Thanks, I knew that John C. was James Franks brother but I did not know he had a son named Alva George. The Alva I was thinking of was Alva Goodman Meares and he was from Robeson County. Robeson County or Columbus County they are all related. Also James Frank had a son named Daniel but I did notknow he had named him the same as his father Daniel Wright Meares. I have all this stuff written down at home. At work now and it runs together sometimes.
