This is AMAZING!!!!! Thank you so much!
My father is Billy Edward Reavis (Johnson). His mother is Minnie R Wright Reavis. I have been helping him look for information about his mother. I haven't been able to find very much at all. This is the most information I have seen so far.
She died when he was only 2 years old. He wants to find out how she died. The Johnson's found him living in a railroad car with a man that we haven't been able to identify. I don't think it was his father when he was 2 or 3 years old. The Johnson's raised him and when he married my mom, he changed his name.
I find it incredibly interesting that his mother's father (his paternal grandfather) looks to be adopted. Since, essentially, daddy was adopted, I am adopted and I have adopted two children.
If you have ANY other information you can give me on Minnie Reavis, I would very much appreciate it. If you can get a cause of death or death certificate, I would really appreciate that.
Thanks so much!
