Hello everyone, I am a beginner at the geneology stuff, but having a ball doing it.
I am looking for information on my Grandmother!I don't have much to go on this side of the family. My mom was 3 when her mother died and she was raised by her GrandParents. She has told me some stories, but not very much.
My Grandmother's name was Dorothy Seal and from Orange, Texas(USA). She died sometime in 1943 or 1944 in Orange, Texas. She was the first person in this area (possibly the state) to die of Polio. I know she was married at least 2 times, once to Jonathon Titus Simar (2 Children John Thomas Simar and my Mom). Then once to Maurice Gillet (No children). I have her parents as Lula V. Reeves (1894-1960) and John Thomas Seal (1885-1970) I have names from tombstones, and know they are connected, but am not sure how?
I have heard some stories about where they came from, but am very confused. Some stories are from Louisiana and some are from Picyune and Pearl River Mississippi. I am at a stand still and am not sure where to look from here. I hope to get more information from family members that no longer live in the area, but it has been awhile and I thought I would begin looking elsewhere.
I would appreciate any information anyone can provide for me.
