Family Record by Lucy Jane Lawson

From the files of Stephen M. Lawson

The originals of the following notarized statement and separate family record was borrowed from George O. Lawson, son of Lucy Jane (Freeman) Lawson, on October 3, 1995, and returned to him after photocopies were obtained.

Both sheets contain various pencil notations in the handwriting of Lucy Jane Lawson, and both sheets were typed with the same typewriter, except for the notary statement. A comparison of the characters indicates that the same typewriter was used by Lucy to type her Personal History on Nov. 5, 1931.

The first page was signed before a Notary Public by Malinda Margrett Freeman, then age 87.
