Hi!I've recently decided to try and put together the family history as far back as I can take it, but I honestly don't know anything beyond my grandfather.Here is what information I have:
I have 3 siblings: Timothy Westley, Lydia Ruth, and Lindsay Elizabeth.My father is Jerry Deems, married to Donna Lou Buckley.
My grandfather was Clarence Deems.He had three children: Jerry Westley (my father), Barbara Deems Allen, and Sharon Deems Dhein. He was married to Edna Richards.They were divorced, and he was remarried to Genie (I don't know her maiden name).
Clarence had one brother that I know of, named Donald, who resided in Petersburg, VA until his death about a month ago.
My dad tells me that my grandfather legally changed his name from Deem to Deems, so prior to Clarence, the family name would have been Deem.
If anyone can pick up from there, I'd be more than happy to fill in the blanks for the rest of my end of the family.
