Are there any Westbrook family members who are willing to fill in some history about our family? I’m looking for relatives of my grandparents Wesley Arnold Westbrook and Lillian Adena (Thomas) Westbrook from Steens, Mississippi.
In my possession are approximately 150 letters written by my father to my mother during WWII. He was in the Army Air Corp which became the Air Force. I am writing a book about the letters.
Dad was quite a letter writer and had some interesting ways to explain what was going on in his life and the world at that time. One example is his description of snowmelt on the mountains. He described them as bearded men who were getting a shave.
My intention is to include much of what he wrote along with my comments.
