  1. Yes, that picture really is you, Marlin. Or rather, you really are that picture. Know that we are thinking about you and love you.

  5. Dear Marlin,

    My name is Clavis Ballard. I am the great grandson of Mariah Baker Hunn (1866-1969). My great grandmother was the younger sister of Nannie Baker Thornton (1862-1939). I saw your family information on Ancestry.com.

    About a year ago we found some old photos from my grandfather’s (Clarence Hunn) album. There was a picture of your grandparents Ruby and Edgar May on a postcard from Sylmar, CA.

    In the 1870 U. S. Federal Census, our family was in Burkesville, Cumberland, Kentucky. The Bakers moved to Hiawatha, Kansas in the mid 1880’s with our great great grandmother Isabell Baker (1830-1928). According to the Kansas records, your great grandmother was married to Preston Thornton (1856-1923).

    The Thornton family moved to Atchison, Kansas in the early 1900’s while the Hunn family remained in Hiawatha before moving to Trinidad, Colorado in the early 1920’s. The family of Clarence Hunn has been in Los Angeles since 1945.

    This past summer I visited Hiawatha, Kansas to meet members of the Baker family. Although most of them are in their 80’s and 90’s, they remember your grandparents and your father Roland Thornton May.

    If I have written to the correct family member, it would be nice to exchange family information. I can be reached at the following email address: cajmusic@sbcglobal.net.

    Your Cousin,

    Clavis Ballard
