    To Dorothy’s Family, You won’t know who I am but my parents (“Chief Deerfoot” or Dewey, wife Minnie) were close friends of Dorothy’s parents, JJ and Minnie, in the 30’s and 40’s. They traveled and worked together, and as I remember growing up they were lifetime friends. These two “Minnies” both named their daughters Dorothy, and that Dorothy is my sister. Dorothy’s husband Dale gave me and my other sister Ann our drivers licenses, mine while he and dad talked and caught up as years had passed without much contact. Our families were connected at one time, and perhaps you’ve heard mention of my dad, since the name is unique. I am now living in Tampa Florida and I see that Dorothy’s daughter lives in St. Petersburg. Feel free to contact me by email. I have an interesting old newspaper article around here somewhere referring to your grandparents. I’m sorry for your loss, and I jst wanted to share this little piece of family history. God bless, Betty Johnson on behalf of the Goins family of Johnson City
