Ira Nelson Saffell

My maiden name is Amy Saffell. I am the oldest of 13 children of Ira nelson Saffell and Mary Lois from CLarendon Ar. My grandfather was Ira Neson Saffell I. He was married to Flora Randolph, who was my grandmother. I never knew her b/c she and grandfather divorced when my dad was a small child. I only saw a picture of her took when she was very young. My grandfather married another lady, Ruth Wallace and she raised my dad. She and grandfather had 4 sons, Samuel, Frank, Donald and Gene, all are deceased except for Uncle Gene Saffell who lives in Poway, CA. My dad had been married two times before he married my mother. I had two half sisters, Annette and Ruth Ann. I only learned recently that my sister Annette passed away only a short time after my dad. And Ruth Ann, I have no idea where she is. I only saw her once when I was 12. I saw Annette several times but we lost touch after dad died.
If anyone has any other information or any questions. I heard several things over the years about my family but most things I know I learned from my dad's step mom and my dad.
My grandfather Ira Nelson Saffell wrote articles for a Memphis newspaper in the 40's.. He wrote under the name of "Joe Train".
I learned this from the people at Saffell Ar. when we attended the reunions.
