Daniel and Ala were my great grandparents.Ala lived with my grandmother, Annie Sue, when I was a child and I remember her well.
Except for your mother, I knew all of the other 7 children very well.There were many family reunions as I was growing up and I may well have attended the one in 67ish - I recall one around that time that was held at Helen's house in Rustburg. Could that be the one?Annie Sue had four daughters, Elsie, Eunice, Rachel and Hazel.Rachel was my mother.
I really believe that I met your mother at least once when she was in Richmond for some reason.I remember my mother speaking of her over the years and wondering where she might be.
I would be glad to provided any other info, if I can.
There are still many relatives living in the Rustburg/Lynchburg/Richmond areas.
