Mary Lou has a mystery to solve and is looking for clues to its resolution. Jennie Villett (number 6ii), daughter of George Villett, (number 6) and her husband were reputed to be expert riders. In the 1940's they crossed the border from the US into Mexico on horseback with a herd of horses. The husband may have been a horse breeder or rancher. They were never seen alive again, and the bodies were never recovered. It is her goal to locate the remains of Jennie's body and provide a decent burial. Jennie may have used the first name "Jeane", and she and husband may have lived in Arizona. If you think you can help her, please contact her at the email address above.
