6.  Old Business

a.  From Brian Clarke: “I remain in contact with the dendrochronologist at the Univ of Louisville and she remains very interested in a research trip down here.  I sent her some samples from my house to take a preliminary look at.  I also (just now) threw out the possibility of me/us collecting samples from some other log houses around these parts to add to her database as she has indicated that the dating data on pine logs from the Piedmont is not the best and that she is working to expand it.  [I was thinking in particular about the Davidson cabin, Wallace house, Latta (?), Stafford Slave Cabin, etc.]”
