I am the son of Rita Ollis, (from Whitaker Branch, Avery Co. NC) who is not listed on the Family Tree Maker web link. I was simply interested in our name when I ran across the web-site for the first time and realized my mother had been omitted and her sister was listed wrong.I have no idea who to tell or if anyone can really do anything about it. I do not know the short hand and/or numbering system you use on this site. Nor do I have any idea if anyone can even correct this site. However, this may be of interest to some of you "Ollis die-hards" either way.
On Family Tree Maker's web site/OLLIS pg. 24 ---(see link below)
Ollis, Woodfill Baskan (My Great Grandfather) Ollis, Audie Married Buchanan, Bertha (My Grandfather and Grandmother)
Their children in Chronologic order were:
Ollis, Verta Ollis, Boyd Ollis, Edward Ollis, Rita Ollis, Lois Ollis, Wayne
As you may have noticed on the web site -- Rita was not listed at all. Verta was listed where Rita should be, and there is no Vesta at all.I can see how Vesta/Verta could be easily confused but there is only one (my awesome aunt verta)!!!! Quite possibly the sweetest woman on the face of the planet!!!!!
I am not 100% sure about all their birth dates, and you may not care!!! LOL!!!!The family has grown a great deal.In fact, they are all grandparents now, so there are a couple generations not listed.
If you would like any further information about my small branch of the tree, please feel free to contact me. However, I assure you I could not even be considered an amateur ---- I'm still trying to find out who I am.I'm not sure how much help I can be.
Thank you all for helping organize this information. If anyone is interested in helping correct these, please let me know. I will be glad to help -- but I'm clueless!!!!
