A Decendant of this family provided me with an excerpt from a Book, that speaks of this Letcher family:
"I am working on my husband's Bozeman roots and I have a reprint of a very old Bozeman book, "Sketches of the Bozeman Family" by Rev.Joseph W Bozeman D. D. ,of Mississippi first printed in 1885 and reprinted by one of our relatives in Texas in 1981. Rev. Bozeman describes how he did his research by mail and visitation in this book...long before computers. Therefore I tend to trust it.
On Pages 31 and 32, he talks about Ann M. Bozeman as the fifth child of Nathan and Harriett Knotts Bozeman.
I quote, "A large fine looking lady, with coal black eyes and hair, a noble Christian woman, a devoted Baptist, with all the virtues of a model daughter, wife and mother, married John D. Letcher , and lived in Alabama, Coosa county, in comfortable circumstances, where they raised a family of five sons and five daughters. All of these they saw baptised between the age of eleven and eighteen years, and never heard one of them use profane language, never saw one of them take a drink of whiskey, or a chew of tobacco. Noble children worthy of their worthy parents. Their children:
