Editor's Note: One in; one out with the White sisters.  There is something about those girls that really gnaws at me.  As you may know, I can't find them in the census and I don't how they know Allen.  I don't understand why they both are so focused on Allen and I don't think Frank approves of them because of the time he "broke into" Allen's chest and read all of his letters.  White is too common of a name to really narrow it down.  You'd think the name Verna would be helpful in isolating possibilities but it is not.  Leads anyone?
