Date: 1941


Details: Ellie and Nellie Taylor were twins who had four other sisters. After their mother died in 1924, they grew up in an orphanage in Kentucky. In 1941, Ellie, then twenty-four, moved with four of her sisters to an apartment in Norfolk, Virginia. On June 27, she married a traveling salesman named Alan Davis Richland of New York City. Her sisters did not approve of the marriage, so she and Alan left Norfolk. The last communication from them was a postcard sent from Maryland in 1942. They were last known to be living in Atlanta, Georgia. Now, fifty years later, Nellie wants to be reunited with Ellie.
