Recently I came upon a historical letter among the hundreds here at Pleasant Hill. Some of these are of little interest while others have great historical significance. This particular letter, penned by Maude Carter Crymble and sent to her stepmother, Mrs. A.M. Carter, was written on April 26, 1915 at 9 p.m.
Mrs. Crymble was a great-granddaughter of the well-known Rev. James King through his son, Cyrus King. Her mother was a daughter of Cyrus. She married Dr. A.M. Carter but died young. Dr. Carter then married Nannie, a daughter of Bristol’s first physician, B.F. Zimmerman.
