Laura M Ruple Warner was the mother of Elizabeth "Libbie" Warner Camfield. Libbie was married to Anna's nephew, Fred Camfield and I believe that is why the letter is addressed to "Aunt Ann." Laura and Anna were contemporaries and I do not believe that they had a closer family relationship than that. The Warner family were friends and neighbors of Anna's parents, Michael & Sarah Ann Camfield. Boltis was Laura's son.
