      Dear Miss Lea:

      Yours of the 13th was promptly received. I thank you for the information regarding the Lea family and found it interesting. I have not seen Addie lately as she lives so far, and neither of us has a car available, at our disposal. I will copy the data and give her the typed copy as you had intended sending it to her. When cousin Eugenia was here she let me copy from the data she had, and later I wrote to her sister Willie but she gave me no dates. I think they are descendants of the forefathers of Solomon Lea, while I am from the father's side, Dr. Calvin Lea. He was my mother's first cousin. Addie and I were named for my grandmother, daughter of Rebecca Lea.

      Yours sincerely,

      Adilea Henderson Jordan (Mrs. Thomas A. Jordan)
      546 Egan St.
      Shreveport, Louisiana
      _______________

      Notes: To help tie in these persons with North Carolina and Louisiana Lea, I will list their line:

      Adilea's father's side was Dr. Calvin Lea

      James Lea and Ann Herndon (married 1731)
      John Lea and Winefred (will 1803)
      Benjamin J. Lea and Nancy Kerr
      Dr. Calvin Lea Married (1) Emily Griffin in Mississippi (son James Kerr Lea); (2) Sarah Hayes.

      Calvin Lea's brother, James Kerr Lea, married a Griffin sister, who died after giving birth to several children.
