what a surprise to your receive your timely response. I grew up in F.G.'s home after my parents divorced in 1952. I was fortunate to be able to sit at the knees of Aunt Mattie, Uncle Lee and Uncle Tom and listen to the stories of their childhood together. I know that Mary Gladys had one Down's child named Ronnie. Ethel had 1 son Grady Jr. I don't remember about Telton. Uncle Tom lived across the road from us. My brother John and I were the one's who found him when he passed away. He had been mowing his lawn and had a major heart attack. He had three children
Ruth, Pernel, and Curtis. Ruth married Huey Howell and they had four sons...Delbert, John Carl, Hugh, and Jack. I know that J.C. and Jack are deceased. Hugh lives outside Magnolia, AR. I've lost touch with Delbert, but he used to live outside Dallas.
My mother's youngest sister Annie Maude Hyde Stephenson is living and may be able to provide some additional information. She is 91 but pretty cognitively with the program.
Uncle Lee was residing with his son Ollie in Pineville, LA when he expired. Ollie had two daughters who were missionaries.
Tom's son Curtis was married to "Dixie" and resided in Odessa, TX. they had two adopted children Mary and I don't remember the son's name.
Pernel was married to Noreida Bond. They had one son Travis. Pernel died and Noreida remarried an officer in the USAF. They were stationed in England and she did a complete genealogy search on the Hyde famil. I have been able to research to the point that the Hyde's are descended from the Stuart line in Scotland. Edward Hyde was the Earl of Clarenden under King Charles II and was the 1st provincial governor of the Charlestown Colony in SC. It was established @ Charlestown Landing. Edward's daughter Anne (with child)was the 1st wife of James, Duke of York the future King James II of England and VII of Scotland. They were the parents of Mary II of England and Scotland and Anne of Great Britain. Anne and James II are buried in Westminister Abbey, London, Eng. I will be going there this summer and plan to take pictures if possible.
Pernel and Norieda's son Travis careered in the Air Force and worked for the EPA post military retirement. He was residing with his wife Burma in San Antonio, TX when he expired from cancer in 2011.
Aunt Vera's was married to Jess Minor. Their son James lives in the Northeast Texas area and their daughter still resides in the Waldo area.
I will be speaking with my Aunt Ann and tell her of our contact with each other. If you would like to contact her, her phone number is A/C 318-686-1951. She is hard of hearing so you will have to speak loudly.
I remember that there was distant kin with the Gleason's but I'm not sure of my facts on that. Aunt Mattie ran a boarding house across from the Cotton Valley Cemetery and Mr. Gleason resided there for a while.
Thank you so much for shaing your information with me. It will be very valuable to pass on to my one nephew and his family.
