Uncle Doug's Farm House
This drawing of Uncle Doug's Farmhouse was in Challis C H Dawson's typed manuscript that he mailed to his son, Gerard, who was attending Harvard University. Challis' enveloped was postmarked Feb. 8, 1947 from Suffolk, Virginia. The 8 envelopes containing the letters is located at the Suffolk-Nansemond Historical Society in Suffolk, Virginia. I have scanned copies of all the pages and the front of the envelopes.
Uncle Doug was Stephen Arnold Douglas Dawson, the younger brother of Challis' father, Taylor Dawson. Doug and his wife May lived in Scottland, Edgar Co, Illinois.
