Doea anyone have any information on Harriet Drew of Wayne H. Moore (born late 1890's, died 1976 and 1982). They were my grandparents and were born in either Tampico or very close by. Harriet was a schoolteacher for a short time, but I am not sure where. Thank you, Peter Lynch peter_lynch@comcast.net
