Text:   Dear Elizabeth, Or should I say Cousin Elizabeth. It seems as tho (sic) I find a new one every day. Please excuse the paper. I almost have to have lines anymore. I have worked on the Gibson (Gipson) line a long time. Yes Prudence Lough was a sister of my ggrandmother Temperance. My mother was also Temperance. Enclosed is the 1850 census I got several years ago. Since Temperance was married in 1847 she is not listed. I have also taken the liberty of sending your name and address to Mr. Dale Walden, 1910 North 8th, Boise, Idaho 83702. He is also a greatgrandson of Peter and Prudence Lough. He can probably give you the whole history of the Lough family. Most of the Gibsons including the parents of Prudence, the Loughs and the Byranes are buried in a beautiful little country cemetery just a few miles from Olney. As I remember Robert C. Lough was known as Uncle Dutch. I have filled out a family sheet on the Peter Lough family. I am almost sure they are not in rotation (sic) and maybe some figures are incorrect. But I'm sure Mr. Walden can give you more help. Happy Hunting, Lola B. Taylor

Text:    Temperance Lough was born in Loudon County, West Virginia (sic) February 6, 1825. She was married to Richard Hocking July 22, 1841. To them were born eleven children of whom nine are still living, five sons and four daughters.
      "Aunt Temp" as she was familiarly called, was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal Church near Old Bone Gap at the age of 15, more than half a century ago. Besides the nine children, she has thirty-five grand-children and six great-grandchildren. She died at her home in Bone Gap very suddenly June 16, 1898, at the age of 73 yrs 4 mos 10 days.
      Having lived a consistent Christian life she died, as we believe, triumphantly.
      The writer preached her funeral sermon at 10:00 AM on Saturday morning. A large number of relatives and friends followed her remains to their final resting place and tenderly laid them away.
