Hi Jim! That is my great uncle and can add more.You just helped solve a mystery too (more below) - so thanks ole buddy!
This set of my GGP are totally elusive. Have only added a couple of things in 12-15 years on them.They are also the GGP of Paula Bryant Killian that was active on the list years past. For years I chased her as Malinda Finley and found "7" and finally eliminated all but 2. You will love this part - moved in with mother after she had surgery a few years ago. One day I decided to clean out everything under my bed. Inside a plastic sack was a big Christmas candy box with GF Dave's Bible inside and his mother's name in his own cursive writing. No telling how many times I had moved the sack the box was in and hadn't opened it because I felt like I was snooping. I had not seen that Bible since I was a child. My GM Boles kept it in her trunk when she lived with us and would pull it out regularly and read from it. Mom has had it under the bed since she moved here over 20years ago. All that time it was so near yet so far. Blessing or curse: think
you all have heard my sad story about a hard drive with my huge old FTM I can't open. If I had not started over from scratch I feel sure I would have over looked a detail you (Jim) sent. Years ago Paula and I compared notes and couldn't figure out why GGM Malinda was our only relative in Union Cemetery. Makes sense now - her son's Wood in-law's were buried there! Paula and I had always heard she came down from MO to visit her boys, got sick, and died - weather was too bad to return her to MO where she had family. Thanks Jim!Marsha
