Hi Ginger, How nice to receive your message.First, let me say that I knew your great-grandparents, your grand-parents, your mother and your uncle William.
My grandmother was Lettie Synthia Norman who married James Fulwood, brother of Mitchell P. Fulwood.James died about 1928 in Tampa, FL and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery.Lettie died in 1957 and is buried in Garden of Memories, Tampa.My father died in 1966 and is also buried in Oak Grove Cemetery.Lettie's father, Joseph Jackson Norman, died while living in Lettie's household, in 1936 and is also buried in Oak Grove Cemetery.
Your grandfather Henry was a very favorite nephew of Lettie's.I recall back in the '30s, he drilled a water well for Lettie.I was mostly raised by Lettie and often went with her to your grandparents home for a visit. I'm sure your mother recalls Lettie.Often times, your grandmother drove their old Model "A" our to Lettie's homefor a visit.That was on l40th Street in Tampa, near Busch Garden.
Another recollection I have of your great grandfather Mitchell is that he never learned to drive an automobile except for Henry Ford's old Model "T".In his later years those old cars were getting scarce, so Mitchell kept 2 or 3 on hand for parts to keephis favorite "T" running.
I have 7 grown children, 17 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.We held a (first time) Fulwood family reunion this past November in Nashville, Georgia, where my daughter Grace Inez Kennedy lives.It was a marvelous get together.Perhaps at our next one, you might enjoy coming. I and all the family would really enjoy meeting and visiting with you.I will keep you informed.
I know you have done a geat deal of research on the Fulwood family and, I think, also on the Norman family.I would appreciate anything you might care to share would be greatly appreciated.
