plot next to the old Lat Vines homeplace. I had not until this time known where Lattie and Lucinda were buried. There were only 5 graves consisting of Lattie, Lucinda, Wife of A.O. Richardson, Daughter of A.O. Richardson, and Son of A.O. Richardson. You probally already knew of these graves but I thought David Reed might like to know since he doesn't have them listed on the cementery site. I know I'm rambleing but I was really excited to find these graves.

In your April Newsletter there was reference to the 3 Waldrop brothers coming from North Carolina in 1818. There were 4 Waldrop brothers who came: Joseph, Robert, Zachariah and Eziekel. Eziekel and his family stayed only a short time. From here they moved on to Samantha in Tuscaloosa County. Still later they moved on to Mississippi and eventually wound up in Tennessee. These brothers were all born in North Carolina but they left and went to South Carolina (Spartanburg). From South Carolina they went to Kentucky and possibly did not stop but a very short time and then came to Jefferson County. One of Robert's sons was born (Andrew Jackson Waldrop) in Kentucky. All of my info had believed that they came from the Carolina's too. I,too, was most surprised to find that maybe there was a detour.

One of the oldest residential communities is the Crest.  This tract of land was partitioned off as lots in the late 30's and early 40's, with my parents buying several lots.  Also, Pope Crest, houses build on property formerly owned by the Lowery family.
