The Garnett Leroy Estle I was talking about in my first message was from Anderson, Indiana. His first wife Dorothy Howard was from Lucedale, Mississippi.
Leroy's parents would have been Garnett Leroy Estle (Sr.), and his mother Bertha Stevens (Possibly Stephens, I'm not sure).
He also had a brother, Gerlad, and a sister, Myrtle.
His second wife my grandmother said was named, she thought, Rosie???... My mother can remember when Leroy came to visit them and "Rosie" was with him, that she wore a lot of jewelry ( I think my mother said she was around 8 years old when this meeting took place.
My mother's name is Betty Lue Estle Parker, she had two full blood sister's : Evelyn Louise Estle Holliman, and Dorothy Naomi Estle Brannan ("Shug", to all her friends). Mama also has one brother, Terry Lee Estle. Although he has the last name of Estle, we are all pretty sure he was not fathered by Leroy, but Herman Roberts...
If any of this sounds familiar to anyone out there, please let me know. We are all interested in discovering if we still have family in the North. Thank you, Tina Brewer
