Can you help me out?
I don't know if anyone could give me a hand. I was in this town 5 years ago. I have lost contact with a family named WAUGH. They used to live in Drennen, close to Summersville. As I'm abroad, I can't call information. If you think you can help me, please write me at my email below.
Thank you in advance
