My brother-in-law has been hard at work on his own family tree.

After the death of his mother, Mary Helen Rutherford Rollins, on 15 Mar 2014, Harry found a photo of her grandfather, David Childress Jordan, among her personal effects.

We still don't know David Jordan's exact date of death. But the photo is a treasure, because facts about Cricket's grandfather have been hard to come by.
