Sent you an email but I'm not sure if it would still be valid after all this time. Selma Gosnell Yarber was my great-grandmother. I remember visiting her during my childhood. You are correct that her grandfather raised her and so far I have been unable to find out exactly why, still working on it. My grandfather was Roy Yarber. He was one of nine children, five girls and four boys. Selma was born in 1900 and died in 1983. Her father's name was John Hill. Still looking for more info. Will get back to you if I find out more.
