My grandfather was Melton Sykes he died of cancer. His sister Bertha Sykes, my great aunt was married to Daniel Cammie Cupit, and then married another man who my father has said was named Carter Chappell. And, according to the story, Mary Ann Sykes who my father referred to as Aunt Molly? was born in Louisiana on Christmas Day. Supposedly the family was on its way to Texas from Mississippi, when their wagon broke a wheel.
