    This is reaching perhaps a bit, but... what if that is not a "J" at all, but a "K" ("Kackson"?) or an "H" ("Hack's on")?

    It's impossible to say definitively without seeing the original page and further samples of her printing from this period, but it almost assuredly is "Jackson." The small "∙" mark appears to be a remnant left over from erasure. What appears to be the extended aitch may just be a doodle.

    Or even Jackson. I'm not so sure that's a j.

    The "H" after the word Jackson may not be an H at all. IMO it looks like an M. Compare the M in Mountain Bell on the same page and the H she wrote for Hollywood. The letter after Jackson looks like how she would make a hasty M, IMO. Most will associate this with Jackson, Mississippi. But there is a Jackson in Michigan, Maine, Minnesota and Missouri. Given she reportedly had no Southern accent I would check Michigan first. JMO.

    Jackson MS IS likely because Ben Perkins' family lives there. He was born in Vicksburg MS, which is one town over . I really think Perkins had a much larger role than we have explored.

    Good catch! I also google mapped it and Jackson, Mississippi is only a 4 hour drive from Longview, TX. I don't know if that makes it more or less likely she had some connection there.

    Hmm..so I just did some research on the Ben Perkins Jr who died in 2013--nevermind. I needed to dig deeper before posting.

    Could it be possible that Jack is FLEK's son? It looks like it is the word Jack, then a dot then the word son. Also could it be the number 8 in front of the word Jack, possibly meaning her son Jack was 8 at the time the note was written? Just a thought.

    Considering what we know of LEK & some of the theories tossed out, it's as good a guess as any.

    If you look at the way she writes her "i" it almost looks like Jackison?
