Thanks for the post!Your husband and my dad are 2nd cousins.He remembers your husband's grandmother as Aunt Della and he thinks she moved away to Pickens Co., AL.Dad is your husband's cousin Wena's son.Gran is Della's brother Louis' daughter - one of them, the other two being Aunt Erin Fikes Duke (passed away last week) and Aunt Genevieve (Jo) Fikes Murphy.
I wonder if your husband knows of any of Millie Northam's brothers or sisters?I am trying to figure out how Great-Great-Grandma Millie Ann was related to my Great-Grandfather Benjamin Franklin Northam.I understand Millie's father was Sam B. Northam.I believe Benjamin Franklin Northam's father was John Northam (know nothing about him except that he came to Alabama from Texas).Millie Ann is my Dad's mother's mother and Ben Franklin is my dad's dad's father.Whew!Lucky me, I have both the Fikes and the Northams.:)
Anyway, not to get off the subject, but did you all get a copy of the Fikes Family Record by Scott Fikes from about 15 years ago or so?I have it here and will be glad to look up information, scan, e mail, etc.
Well, just to make things even murkier - haha - I will add that Benjamin Franklin Northam married a Dizanie PALMER.So, I've got PALMERS in here too.
