I am retired and live in the Texas Panhandle. I have been putting bio's and flowers on memorials for over six years, and when I couldn't find my grandparents, I decided I would add Memorials and put a voice to my families, I don't want them to be forgotten. This is a picture of my parents, they were Helen Elaine Lott and Steve William Lanning, they were born in 1918.
RE: Elizabeth Reed Jackson Oh, I found her. I suspect I sent a quote from Robert Pattons Book copyrighted 2000. Since I also provided the proper citation of the source it would be like adding information to a high school paper with the proper foot note, and not a violation of copyright.
RE: Leonard Elbert ...I'm related through his TIPTON line. I've some across some real funny things doin research. I'm sure a lot of em are gettin a good laugh @ some of us down here. My side has always had a funny sense of humor.
Take 4 instance, my GGMa Dovey TIPTON Maxwell. When we used 2 go out 2 visit her & Aunt Lucy TIPTON Trollinger, GGMa Dovey chewed tobacco & snuff. Guess she didn't like me much or just that she was real onery. As soon as I stepped up by her porch, she would spit her juice on my shoes. She only did that 2 me & not my other siblings.
She came 2 live with us & wouldn't you know it, she was put in my room. I was scared 2 close my eyes at night. Unfortunately, she passed away at our house. I have such vivid memories of her & Aunt Lucy.
I probably wrote U more than U wanted 2 know. If there's anything I can help U with, just let me know. Until then, hope U have a safe Labor Day.
Lotts of Mississippi Donna, I saw your posted Find A Grave memorial for Jane C Lott.Her husband John Britlain Lott was first married to my great grandmother Dovie Hawkins. My father grew up in Mississippi but left when he turned 16 and seldom went back. I only met my Mississippi family a couple of times and have very few photos of them.Do you possibly have any photos of John B. Lott or of Dovie Hawkins? If you would like for me to email you and tell you the story I was told about Dovie and John Lott let me know. Many thanks,charlotte
