Juanita:

I only recently found that Effie Tannehill had married Henry Shoffner. It is the Tannehills that I am researching.

It would make sense that Henry had married earlier since he was about 20 years older than Effie. Can you tell me anything about Effie to assuage my need to put flesh and bones on these distant family members? Was she tall and thin or short and round? Did she smile or did she grumble? Did she make cookies for you when you came to visit? Was your father raised by Effie or was he nearly grown by the time that Henry married Effie? Do you know if Henry and Effie had children also? Or did he have children only from his first marriage?

So many questions - I hope that you can answer them! <g>

When we passed through Fallon recently, I looked in the phone book to see if there were any Shoffners still there - and none were listed. I hope to go back some time this summer to look through court house records.

Please feel free to contact me via Email if you wish.
