I was delighted to read your latest message that clears up my grandfather questions on the "Ruffs". I would love to get your files on the Carrolls, I have ms word 97 on my home computer and word 2000 at work. Home address is Alvin Tyndall, 4372 Indiana Avenue, Winston-Salem, NC 27105. I look forward to getting your information soon. Perhaps together we can make some tracing of Howell's ancestry. Thanks again.
