to george sisco, thank u very much!!!i do know that there is still family of charles plumley,plumlee??in the shirley area but i did not know thier names.i didn't want to upset any one with my info.due to the age of the tankersleys,i had heard that they were very old people,and a few months ago one of them had died,i read this in the news paper. i am finding it very hard to get information a bout people i don't know,expecialy when no one else wants to help.??? to include my mother who seems like she is helping me but gives me nothing to work with!!i'm only following this up because she told me that he was my dad,i just wanted to know a little bit about him.i would like to find a news article about his death or ss# and maybe a picture of him.mom doesn't seem to help much.any way i do very much appreciate your help.and if i get brave enough maybe i will try to contactone of the names that you have listed for me and ask some more questions!! again thank you very much this is more than i knew before!!!!patricia ann plumley goodnight cullum !!
