I was so surprised to see your message first thing when going on to MYRICK Genforum doing research as I have so diligently done over the past 25 years.
My father Bill Myrick & your father Weldon Myrick have been friends since the 1950's.We left Louisiana when I was 2 yrs old & first moved to the Panhandle & then on year later to Odessa.Daddy had already been on the road with Bill Monroe & the Bluegrass Boys for a few years & then started Bill Myrick & the Mayfield Brothers whose sister Lorena Mayfield married Sonny Curtis who was one of the Crickets with Buddy Holly with Tommy Allsup & Waylon Jennings & I'm thinking it may have been through this connection that he first met & worked with your father. They were friends over the decades. I worked with your Dad once in a session in Nashville.
Don't feel like the 'Lone Ranger' on not getting help from your parents on your research.Mine weren't too interested but I did know my Granny Myrick.I've done extensive research on the MYRICK lineage & found tons of info & I know I searched for info on your Dad's line & trying to remember what I found several years ago.I will think about it & get back to you.
It's wonderful to find you here.Daddy passed away in March & my mother is basically gone with Alzheimer's.
