Hi Alison, you know I have no idea. It wasn't unusual for folks not to have middle names back then. On your grandmother Elfine Rushing, what was her DOB, POB and parents? When did she marry Luther? I didn't have her. I had Florence M b 12/9/1908 d 10/1978 married to your grandfather Luther. I don't even have their marriage date. Was Elfrine related to Delores Rushing b 9/30/1936 who married Dewey Garlotte Jr. I'm still searching for the parent's of Mary Ann Rushing b 7/6/1852 who married our Andrew Sylvester Fayard, parents of John Henry Fayard b 1878 your great grandfather. Have you locate parents on Lula Herrin? Also, one last question, what do you have for DOB's on your fathers sibings. I have that on Aden because being a twin to Al's mother and that of Alethia. Well, enough queations on my part. It great like you said to see someone else searching the same line. Your dad being a cousin to my ex-husband Albert Garlotte.
