My maternal grandmother was Della Addington. She married my grandfather, Alfred Talbert. Both were from Barry County, Missouri. She had several brothers and sisters. One sister's name was Dora. I think she lived around Neosho or Seneca Missouri in the Newton County area. Was that your great-grandmother?
As a young boy of nine or ten years old I can remember meeting my great-aunt Dora. She was a tall woman with pretty snow white hair. I don't recall a husband at that time, he was probably deceased. As I recall, besides my grandmother, she had sister Lucy, a nurse in Neosho, Missouri; baby sister Lizzie in Neosho. Lizzie had daughter named Mary Ruth still living in Neosho, I think. Can't recall last names of any of the sisters. Dora's brothers were Joe and Frank Addington from Neosho and Seneca area. I think all of these siblings came from different mothers, because, my grandmother use to refer to some of them as half or step brothers and sisters. My grandmother died in 1962 and prior to her death she managed to destroy photos in a fire just after her stroke. My mother caught her buring these family treasures and stopped her from burning more, but if was too late. My mother has only a few photos left from either the Addington or Talbert family sides.
I look forward to hearing from you all again. Any photos, stories, etc, you can relay about this Addington line will be greatly appreciated.
