Looking for information about the wife and children of Dudley Jerome Groce. The following information is from the Bible of Bertie Mae Groce Langdale Black. Bertie Mae Groce was born July 20, 1903 in Cedartown, GA to Dudley Jerome Groce and Lillie Sue ?. Her Bible has the following info:
Parents: Married May 13, 1902 Cedartown, GA Dudley Jerome Groce b. Carrolton, GA d. October 6, 1908 Cedartown, GA Lillie Sue Groce b. October 10, 1886 Cedartown, GA D. October 31, 1963 Bamberg, SC She married James Ward after Dudley's death. She is buried at South End Cemetery in Bamberg, SC.
Children: William Harold Groce b. April 18, 1906 Cedartown, GA
Bertie Mae Groce b. July 20, 1903 Cedartown, GA
Lillie Sue Groce may be Lillian Knight. Looking for confirmation on this.
Other online postings show children not listed in this Bible. (Ora, Leone, Gladys, Iris, Frankie Lee) I would appreciate any information on these siblings of Bertie and William. Family lore says that after Lillie's husband died, Lillie had to go to work to support her children. She had to leave her baby with one of her other young children. Food was scarce and the baby died.
