Apology and Thanks

Dana, Hugh, and Alexa:

Sorry this is so long in coming, I'm afraid I've been "out of pocket" for a while!

Thanks for the additional information and clarifications in your responses. I assumed that there had to be other background information that could not be included with the article, and look forward to reading the 2004 article Hugh mentioned.

I also want to apologize for the arrogant tone of my original post, which led me to cringe when I re-read it today. I do not appreciate such attitudes in others, and am sorry my note came across as it did. I must have been having a bad day, but that is no excuse.

Your responses, however, were very gracious -- and I am very grateful.

And thank you, Sandbar, for providing additional insight into this story of your ancestor. I look forward to researching his connection to Monroe, LA, which, as I said, is not far from where I grew up.

I enjoyed reading of the irony that your family knew some of the answers to the questions and debates swirling among historians and enthusiasts, and was quite unaware of the tempest!

Sincere regards,
Herb Holloway
