HI, this is Demita and my research is for my extended family... family that I've never met or haven't seen in YEARS!
My last gathering with some family members was in May of 2000 @ my aunt Myra's graduation in Charleston,WV. I've heard that I have family in California... been told that my great grandma Mattie (known as grandma) was half Cherokee Indian and white, which was a story told by my great aunt Alice who is now also deceased. My family is torn for it seems like no real family since my grandma mattie pasted in the early 90's. At least than I had family around besides my mom. Now I am a mother of a 2 1/2 year old and it would be nice to have some kinda family grounding. So if you think your kin to me, let me know.
Also been told that grandma Mattie origanally came from Alabama, then from there on lived in Charleston, WV. I do know that my great grandfather (James Evans)lived in Ohio and always bought my cousins and I silver 1/2 dollars.
