Re: Flora Mae Harryman KS to CA 1900's
I typed a long message in response to you, but my computer malfunctioned and it is out there in the cosmos somewhere.My grandmother, Flora May Harryman, was your ancestor's sister.I know that the sisters were: Flora, Cora, Nora and Ida.The brothers were: Roscoe, George and Van.I also found a note in the front of one of my mother's address books that revealed that her grandparents were: Harvey Jackson Harryman and Mary Ellen Morgan.
My mom passed away a week ago today.Last week we visited the Artesia Cemetery to see the graves of our family.We looked for gramma's sisters and brothers, but did not find them.So, they must have different areas in the cemetery.
It is uncanny that your note was sent on the day of mom's funeral.It is also somewhat unusual that I was looking through mom's address book to be sure that I called all of our relatives to let them know about the funeral.
I have forwarded your message to my on-line cousins.They will also be elated to know that we have some Harryman cousins so that we can share stories, compare notes, and best of all, get to know you!!We may have met at a big family reunion that was held over fifty years ago at Aunt Ida and Uncle Jack's house.And...I do remember mom talking about her cousin Dallas.Dallas and Georgie are the two cousins she seemed to be closest to as a youngster.There were no doubt others that, if jogged a bit, my brain would recognize.
Please e-mail me at:
I am just thrilled that we can meet through this wonderful cyberspace.It is a true blessing to all of us to have modern technology assist us in knowing our families.
Can't wait for that family reunion!!I am sure that my cousins would wish to participate.
