Denver 3-29-76 To Joe Fairchild: Hi, Joe! As I re-filed the old photos of the lecturer and his phonograph etc. today I noticed a note by ?Mrs. Joe” stating you hand a Henton background. She mentioned the man from Oregon, George Henton, who wrote the Henton genealogy. I have a copy, now loaned to someone, but we never found the line to which we belong — a Mary Henton, or Hinton (underlined) —- who lived in Rockingham County, Va. (next paragraph) I am enclosing the family lines as I now have them, a copy, and if you are ever able to fill in anything on the Suters or Hintons, let me know. (next paragraph) Larry Kehn, my nieces husband, says you are old friends and sends his regards. He lives in Arvada, and we see them frequently. He has three girls and a boy, all half grown. (next paragraph) Hope you got the story I mailed a day or two ago which was in The Post Empire (underlined) section. Thanks for your help and regards. Harry E. Chrisman 10245 W. 14th Denver, 80215
