I was wondering how Margaret Lindsley Warden knew so much about the Allens. Well, it turns out that Margaret is second cousins with Cornelle Lindsley (Cornelle’s father, Adrien, was Margaret’s mother, Annie’s first cousin). (Yes, the same Lindsleys of Third and Lindsley fame). Cornelle Lindsley married Sloss Baxter, who was Sue’s nephew.
Her reporting isn’t just reporting.
It’s family gossip.
