Thanks for the followup - most interesting to know I am descended from Jews. Mother always said she was a "Flatheaded Dutchman." Do not have an idea where that came from either. I am the only child of Dorothy Levy and Curtis L. Oswalt and only grandchild of Claude and Beulah Lusk Levy - I am not rotten. ha ha Also when I was born I had 2 sets of grandparents and 2 sets of great grandparents.
Which is sort of unusual to have that many older relatives.
When I can find it again - I found a piece of paper in a photo album belonging to my grandmother Levy that was copied from the old family Bible that my grandfather had and rightfully should have been his since he was the oldest son and should have gone to his son who had no children so I would have gotten it. Instead the youngest son of Jim and Ollie had a daughter that talked my grandmother out of that Bible and then would not let us use it to prove my mother's birth to Social Security since she did not have a birth certificate to collect SS payments. Do not get me started on the Bible again or my blood pressure will rise like crazy. Thanks for the followup and I will find and send you the list of James and Ollie's children, grandchildren and maybe greatgrandchildren.
