Unfortunately, my "dates" and information are limited right now, but I'll give you what I have, starting with my mom.
My mom (Joye Faye Gann, Born May 31 1950) was the only girl (she had 3 brothers, 2 older, 1 younger) of Marion Jewel Gann (b. August 20, 1915) and Audrey Geraldean Roberts (b. May 9, 1922)
Marion Jewel Gann is the son of Marion Stephenson Gann (possibly stevenson gann) and Minnie Lee Monroe.... to date, i haven't been able to find ANY location or date information for M.S. and Minnie. I BELIEVE they both died in Texas, but I can't find any birth information on any of them. What I Know for sure is that Marion Stephenson had at least 2 brothers. Malachi and Aaron. There were possibly as many as 7 other siblings of M.S. Gann. I have absolutely NO Information on Minnie Lee Monroe.
It is believed that the father of Marion S. Gann is George Gann, but we can't prove it yet.
If you can help, that'd be great!
Again, the most likely counties are Shelby County, Gregg County, Smith County, Upshur County, Panola County....
I know that a lot of my grandpa's family currently LIVE in PATROON Texas.
