    -------

    To the Editor: In last Sunday's paper under the heading: "These Are Old Ones," I saw the names of two of Bay City's old pioneers, I would like to add to the list the names of Joseph and Aleck Guillette, Bay county's oldest pioneer twins.

    They were born in the old McCormick home in Lower Saginaw, in November, 1841, lived there till 1858, when they moved with their father to Hampton where they have resided continuously since.
