I was able to track down Mr. Pope's wife, Mrs. Leona Henderson Pope. The most interesting thing is that she actually lives in the same county as many of my family in SC! And what's more--goes to the same church as about half my family members down there, the same little church that my 3rd great grandfather founded in the 1800s! Bizarre, bizarre!
The Popes experienced a fire in 1979 which completely wiped out all of their equipment, film, negatives, everything.
When I am in SC for Christmas/the new year, I'd like to plan a visit w/Mrs. Pope.
I am afraid I do not have much more of an update than that at the moment.
