Yes! the first marriage was in that area. And his oldest daughter Sybal still lives in Summit. The two boy are gone. Bessie like I said was not naturley his. But he claimed her as his, and gave her his name. Cora is gone. I got most of the information from Cora and Bessie. I've been trying to quiz Ruby, she is Cecil's half sister from the second marriage of Cora. Cora was half cherokee & half English. She married Alvin McGarity after Fred died. I tried to make it brief. But if you would like more info. I will send it to you via e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org thank you wonda P.S. I called Nick and read him the info you sent earlier. And he has been getting excited about finding out information about his family like I have. He lives in Las Vegas.
