My mom is Eula Mae (Chavis) Short Her mother was Beatrice (Harcrow) Chavis her father was Norman Chavis. (My grandfather)I visited my grandparents many times at their home in Bend, Oregon where Slim was a master carpenter and worked for himself. He was also an avid hunter (bird dog) and "Grammy" was a homemaker, gardener and deeply religious. Grandad passed away in New Mexico (Demming?) and Grammy died in a hospital in Tracy California. Both were cremated. Grandad's ashes were scattered in a riverbed near Los Lunas, NM. More on Grammys'.
Mom and I found this site today together, she told me that Norman (Slim) Chavis once saved either (Uncle) Tillman, Finis, or Boone from a flash flood in Texas that had washed his car downstream by pulling him out with a jacket.
I am interested in finding out about both the Chavis side and the Harcrow side. In particular Ira Harcrow who was my maternal great grandmother.
