The following transcription is from a series of recordings my father made in the early 1990s:
Most of my kinfolk here on the Island came through my Grandma Mollie Steele. Her mother was Virginia Smith. The James Luther and Henrietta Smith family was a big family. They had three sons named James William, Francis Marion and Edward Dorsey. Their two daughters were Virginia and Kate. Right now here on the Island the old ones have gone on before us and we’re down to 4th and 5th cousins. I’m kin to over half the people living here in the little village.
