To the best of my knowledge
Effie Mae Tunnell, m. Samuel Mark Morelock, was the mother
of Anna Marie 'Marie' Tunnell aka Morelock. The father of
Marie, according to Geraldine Staten Morelock (Howard's
mother), was Bill Conkin. This was related to me personally.
Blanche's father, however, was Samuel Mark Morelock.
Marie, b. 1 Aug 1930, Kingsport, Sullivan Co TN, d. 24 Nov
1990, Kingsport, Sullivan Co TN; married John Frank Penley,
b. 12 Aug 1927, Kingsport, Sullivan Co TN, d. Jun 2003 in
Nashville, TN, bur. Oak Hill Cemetery, Kingsport, Sullivan
Co TN. If I recall, he was hospitalized there for hip
replacement surgery, but died of staph infection, per
James Bradshaw, his dear friend whom I have met.
John was brother to Fannie Penley (Dec 1898-1980) who was
also the mother of the 2nd son of Orgie James Morelock
(7 Feb 1887-7 Sep 1969). Fannie married unknown Grizzel.
This 2nd son was reared by the Grizzels, names: 'Junior',
'Dub', et al, Grizzel, b. abt. 1937.
I think Fannie and John Penley were siblings, albeit
several years apart. If I find more in my files, I'll
share it, as I think the unknown Grizzel was also James,
and was a short fellow.
