My name is Amie Umfress. I was looking up my last name, curious as to where it came from, and I came across this site. I read the message boards and called my father to see if he recognized any of the names that had been mentioned. I have never really looked into my family tree or background before, until now.My fathers name is Jerry Umfress. His parents were Gladys and Johnny Umfress. My fathers grandparents were Earret Oren Umfress (AKA Sam) and Mattie Tucker-Umfress. My father did say that my grandfathers closest cousin was Doyle Umfress. He also recognized the name Stoke Umfress. He nor I know a whole lot about his father's family. I guess that is why I was curious to see where our name came from.

I saw your message and some of the information clicked as to what I'm trying to research. My grandfather was Trannie Umfress, who was Earret Orron "Sam's" half brother. Trannie was the son of Candace Wallace, and "Sam" the son of William "Billy" Albert Umfress and Della Harper. My Grandmother, Rosamae Frances, said that Sam married Hattie Tucker, so the information matches. I am still trying to locate exact times and places, but Trannie Umfress had three children by his first wife, Hattie Kelso - they were Milford Umfress, Elsie Umfress and Louise. Trannie and Frances had nine more children, of which Clara Umfress, Howard Umfress, Marie Umfress, Margaret Umfress, Elloise Umfress, Nellie and Iris Umfress are still living. Margaret, Marie, Nellie and Iris moved to California, and all but Marie are married. My mother is Iris Virginia Umfress (Rowland) and I must say, any information to the Mississippi or Missouri Umfresses would be appreciated. I will also forward what I can to you.

Good Luck!

Amie, We are distantly related. Ask your dad if he remembers me. Your grandmother, Gladys taught piano many years ago. My dad is James Dale, who is Doyle's brother. I might have some info on our families. Your dad use to drive a blue (I think) car that was loud! He also had long blond hair when he was younger! This has been MANY years ago, I was a teenager.

Cynthia, My great grandparents on my father's side were Umfress', and our family is mainly in Redbay, Al and MO.. We have a reunion every year at the Tishomingo State Park in May, I think it is the 3rd Sat. My grandmother is Lorine Umphress Taylor (Redbay, Al), she first married a Hall. She has a sister named Edith Umphress Scoby (MO) and a sister that recently passed who I always called Auntie, her husband was Vernon Pace. If any of these names sound familiar please let me know
