Mystery Photos ... Can You Help?
I became aware of a box of photos and diaries this week that were left in the office of the late Dr. Terry Thompson (south of 5th & Main below). The only name found was Dorothy Campbell. She may have been ~1935 graduate from Sapulpa? The photo above is just a random selection of photos that are likely her family members. If you have any information that might help return this collection to a family member contact me:
Sept. 11, 2007: -- Chiropractor Dr. Terry Thompson set up business here in Collinsville at 118 S. 5th Street (Suite A) after relocating from Coffeyville, Kansas.
Thanks to you and your readers, I have found the owners of the old family photos and diaries.
Thanks so much for your willingness to help.
