Verna Durrant Humphries family histories

Dates: 1975

This collection consists of two family histories written by Verna Durrant Humphries. The largest is 141 leaves and is bound. It is a history of the author's father, William Rendell Durrant (1877-1951), and her paternal uncle, Walter Henry Fitzgerald Durrant (1876-1952), as well as each man's posterity.
