Wish you could. I was trying to delete one of the pictures, but since I didn't put it on there, I cannot take it off and it looks like the person who put it in is dead. I will try to find out how to remove it.

RE: Paul Melvin Tibbs, Sr.
He was cremated and there was no service at all. I was really disappointed in it. I don't even think Linda put anything in the paper about it. James supposedly got the ashes. I will ask him about that too. Paul's wife Linda was not too well at the time and her daughter took over. She never liked Paul.

RE: Paul Melvin Tibbs, Sr.
I cant be 100%. But it was always known that Paul was her father. I know his name is not on the birth certificate, but I do know that John fought for custody and I believe they had a blood test done. I haven't talked to Paul or James for a long time (Paul and Virginia's sons) but I could write a note to James. Will see if he responds.

RE: Gertrude Seay Nicklis
Helo again. I contacted Gertrude Nicklis' Granddaughter Jody Wright who lives in Mechancisville. Jody says Kaye' name was Kaye Trimmer and her daughter is Carrie Trimmer. Carrie is on Jody's facebook page. I have not talked to Carrie for some time. I Know Kaye was born Thelma. Gertie would have nightmares and cry out for a Thelma and we had no idea who this Thelma was. Until Carrie was looking up Kaye's family and found Gertie thru the internet. That was a wonderful reunion. I never heard Gertie say what kind of a person her father was. Only the story that Julia did not feel well and sent Getrude from the house to get him . He told Gertrude he was busy fishing and did not go back to the house. When he did come back to the house Julia had passed. That was all Gertrude said about him . She and Thelma were sent to the orphanage together. Then one morning Getrude woke up and Thelma was gone. and Gertrude could not find her. Gertrude took that very hard for all her life. She felt some responsibility for Thelma's disappearance. The ophanage folks never told her that Thelma had been adopted. Kaye said her adoptive parents waited until her wedding day to tell her she was adopted.
Jody's email is if you wish to contact her. And my real name is Mamie, Peggie is my internet name. My email is I did find a Trimmer tree in the public trees but it has not been updated for some time.If I can help any more,let me know. I know John Seay one of the brothers had two sons who now live in Burkeville and a girl daughter who live outside Richmond. And he has another daughter that we did not know was his child until the Aunt who raised her died and the Aunt had written the girl a letter explaining everything. And that is when the girl found out that Uncle John was more than Uncle John.
Carrie had tried to do a tree way back when- that's how she found Getrude so she would probably help out too. Families are interesting. Let me know what you find out. You have unearthed a lot on the Seays that we did not know.

Paul Melvin Tibbs, Sr.
Actually according to his birth certificate Melvin Paul Tibbs. His birthday on his birth certificate is also either wrong or he has been using the wrong date all along. He was my daddy's brother. Thanks for the corrections. I seem to have lots of things wrong. I am correcting them as I go along. About Mary Teresa, I need to talk to her brothers about using John or Paul as her father. I know Paul was her biological father even tho Virginia and John were married when she was born.

RE: Gertrude Seay Nicklis
Thanks for the info. I knew Gertie for almost 35 years - Gertie lived with my parents after Charlie died- and I never now her Mom's name nor where she was buried. How many times did we drive by that church. And never knew. life is full of secrets and surprises. Gertie had another sister Thelma who was adopted from the orphanage right after they were placed there. Thelma was raised in NC and renamed Kate. Kate finally found Gertie after 70 plus years but then Kate moved to Connecticut and then California where she died. But I lost contact with Kate after she got ill in CT. Anyway thanks again.

RE: Kate Pearl Seay
You are so welcome. A photo is always more meaningful when there is a marker, isn't it? But it is still nice to see where the site is located.
