Dear John

After our talk last eve. I think you are named, John, for our grandfather Muir- Sarah and I Eldest Daughters were naimed for our two grandmothers.
Fathers mother was an English woman. Sarah Hague. Yourself and David were named for our grandfathers. Then Dan has Fathers name & Annie mothers, Mary was named for Fathers Sister and Joanna for one of mothers Sisters, time about a name out of the twp familys seems to have been the rule.
I think it would be well



to question Sarah on the Subject. you could have an answer by tomorrow, if inhast"


[in margin: Maggie on names of our family]
