    Notes 
    • "Maw Maw [Lottie Duggan] told me that her mother once lived in the Old Brick House, and that when she lived there some officials tried to get her to sign up to take money because she was part Indian.  I suppose that could have been a scam. She refused to do it."--C. Paige Gutierrez, by email to HJG, 2/26/2015
