To Great great Grandfather Trammel,

Our family still holds you and your service in our souls with love. For so long we did not know who murdered you but now we know thanks to a great great grandson of Rooster Cogburn. You are honored in his book and we give you the greatest honor and love.

Lana Cheryl Bevill
Great Great Granddaughter
