Hi Debra. Your great-grandmother Lula and my great-grandmother, Gertrude were sisters. If what I gathered is correct, our great great grandmother Lucretia, the daughter of Lewis and Dinah Blackwell, married twice; first to Benjamin Newell, having two children from that union, Lula and Lizzy; then to William Sykes, having four children, Dinah, Harriet, Gertrude, and Pearl. Lucrecia and William raised two grandsons as well, Grady (son of Harriet) and Herman (son of Gertrude). Debra, are any of Lula and Abraham's children still living? I will gladly provide you with any information of my side of the family.
