You are incredible at this! And thank you so much for your help and the work you did. I told my father how his mom died. He was so relieved that it wasn't something criminal. He worried that since he was just "given away", it was probably something bad that happened to her.
Wonder why Charles Harvey did take the older children but left Charles Harvey Jr and Billy? Why do you think the other kids were farmed out? Or do you mean, sent to work on farms?
The family that adopted daddy was Allen & Cora Johnson. They have twin sons - Donnie and Ronnie. But I don't think they had any other children.
On another note, I am trying to find my grandfather/mother's family from my mother's side. It's confusing because his name was Raymond Langley (no middle name that we know of) and his wife was Lela Lucille Lee Langley. If you look at my tree, you will see I attached a Raymond Clifford Langley, but I don't think that is correct. Raymond Langley (my grandfather) was born 6-28-1908 and died 6-7-1973. Raymond Clifford was born 7-13-1909 and died 1-25-73. They both are from the same area and both married to Lucille. So I'm so confused on it. Would you mind taking a look at seeing what I'm missing?
