I am the 14th child of my father, Horace Wilbert Colbert, born 1894 in Coccoa, Florida
who married my mother, Carrie Mae Dickerson from Arabi, Georgia, born there on 3/11/1908.
My parents met in Florida and married in 1925. My father has a cousin from Ocala, Florida who had 13 children and I corresponded with one of my cousins who lives in Philadelphie, Pa. She told me she had a sister here in New York, and there are two brothers and a sister also living in Philadelphia. My family has been having family reunions for years but I never attended any of them because I was a Merchant Seaman for over 17 years. They had a reunion in my hometown of Lakeland, Florida but I was on a ship overseas and could not get leave. I have a sister, Rosa Aniece Colbert Taylor who lives in Baltimore, Maryland, a sister, Gwendolyn Colbert Dennis who lives in Lakeland, Florida, and two brothers Marvin Leon and Joseph Wilbur Colbert both in Lakeland also,
a sister, Archie Mae Colbert Griffin who lives in Jacksonville, Florida, a brother, Reverend Rheuben Benjamin Colbert who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, and my oldest brother,
Horace Wilbert Colbert, Jr. who lives in Saudi Arabia with his wife and family. My phone # is 718-693-11798, and my cell phone number is 917-371-7689. Hoping to hear from any of my relatives that I have not met.
