Updated March 5, 2001

About Our Family Research


I AM JUST STARTING MY RESEARCH HERE. MY GRAMPY IS THE SOURCE OF WHAT INFORMATION I HAVE RIGHT NOW. HIS NAME IS LOUIS LEON FLEMING SR. BORN JANUARY 31.1923 IN LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA. HIS MOTHER ELLA MAE HERNDON WAS BORN MAY 3,1880 IN MISSOURI AND PASSED MAY 30,1977 OF CORONARY HEART DISEASE AT THE AGE OF 94. HER PARENTS WERE ALSO FROM MISSOURI,GEORGE HERNDON, AND CARRIE MILLER. SHE WAS FIRST MARRIED TO A MR. BOWERS, THEY HAD 3 CHILDREN, MY GRAND UNCLES WILLIAM,AND GEORGE AND MY GRAND AUNT CATHERINE. ALL HAVE PASSED AWAY, UNCLE GEORGE AND AUNT CATHERINE PASSED IN THE 1990'S. GEORGE WESLEY BOWERS BORN 12-29 1910 PASSED 6-11-1996. HE HAD NO CHILDREN BUT WAS MARRIED TO COLEEN CLARK WHO PASSED AWAY OCTOBER 8,1987. AUNT CATHERINE PASSED AWAY

HER SECOND, AND FINAL MARRIAGE WAS TO MY GREATGRANDFATHER
GEORGE LEWIS FLEMING OF FLORIDA. WE DO NOT KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM. HIS PARENT WHO WERE ALSO FROM FLORIDA WERE GEORGE FLEMING AND FELICIA HOGIN. MY GREAT GRANDFATHER MARRIED MY GREATGRANDMOTHER JUNE 15, 1922 IN LOS ANGELES CALIFRNIA SHE WAS 42 YEARS OLD, FROM HIS APPEARANCE IN PHOTOS HE SEEMED TO BE OLDER THAN HER BY ATLEAST 5-10YEARS. THE WINESSES AT THEIR WEDDING WERE A.B EDLER, AND J.WALTER HANLY.
THEY DIVORCED WHEN HE WAS A YOUNG BOY AND WAS NOT A PART OF HIS LIFE ON A NCONSISTENT BASIS. MY GRANDFATHER WOULD SEE HIM FROM TIME TO TIME ON THE BUS. MY GREATGRANDMOTHER WAS OF AFRICAN AMERICAN AND SOME KIND OF CAUCASION DECENT. MY GRANDFATHER WAS OF ONLY CAUCASION DECENT FROM WHAT I'VE SEE IN PICTURES. WE KNOW THAT HE WORKED FOR THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES BUT UNFORTUNATELY ANY RECORD OF HIM WAS DESTROYED IN A FIRE. WE ASSUMED HIS DEATH WAS IN L.A. COUNTY, CALIFORNIA.

I AM ALSO LOOKINF FOR MY FATHER'S MOTHER'S FAMILY, CHARLEENE AUGUSTUS WILLIS, DAUGHTER OF EDNA AGNES WOODS AND GABRIEL MILES WILLIS BATESVILLE MISSOURI. SHE WAS MY GRAMPY FLEMING'S FIRST WIFE,SHE PASSED 6/11/1962. THEY MARRIED MAY 24,1942 AT THE AME CHURCH IN LOS ANGELES. SHE HAD 2 SISTERS, MATTIE LAURETTE AND JOEANNA MILES. HER FATHERS PARENTS NAMES WERE GABE WILLIS AND MATTIE DUNCAN. IT STOPS THERE. I DO BELIEVE BOTH SIBLINGD HAVE PASSED. HER SISTER MATTIE WAS BURIED WITH HER IN LINCOLN CEMETERY IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA.
