Hi John,

I have tried to contact relatives of the Albany victims but no luck. Two of them were only children and Ann Walker had siblings but I believe them to be passed on. I know her brother Robert was a POW in World War II. I mainly was able to contact classmates who told me what I know about them. Yes.....I've seen that video of the lady who was at the hospital. I've interviewed a couple of people who were helping out there in my research including a Red Cross nurse that was on the scene.

Wonderful article! It's important to keep the memory of the victims of this fire alive. For every person who has stayed in a hotel after has become more safe because of the 119 who died. I don't understand the connection made by Sister Ruby. If he had a relative or friend who ever died in a fire maybe he wouldn't write disrespectful comments of this sort. I've been researching the fire for two years now and have written an article about the victims from Thomaston, Georgia. Here's a link to the article.....
