    (1) Various members of the Gutierrez and Fallo/Slay families visit the Gautier, Mississippi fishing camp of Lee and Katherine Gutierrez. Also seen is family friend Henry Swann. [I think that might be Ziggy driving the boat at the end of this section--is that right?. Who is the man next to him? It doesn't look like Paw-Paw Lee (Gutierrez, Sr.).]

    (3) Henry and Melba Gutierrez at the amusement park on the beach in Biloxi with daughters Paige, Sybil and Roxann. The boats seen were built by Henry F. Fountain, Sr. (At least one living or private individual is linked to this item - Details withheld.)
