Jim's Tidbits reminds her of family ties to Columbia mill business

Her Uncle Joe Knifley was a partner in group which bought Mr. G.B. Smith's two mills - the one in town and the one on the creek - in Columbia in 1921

Sue Sherman formerly Sue Ingram writes:
I just read with interest about the mill sale (JIM: Tidbits from History). One of the purchasers was Joe Knifley, half brother to my Dad, John Ingram. Uncle Joe Knifley was a mill owner for many years after which he and his wife, Elva Murrell Knifley, became employees of the Bank of Columbia. Joe and Elva were parents of Libbie Knifley Rogers and grandparents of Debbie Rogers Hall. Thanks for the interesting articles you print. I very much enjoyed the Christmas stories about the Waggener family. --Sue Sherman formerly Sue Ingram
Thanks, Sue Ingram Sherman. Thanks for bringing back wonderful memories of all these wonderful people, especially of your father, John Ingram. - EW
