Amber O. Woodward
Dear Family members of Mr. Ansell, My name is Amber Oakes Woodward, I'm the granddaughter of Mr. Ansells half brother, Lendell James Waterman. They grew up together. I'm very sorry to hear of his passing. I was actually hoping to find him because I have a hand painted photograph of his father, William Cone Ansell, and his mother, Etta Miller Ansell Waterman. I would be happy to share copies of both if any of your family members are interested. Please contact me via email at awoodward2@yahoo.com. I also have a link to this photograph on Ancestry.com I think you can view the picture here; http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/1314045/person/1607204735/media/1?pgnum=1&pg=0&pgpl=pid|pgNum I look forward to hearing from you and again am sincerely sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Amber O. Woodward
