About Our Family Research
My mother was born in a little town called Minters, Alabama, I guess she grew up there for a little while. She and here family latter moved to Orville, AL, when at the age of 19 she moved to New York, where she met my father James Mcmarus. A year and seven months later I was born on 10-02-63. I loved my father and every chance I got I wanted to spend the night with him. My mother sent us (me and my two sisters which are older than me) to live with my grandmother every summer in Alabama. (I grew very found of the south it was very beautiful to me) My dad was from New York, and his family lived there also excepted his only sister, she lived in California, he also had several other children one was the same age as me, we use to be at his mother's house together. Her name was MaMa Vi, That the only name I ever called her. Durring the summer of 1970 my mother sent us down here in Alabma and the next thing I know we was moving to Mobile I never got to tell my father goodbye or my grandmother and I never heard from them since. I'm quite sure they are dead by now at least my grandmother, seeing that I'm thiry-seven years old now, my father should be in his late seventys or early eightys.
