Mr. William Hiathco (family friend) has a book written by a Mrs. C. O. FENTON circa 1917 on the life of her daughter, SAGIE VELLA FENTON and printed by The Hollenbeck Press of Indianapolis. The title of the book is "Sagie Vella Fenton- Some Verses, Travel, Letters, and Addresses". Sagie attended Vassar College and appears to have written some of the poems included in the book. Mr. Wm. Hiathco would like to learn more about this family as apparently they are related in some way. Mr. Hiathco is a very light skinned man of color. One of his Grandmothers' was Indian and her husband is said to have been Caucasian. If anyone can help this gentleman, please contact me and I will see he gets the message. Thank you.
