Tonight, I had a phone conversation with two newly found cousins from New York. One of them recently visited my blog and posted a comment. I was very excited to make contact with her by phone.
One the positive things from this conversation tonight is that I learned the name of a lady usher who was in a photo with my Aunt Mary. I've looked at this photo many times since I was a child. My grandmother was only able to indentify two of the three ushers, her sister Mary Johnson (right side) and their cousin Katie Higgs Haskins (middle). The usher on the left hand side has been identified as Ida Washington.
