Hello......My grandmother, Harriet Mae Winters McElroy's father was John J. Winters and her mother was Mary E. DeGraw. His sister was Amelia Winters who married James William Weeden. I have a copy of his father's will and the above couple were remembered in it. John's obituary also mentions his sisters and whom they married. So this confirms in my mind that the family in your message on Roots is also connected to my family. Thank you for this.
