"I have a copy of a letter dated May 17, 1937, that was written by Edra Lake. It was sent to me back in abt. year 2000 from the Michele Boniface, grand daughter to Sarah (Boulter) Boniface. Edra Lake is the daughter of Chas. W. Lake and grand daughter of Allen Lake. The letter included the marriage & death dates for Wells W. Lake and Harriet Sabin and the birth dates for their children. Included were the death dates for Isaac Sabin and Wealty Jackson Sabin. It states that Isaac and Wealthy were the parents of Edra's great grandmother Harriet Sabins. (she is the Harriet that married Wells Lake)."
"Edra, mentioned in the letter that she had located a Bible at Lydia (Moore) Howard's, daughter of Lucy Lake and Zara W. Moore. Lydia Moore was married to Foster M. Howard. Lucy Lake is the daughter of Wells Lake. Confused yet? I am ! " ~ Jo Ann Brohl

Harriett Sabins - my Great Grandmother
She was supposed to have been a seventh daughter. - People used to take sick children to her, for they thot she had the power to heal them.
If you hear anything from the lady you spoke of in letter, maybe she could tell more about it. Or some of the other members of the family.
Do you know for sure that Wells and Harriet Sabins Lake lived at what was called Pumpkin Hook? If so was it near Palmyra? Or did you go from here when too young?
