Most are from family members: niece Roana Snyder; John's brother E.S. Linderman; cousin Rush Labar; and Almira Balcock, who was possibly Lucy's mother. A few were addressed to Mary Linderman, who was possibly John's mother. Almira's letters are poorly spelled, and most of Roana's were written when she was a child.
