|I am researching the Wright/Shockley family tree on my father's side. His father's(my Grandfather) name was Foster Wright he was believed to French-Canadian and was 69 years old when my father Walter Wright was born in Louisville Ky on the 2nd of Feb 1929.|
His wife (my Grandmother)name was Goldie Shockley, she was born on the 4th of March 1898 and was believed to had been Cherokee and Chickasaw Indian, they moved from Tenn. to Franklin,Ky., then to Louisville Ky, She died on the 7th of Nov 1974 (I could be off a few days on the day that she died)I don't know much about the kids, my dad said that they were a lot older than he was, but I do know that two of his sisters died, one died in a house fire. he had a brother named Jack and a half brother name Beverly (he calls himself Junie)King. Her name changed to King later when she married Bev Father, but she still went by her Ex-Husband's name.
In addition i'm researching my mother's family. Her name was Frances Etta Ricketts, Her mother's name was Joetta Ricketts (I am unsure of her madden name)I believe she was of mixed race.
Her father's name was Joseph Ricketts, he was African-American. There children's names were:Joseph, James, Steve,Frances, and Morris.Her second husbans's name was Richard Strangler and they lived in California.
Any information you could give me will be most appreciated. I am also willing to share information that I find out also.
