Joy Rae South
Wanted to clear some confusion cousin on my line from Verna Lee South down:
I'm her eldest child Diana Lynn H
my brother is William South H
It's the custom in the H-line to have the eldest son carry the father's first name and the mother's maiden name as middle.
My Mother, Verna, would love to meet your side of the family. She only spoke once with her father in 1949 soon after my birth. She was told the next year by an unnamed aunt that he had died soon after she spoke to him. It wasn't until I began my genealogy hunt that I discovered otherwise. We are planning a trip to Iowa to continue on the hunt and introduce ourselves to any of the family who wish to meet us. Please feel free to contact me at my e-mail address of By the way you wouldn't know who Ray Stanton South's father is...? Diana
