I'm looking for information on my family.After searching through this board, and that of Ancestry.com I still am uncertain of which branch I am a descendant of.Any information I have are sketchy, as my grandmother did not talk about her family much.
My grandmothers name was Delsie Louise Pinson, married to Ralph M. Dick of PA.I believe she was born between 1920-1921 (in Simpson County, TN) and died in 1995.I have one great uncle that is still living in Murfreesboro, TN and his name is R.L. (those of us that are left don't know what that stands for!)I know my grandmother had another brother named Jimmie.
I know there was much tragedy in this side of my family.Like I said, my grandma didn't talk about it much, but whenever she did mention her parents, she refered to their deaths as "the accident."I had always assumed that they died together in a car accident or something.Recently, I was told that they had committed suicide within 3 months of each other, and my grandma's older brother committed suicide shortly thereafter.I don't know this for a fact, but I believe her parents to be a John Pinson and Margrett Pinson, who are both listed as deceased in 1937.All I know from here on out is that my grandmother raised her younger brothers after that point.
I also know that our family cemetary is an hour or two from Murfreesboro, as I remember visiting the cemetary as a child.
Anyone who can offer any information that traces back to these Pinsons?
