I am looking for any further information on Paralee Luticia GROOMER. After much searching I have yet to find anything on her background or parents. Her daughter Tennessee commissioned a family tree book in the late 1960s or 1970s. If anyone has seen a copy of this book please, please let me know.
I would also like to find family members. If you think you may be related to or descendants of anyone here please e-mail me. I have a lot of information to share.
