While using a search engine to obtain an address, I hoped, for an author of

Check with your local public librarian to learn whether that library may have
an agreement with FHL in SLC for interlibrary loans. I understand this is in
effect in some places.
PS If anyone has a new e-mail address for Rosalie Edith Davis of Manchester,
MO, will you please share it with the list. She is the abstractor of many
early records of Louisa Co.--and they are indexed, and in some cases, there
are maps of the time period.
