Trying Find info on my Grandfather, Loyd Carnes
Posted by: Richard Pope (ID *****4340) Date: March 09, 2010 at 16:55:57
  of 1686

Not sure the first name is spelled correct Loyd, Lloyd, or Loyde, but Carnes is correct. My Dad never knew much about his real Dad or their family, and I would love to know how to find out about them.

Any info or advice would be greatly appreciated.

The only info I have is he died when my Dad Harlan B born Dec 07 1937 was 18 months old, which should have put his death in 1939??. He died with a ruptured appendix. I don't know much anything else except they were from Rossville GA and my dad believes he had one maybe 2 sisters Martha and Ruth.

My Dad said he spent the night with his Aunt when he was very young and they lived out in Happy Valley Ga, but does not remember their name for sure.

My Dads Mothers Name was Lillian O Gray, birth March 1920 and she lived in Rossville GA, her parents were William and Hattie Gray. She had my dad when she was 17 years old.
