Received the info you mailed and it's more than I expected. You have a lot of
information and in great format. I haven't had time to completely go through
it but hope to in the next two to three weeks. Taking two trips and hope to
have some reading time.

I go by Forrest and my Dad was Aubrey Veal. He used Lonnie but Alonza shows
up on the census. He never talked about his name and even named my brother
Lonnie Aubrey, Jr. I have run into the name Alonza used by other Veals in
Georgia so it makes you wonder.

Uncle Luther was a favorite Uncle and he came to Atlanta in 1949 to build a
home for us. Traveled back to LaGrange on the week-ends.

I have been to a few of Uncle Luther's family gatherings, and we have probably
met, it's just been a long time. I'm sure Ray remembers me.

Uncle Sercey and my Dad went to Atlanta in about 1927 to become barbers and
beauticians so I knew Uncle Sercey well.

As I review your information, will probably have questions and will also send
you any information I have that will add to your info.

Thanks and will talk to you soon.
