I am so excited, I just returned from my family reunion in michigan. I do know that many of our relatives married each other, even sister and brother.They story I got from our tree is that Alex Tubbs married a woman name Penny in Perry County Ala. They had 5 children.Alex took the older boys to look for and never returned. My great great granma Penny was left with 2 children to raise alone. Eddie and Alesher Tubbs.They both married in Alabama Eddie married Laura, and Alesher married a man name Eugene McLaughlin. We have the rest of those lines down to a science. We are still searching for the older boys who left with Great Great Granpa Alex. I can only assume that the oldest boy name was likely Alex JR. Eddie and sister Aleasher stayed in clarksdale, BOBo Missippi with their spouses.
I believe this all to be true because Alesher baby girl Alma is still living with a sharp mine, at age 90. Eddie baby girl Bea is still living age 90 very sharp. These two are first cousins, and the only 2 living from that generation. they sat and talked at the family reunion July 10th 2010.
