Letters to Editor

  1. Deborah Newnam Kudner says:

    Sara Newnam, pictured 3rd from left, is my Aunt. My father, Wm. Spry Denny Newnam, Jr. was her brother. All of her siblings also graduated from the Oxford High School… Joseph Spry Newnam, and Francis Usher Newnam. Sara married Capt. Wm. Lindale Benson, of the Oxford Ferry fame! We are a very proud Talbot County family.

    Thank you for this photo and story.
