It seems that you and my mother are 2nd cousins! My mother is a Blanton who's maternal grandfather, (Bruce Piner) was your maternal grandfathers (Robert Piner) brother. Joseph Hill Piner was their Father. I have alot of the same information you have with Ella Rooks d. date of 11 June 1942. I would like more information on your side to fill in alot of blanks that I'm sure you have. I got alot of information from George Piner who also responded to this message. He gave me directions to the cemetary where Joseph Hill Piner is buried and I visited last time I was in NC. It is hard to find, but worth the effort if you get the chance. Hope to hear from you soon.
