Thank you, Southborough Public Library

  We had a great turn out last night at the Southborough Public Library for my presentation on "Who is Aunt Mary Soule?"

   We learned that there can be hidden tresures in your old unlabeled photos.  In our journey last night we found out that a woman who was label as Aunt Mary in an old family photo was actually my wife's 2nd great grandmother, Caroline (Matthews) Read, from Scotland.  Also, one of the unknown friends in the photo turned out to be the real Aunt Mary Soule, 2nd wife of the famous John Payson Soule.

   Thank you, Southborough Public Library for letting me give this presentation and to everyone who came and participated in the great discussion afterwards.
