This was my Great Grandma Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON yearbook from when she was in 8th grade at West Union School. The book was made of paper with pictures glued in it. I believe some of her siblings are in the younger grades.

This letter was written by Addie WARD CONN to her daughter Jessie Opal CONN FENN BRITTON. This letter confirms the names Nancy PRICE and William WARD that I thought were the parents. My great aunt had this letter but she must have forgotten about this information. I was excited when I found it.
Dear Babe and all

My great grandpa Roy Eugene TRENT was a Southpaw pitcher in baseball. He played for the Wheatland Reds who was managed by his future father-in-law, Weaver STAFFORD. His brother Glenn TRENT and future brother-in-law Paul STAFFORD were also on the team. He also attended a training camp for the Indianapolis Indians farmers league and St. Louis Cardinals. In 1936, he went to Union City, Tennessee to play in the Kitty League.
Roy TRENT is center on the top row.
I was scanning in photographs of my Aunt’s and this one was in the stack. “Watsons” was written on the back. I don’t know of any related Watsons. Might be friends or relations to CONN’s or FENN’s.
