I am going to go out on a limb here and say my first cousins, Shawn Thrall (Donlad's son), and Gregori Thrall are previous posters here. I have heard of this link through my Uncle Chris. I used to have a picture and link to an old culpeper paper article regarding R.P. but can no longer find it online. I believe this story to be accurate and also would like to point out this link, as our former relative is known to be a painter as well.http://www.superstock.com/stock-photos-images/862-1196
any further info would be much appreciated.
