Karen Currell provided a copy of a letter and genealogical notes written by Elva on 13 and 20 August 1949 to the family of William Coller. Segments of her letter of 13 August to the family are included under the individual records regarding whom the comments were made. Her note of 20 Aug 1949 is recorded here: "Dear Folks: Time goes on quickly. A week has passed already without this letter being mailed. Until recently I have kept saying 'It must be I'm getting old.' Now I say I am old and there's no guess work about it. I know it. Sister Franc and I always felt just like young folks. Now I know what the old feeling is like. One of the doctor's tablets which he prescribed for me is so exhilerating I do not take it as prescribed. It gives me that young feeling again. It peps me up and I just can't stand it. Its too hard on this old heart of mine. Enough said. Would like to hear from you all."

Richart Family Notes: She was a teacher, and never married.

Richart Family Notes, Eva's letter of 20 Nov 1950: "I have been feeling much better yesterday and today. I hope we're getting that measly old allergic exema, not contagious, under control at last. The inflamation has almost disappeared. . . . My heart has been bad and still is far from well. I guess its tired out. I didn't start out with my letter to tell you all this though. I had this in mind, if anything should happen to me that I cannot complete much more of our Biddle ancestral history that perhaps Miss Ethel Lindsley might give you a fact or two. I do not say positively that she can but maybe she can. The Jim Lindsley's farm and the Israel Biddle farm were across the road from one another.
